So, what exactly is Network Continuity?
Let’s start with what a network is:
Today’s businesses rely on technology now more than ever before. At the heart of a business’s technology is the network, which enables internal and external communication.
Think of the network as a company’s backbone, when it goes down, the company stops all communication and transactions.
Network downtime is a revenue nightmare.
An hour of downtime costs around $8,000 for a small business.
While many businesses understand the importance of protecting that data, there are still a large number of business owners that have not taken steps to keep it safe from a potential disaster.
A successful business’s future is dependent on making the right decisions and the right plans before a downtime event occurs.
Network Continuity is the white knight–downtime’s greatest weakness.
To paint a picture, imagine your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is performing maintenance causing the internet to go down. With no internet, your employees are may be unable to connect to cloud based applications, remote servers, use their phones, check email and perform daily tasks.
The interruption of your internet service has an adverse impact on productivity.
Network continuity is the opposite.
If there is a Network Continuity solution in place, there’s always internet connection. By connecting the network to a fully integrated 4G LTE failover, your entire office can operate when your ISP lets you down. Network Continuity ensures that you always have an internet connection available.
Thus, Network Continuity is a way to prevent loss of sales and customers.
It also helps keep your disaster recovery plan alive and well. Backup systems often work in real-time, saving information and data to the backup system. Without Network Continuity, the backup system can’t perform its job while the internet service is down.
To prevent disaster and loss of revenue, you need a strong recovery plan in place. Network Continuity is the key player to this plan. With Network Continuity, your small business can help protect itself from threats and ensure it is ready for whatever might happen.
