Businesses are always “switched on” these days and, with connectivity playing a large part in day to day operations, there isn’t really a business process which doesn’t rely on being connected all of the time. Generally, the typical forms of connectivity, such as ADSL or FTTC, or Ethernet (for larger sites) offer business grade broadband. However, one thing that these types of connections have in common, is that the last mile usually ends up at the local telephone exchange, the same as a standard public telephone line.
But if the exchange encounters a fault; flooding, power issue, or anything that interrupts services originating from that exchange, then it will affect even the back-up service. Not exactly offering security for your business. This is where 3G/4G backup connectivity comes into a world of its own!
