Corporate converged applications often have stringent network requirements, such as delay, jitter and network availability, which can directly affect their performance. As more converged applications rely on connectionless "best effort" IP telecommunication networks, their stability and resiliency become critical. Unplanned network failures contribute to lost sales, increased overtime, reduced employee productivity and declines in customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Different approaches can be followed to implement resilient networks. However, all of them have something in common, the need for a telecommunication line backup solution. Communication line backup services offer corporate applications alternative routes to access their servers in case of main line breakouts.
Traditional telecommunication line backup challenges
Traditional telecommunication line backup scenarios, such as the ISDN service, suffer from important limitations for implementing resilient network telecommunications:
- The required cabled infrastructure, such as copper lines in ISDN, may not be available, nor convenient to deploy at certain locations.
- The limited capacity present in these emergency services leads to a significant performance decrease in corporate applications. This issue becomes a big concern for mission critical applications, where an availability loss caused by a line failure may be unaffordable.
Benefits of redundant telecommunication lines through 2G/3G cellular routers
The stability achieved in recent 2G/3G networks makes cellular telecommunication technologies the best complement to landline services for the support of top quality corporate backup services. In addition, thanks to the DSL-like bandwidth available in recent 3G implementations, the corporate application availability loss is highly minimized.
Without the need of costly copper line deployments, the firm's network resiliency is enforced in a rapid and cost effective way.
Network resilience with the Teldat cellular router telecommunications backup solution
Teldat cellular routers have proven their success in secure and reliable telecommunication backup services for the Small and Medium sized Business, as well as in corporate branch offices. Through a simple cellular router deployment the network resilience is enhanced, while fast return on investment is assured.
Innovation, engineering quality and Teldat's expertise in cellular router solutions are combined to offer the utmost reliability and versatility in the cellular telecommunications access. The dual SIM support provides a failsafe backup over an alternative cellular provider - i.e. Carrier Diversity. Teldat's cellular backup performance is optimized with software-driven cellular failure detection techniques. Furthermore, the per SIM dual APN attachment permits "out-of-band" management of the router, in analogy to the managed land line services (learn more about Teldat cellular routers).
The vast protocol and functionality suite supplied by the business-graded Teldat Internetworking Software (CIT), not only guarantees interoperability and carrier-class manageability, but it also supports VPN's - with hardware boosted data encryption-, QoS, advanced routing and many other features. Thanks to the CIT, corporate network resiliency is achieved, and the cellular router telecommunication backup services are implemented with an optimal efficiency, leading to a rapid ROI, as well as customer satisfaction and loyalty.
