Research Solutions to Avoid Pitfalls

Though 4G LTE wireless provides new business continuity options, not all wireless backup choices constitute a best-in-class solution. While some routers come with cellular technology built-in, these typically offer limited firewall and routing capabilities and are subject to wireless reception interference. An integrated solution also represents a single point of failure and doesn't offer a means to remotely reset, update, or configure attached equipment using a backup connection.

No matter what department or functional area within a business, ask any manager and they will agree that any form of downtime ultimately has a negative impact on a company's bottom line. This, in fact, becomes an even more important issue when processing sales that are dependent on a connected point-of-sale system.

In today's competitive environment, it's imperative to ensure network connections at distributed enterprises have adequate backup across all locations. Retail locations, restaurants, kiosks, distribution centers or branch offices all require continuous connectivity to headquarters, network operations centers and secure payment processors.

Sierra Wireless provides a look at how a well-designed solution can be implemented and also deliver added value by enabling quick, remote fixes when network troubles occur.
