In normal usage your primary internet connection will carry all of your internet traffic, if the cable is cut and the primary internet connection is lost, then the router will detect the loss of signal and will promote a secondary connection to be the primary source of your internet. When normal service resumes then the connection will swing back to the primary with only a momentary blip in connectivity.
Not all broadband routers are capable of monitoring a primary internet connection to detect a failure or of handling dual WAN connections. If during our initial consultation we identify this to be the case on your network, then we will supply a quote to upgrade your existing equipment. This may include a business grade router or firewall to meet your organisations needs.
In some cases, the WiMax connection may be better than your existing connection. In this scenario, we can configure network equipment to provide load-balancing to give you an improved overall internet experience.
We will work with you, or supply your current IT support provider, all the necessary information to ensure that the routing and firewall settings are correctly configured. The settings and equipment are thoroughly tested to ensure that the system will work when needed.
