From Digi International: Why Failover is Essential for Business Operations

Nov 19, 2017
 

Imagine not having backup for your personal computer or your computer system at work. Unimaginable? Perhaps, but many devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) do not have a backup option when their connectivity goes down during a network outage, which is why an automated failover solution is so critical.

Failover is defined as a backup operation that automatically switches to a standby network connection if the primary network fails or if it is shut down for servicing or other reasons. For example, if your Internet cable is accidentally cut in two by a backhoe down the street, or if your credit card processing comes to an abrupt halt, this is something your organization cannot afford or tolerate.

There is a solution. Wireless failover connectivity lets your business communications processes immediately switch from a disrupted wired connection to an always-on, low-cost standby network connection. In fact, the Digi SureLink™ platform offers a dual-SIM capability, so that if your router cannot communicate with the primary wireless network, the second SIM card will automatically establish and maintain a connection with the backup wireless network – which allows you to keep your wired and wireless network connectivity – and your staff and operations up and running.
