Back-up

If you are a retail business, a business with remote offices, or a business that simply want to ensure connectivity for critical segments of your network, Contour can provide a cellular back-up solution that guarantees you will have connectivity when your business needs it and, save a catastrophic natural disaster, that you will never be down for more than a few minutes.

In order to have truly redundant network connectivity, you need two or more disparate networks that will fail-over automatically if you lose your primary connection. And, you need to ensure that secondary connections are at least as secure as your primary connection.

With any of Contour’s products, you can ensure high availability of your network. For businesses that use DSL, Cable, or T-1 as their primary connection, you can use any of Contour’s 1-Net or MultiNet solutions to protect against a severed communication line or a carrier network outage, whether it is local, regional, or nationwide.

Multiple configuration options include:

- 1-Net as a back-up to a DSL or Cable primary. Your 1-Net router can sit in-line with your DSL or Cable router and control the fail-over, or the 1-Net router can be invoked by your primary router. In either case, your 1-Net router is connected to Contour’s cellular network all the time, and can be used to replace failed connectivity instantly, when you need it. And, if you choose a 1-Net router with Arxceo installed, you get an award-winning IPS (Intrusion Prevention Solution) that will protect your LAN completely.

- Contour MultiNet with HA (High Availability) as either a back-up to Cable/DSL/T-1, or as a standalone primary and back-up. For businesses that want extraordinary redundancy, the Contour HA product can sit in-line with your DSL or Cable router and control the fail-over, or the 1-Net router can be invoked by your primary router. In either case, you should see your connectivity downtime reduced to a few minutes per year. This configuration also comes with the Arxceo option, which means your LAN can be completely secure from external threats.

- Contour MultiNet with AP (Application Persistence) as a back-up to Cable/DSL/T-1, or as a standalone primary and back-up. This can be configured the same as either 1-Net or Contour HA. For businesses that are transaction heavy or need to ensure that an online application can proceed uninterrupted in the case of a network failure, you should consider this configuration.

If your business has needs that are not covered by one of these options, please Contact Us, and we will be happy to discuss a solution for you.
