Reliable network connectivity is a fundamental requirement for digital business. It’s a matter of money — when the network goes down, sales and critical processes grind to a halt. And unlike data center and campus networks that have failover protection, remote locations such as construction sites, drilling rigs and convention center booths are almost always dependent on a single connection. This Report examines ways partners can help boost remote site availability with an independent, redundant circuit using wireless LTE.
The most common methods for integrating LTE into a customer WAN, using a plug-in module, have several options.
LTE connectivity can be added to fixed configuration routers or UTM appliances with USB modems or cellular gateways.
Prime considerations in using LTE as a ROBO backup circuit are availability of coverage and costs due to data caps.
Kurt Marko is an IT industry analyst, consultant and regular contributor to a number of technology publications, pursuing his passion for communications after a varied career that has spanned virtually the entire high-tech food chain from chips to systems. Upon graduating from Stanford University with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering, Marko spent several years as a semiconductor device physicist, doing process design, modeling and testing. He then joined AT&T Bell Laboratories as a memory chip designer and CAD and simulation developer. Moving to Hewlett-Packard, he started in the laser printer R&D lab doing electrophotography development, for which he earned a patent, but his love of computers eventually led him to join HP’s nascent technical IT group. Marko spent 15 years as an IT engineer and was a lead architect for several enterprisewide infrastructure projects at HP, including the Windows domain infrastructure, remote access service, Exchange email infrastructure and managed Web services.
