Small and medium-sized businesses can now get Verizon Internet access coupled with automatic wireless broadband backup, which routes business traffic to the Verizon Wireless 3G EV-DO broadband wireless network in the event of a service disruption.
The new solution, which is immediately available nationwide, is ideal for businesses that have highly distributed locations and primarily use IDA for outbound critical traffic, Web research or point-of-sale transactions.
The solution features two linked ADTRAN NetVanta 3200 routers – one connected to the primary T1 access source and the other featuring a 3G wireless Network Interface Module designed for use with the Verizon Wireless network. This dual-unit approach provides the flexibility to place the 3G NIM-equipped router wherever cellular coverage is strongest. The IDA circuit and Internet traffic are actively monitored so that the wireless link is activated only as needed.
