Many organizations don’t consider how secure, managed connectivity plays such a key role in today’s business environment. When I speak with businesses leaders - from both large enterprises and innovative start-ups - I find that wireless failover capability hasn’t always been considered in their business continuity plan, yet it can sometimes make the difference between success and failure.
Imagine this scenario: A restaurant/pub is gearing up for a major event, such as a big playoff game. Every detail has been executed seamlessly, from the promotions to staffing and inventory. The customers arrive in masses and the game is going full throttle – What could possibly go wrong? Then, the fixed-line Internet connectivity drops out and the restaurant is unable to process credit cards. With the restaurant unable to provide services, patrons leave at halftime and head to a competitor’s location to enjoy the game. Revenue is lost and the business’s reputation is damaged.
