Disaster Recovery To Keep Your Business Up and Running.

Digital Transformation Requires Agility And Flexibility

When your business commits to digital transformation, ensure that your network can keep up. Network redundancy and failover should always be a part of your network planning. Digital transformation should also factor for flexibility, agility and speed of service delivery.

Wireless (RF), 5G, IoT (Internet of Things) and Cloud Computing network technologies are changing the landscape, including being accessible for everyone.

Network Redundancy Failover Disaster Readiness

We feature internet connections that are “Carrier Grade” which means reliability, quality of service, service level guarantees and more. However, due to acts of God, weather related type catastrophes, and more, your primary internet connection can fail. We recommend a network redundancy / failover solution that has the ability to seamlessly and automatically switch to function as a reliable backup system.

What Can Disaster Readiness Do For Your Business?

Minimize The Risks.

The goal of network redundancy and failover is to minimize the risk of a single point of failure disrupting the entire network. Redundancy and failover is critical for maintaining network operations in the face of network failures, glitches, or other unforeseen events.

Having a plan can cost far less than no plan at all.

Effective Network Redundancy Requires a Holistic Approach.

When considering the various layers of the network stack and the specific needs of an organization, we need to assess system properties as a whole, as well as systems apart from the properties of their components.

With high-availability and fault-tolerant systems, you can ensure that critical services remain accessible even in the face of disruptions.

The specific redundancy measures employed can be unique to each organization that we work with.

The effectiveness depends on the requirements of the network, the criticality of its services, and the available resources.

One size does not fit all and the initial process is simple.

As industry professionals, we will research actual infrastructure information that is not available to the public.

Fiber Access Is Easy For Genxtra Communications To Confirm

Here are some basic options that we will discuss. There are many more options to consider, hence this is a partial list.

Power Redundancy:

  • Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): A UPS provides backup power to mission critical equipment in the event of a power outage.
  • Power Generators: Larger corporations use generators to ensure continuous power in case of prolonged outages.

Network Topology Redundancy:

  • Mesh Topology: When you create multiple paths for data to travel, connecting each network device to every other device is simple. This topology does provide high redundancy, however, it can be expensive to implement.

Failover Systems:

  • Automatic Failover: Automatic failover systems detect network failure and automatically switch to a redundant component or path. This can be applied to various network devices, such as network routers, switches, and servers.

Network Virtualization:

  • Virtual LANs (VLANs): VLAN’s create separate broadcast domains which reduces the impact of a failure (in one part of the network) on the entire solution. Larger corporations often separate voice and data needs with VLAN’s.
  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and HSRP (Hot Standby Router Protocol): Protocols that allow for automatic assignment of an IP address to a backup router in case the primary router fails.

Redundant Internet Connections:

  • Multiple ISPs: Connecting to the internet through multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs) ensures internet connectivity in the event your primary connection experiences downtime.
  • BGP Routing: With Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) you can dynamically route traffic over the most efficient and available paths.

Wireless Redundancy:

  • Wireless Mesh Networks: Creating a wireless mesh to interconnect devices, provides redundancy and flexibility in case of link failures.
  • Multiple Frequency Bands: Utilizing multiple frequency bands for wireless communication to reduce interference and improve reliability and redundancy.

We will explain everything included and what has to be done. Just like the rest of our modern business solutions, our goal is a well thought out, carefully planned, fast and stress-free experience.

GenXtra Communications goes the eXtra step to keep things simple, easy to understand, more accessible and efficient for all.

Network Redundancy and Failover Are Key Components

Network redundancy and Failover are key components of high-availability and fault-tolerant systems, ensuring that critical services remain accessible even in the face of disruptions. The specific redundancy measures employed depend on the requirements of the network, the criticality of its services, and the available resources.
