Internet Failover

What would happen if your Internet connection went down?

Your high-speed Internet connection is critical for conducting business and communicating with customers, suppliers, investors, and employees.  When it goes down, your business stops.

Many events can cause your network to go down, including natural disasters, cybersecurity attacks, or damage to a fiber-optic cable.  It is imperative that you invest in a backup circuit for your business so that your Internet connection never goes down.   This may seem expensive or complicated – but with Managed SD-WAN from TPx, it’s not.

Mix and match any type of transport – whether it’s provided by TPx or your local Internet or wireless provider – to securely and seamlessly fail over your Internet connection.   When your primary circuit goes down, our intelligent SD-WAN network will automatically route traffic to the secondary circuit.  And it’s cost effective: both circuits can be active, so you don’t have to pay for bandwidth you are not using; or you can choose low-cost 4G LTE for your must-have apps.

Failover Configuration Options

  • Two Circuits
  • Three Circuits
  • 4G LTE
  • Inbound Continuity

Two Circuits

In this setup, both connections are in active/active mode. That means that the Managed Services Router decides, for each traffic session, which path is the best path in that moment. You do not need to feel like you are paying for bandwidth you aren’t using.

Three Circuits

For added peace of mind, you can utilize three circuits — all active or one in standby mode — for the ultimate measure of connection certainty.

4G LTE

TPx is the first to offer SD-WAN over 4G LTE as a primary, secondary or redundant option to reduce or eliminate the need for wireline connectivity. In primary mode, all SD-WAN traffic is transported over the 4G network. In secondary mode, the 4G circuit is active but sharing throughput with a primary wired circuit. In failover mode, the 4G link is dormant until needed for automated failover of the primary circuit.

Inbound Continuity

This configuration provides static public IPs between the core network and your gateway to support inbound Internet failover for remote users and web traffic. Without this, inbound traffic is limited to one circuit – so if it goes down, external sources can’t reach your site or VPN.
