Register for this webinar to learn how the accelerated rollout of 5G coupled with the release of true 5G-embedded enterprise class intelligent Cradlepoint routers has made wireless business continuity and failover a viable reality.


In the past 18 months the 5G landscape in Australia has changed unrecognisably. The accelerated rollout of the network coupled with the release of true 5G embedded enterprise class intelligent Cradlepoint routers has made 5G a viable technology for business continuity and failover strategies.

What will be covered in this webinar?

Traditional wired WAN outages are simply a fact of life whether they are caused by natural or man-made disasters, a power outage, configuration error, or ancient and unreliable fixed networks. Having a second wired link for failover - often laying along the same trench - is self-defeating in many instances.

As businesses reinvent the way they work and increasingly use cloud-based applications, there is a compelling case for turning to Wireless WAN technology as a failover solution.

Early Australian adopters already have 5G failover in-Situ

MobileCorp is working with a number of Australian enterprises who have already embraced Cradlepoint's wireless WAN solutions for failover and also for primary links,

"We always knew this was coming. It was only a matter of time before mobile connectivity became a viable failover option for enterprise business and we are on the cusp of real uptake.

"5G for failover is a use case which is applicable to every industry vertical and organisations large and small. 

"The benefits are also considerable led by protecting against downtime, adding link diversity, accommodating traffic spikes, constructing resilient VPNs, and troubleshooting remotely with out of band management,

Why use wireless instead of a second wired link for failover?

Many organisations introduce failover capabilities by adding a second wired link to an existing branch router. 
 
While this is a good start, it still leaves the router and the wired links as potential weak points. Often the second wired link is using the same physical pathway to the location and exposed to the same risk scenario as the primary link.
 
For a higher level of resilience and continuity, two routers, each with a different type of WAN connection is the way to go.
 
LTE and 5G wireless data links add both backup and diversity to the network,  reducing any single point of failure.
