What is High Availability Network Access? • Multiple connections/routes from your network to the Internet over varied backbones. If a single connection fails, traffic automatically is moved to the functioning connection(s) without any disruption in service. • Multiple paths + Multiple ISP’s = Maximum Redundancy

R. O. I. and the Cost of Downtime • Meantime to repair for most

R. O. I. and the Cost of Downtime • Meantime to repair for most providers on a failed circuit is between 3 -8 hours. CPE repair times are much higher. • One in four companies have experienced a network failure. The median length of downtime was 8 hours. 24% of companies’ systems were down for over 24 hours. • 64% of companies do not have disaster recovery plans for their WAN. Source: Comdisco/Bell South/Oracle Vulnerability Study • Network downtimes (LAN/WAN) among large companies cost $32. 5 million per year in lost productivity and revenue. • WANs fail or degrade on average 7. 1 hours per month Source: Infonetics Research • The average Corporation has the potential to lose $7. 8 million per year in WAN downtime.
