Reliable

 

Our SD WAN Bonded Internet allows customers to create a highly reliable network using multiple access connections.

Leased-line reliability is finally available at regular broadband prices

Our SD Network and Bonded Internet combines Internet links to give you assurance that your Internet connection will be available when you need it, at a price you can afford. Get a faster, secure and reliable ISP at 60% to 75% cost of a lease/dedicated circuit alternative.

Unstoppable Reliability

Internet access is to your business as oxygen is to your body: you notice as soon as the supply is interrupted, even if it’s for just a few seconds. Your connection to the online world is key to your success. Get 99% uptime which in some cases is even better than the high 90’s offered by lease/dedicated circuits.  99.999% Reliability Without the Cost. Because the links are combined together into a single SD-WAN, each link you add increases its reliability. Diverse connection technologies from diverse ISPs act as an MPLS supplement, providing connectivity resilience at a fraction of what it would cost using traditional WAN alone.

Instant failover for both outbound and inbound traffic

Our SD Network and Bonded Internet provides the reliability you need. If one of your circuit fails, it is removed from the network immediately with no dropped VoIP calls or data sessions. You only lose the speed of the failed line. You can even eliminate the possibility of downtime cause by an ISP-wide outage by using connections from multiple ISPs.

No IP or DNS changes on failover

Failover is completely transparent. Unlike load balancing services, a line failure doesn’t cause any DNS record changes and has no risk of stale DNS caches causing an ongoing outage for inbound traffic.

No dropped sessions

Our SD WAN and Bonded Internet detects a failed connection almost instantly- within 0.3 seconds- and removes it from the bond. Your VoIP calls don’t drop, your SaaS office sessions aren’t interrupted, your backups stay current, you aren’t logged out of your SSL banking sessions. The only change is a reduction in bandwidth equal to the speed of the failed connection. Since you can use lines from two or more ISPs, you can even eliminate the possibility of downtime caused by an ISP-wide outage. This allows a our SD Network and Bonded Internet connection to match and even exceed the reliability of a traditional leased line.

When a connection is restored, it is added back to the bond within 0.1 seconds.

Completely transparent failover

Unlike load balancing services, a line failure doesn’t cause any outbound or inbound sessions to drop. It doesn’t trigger any DNS changes and has no risk of stale DNS caches causing an ongoing outage for inbound traffic. Your services continue to run from the same IP address.

Backup for your backups

Our SD Network and Bonded Internet also supports a single dedicated failover connection, used only when all the other connections have failed. This is useful to have, for example, a 4G cellular connection as a backup but to avoid its usage-based charges under normal circumstances.

Rugged hardware

Don’t worry about your bonding appliance hardware, either. We use enterprise-class network appliances using widely-deployed, well-tested components. And although it’s powerful, it has very few moving parts at risk of failing.

Count On 100% Uptime with Automatic Failover.

Automatic Failover keeps your network up and running by continually checking the health of all connected links and routing traffic around inactive or intermittent connections. You can even use our software to define Automatic Failover’s behavior, specifying conditional or dedicated backup links that dynamically respond to network status.
