Satellite offers simple internet back-up plan
SATELLITE OFFERS SIMPLE INTERNET BACK-UP PLAN
In the wake of Auckland’s mass power outage, businesses worried about losing vital internet access are being advised there is an easy solution – a back-up satellite connection.
Internet access is crucial for most businesses and, depending on the company, an outage can cost thousands of dollars, if not more, per day.
Over the weekend 85,000 Auckland homes and businesses were without power when Transpower’s Penrose substation was damaged by fire. Additionally, many of these businesses also lost their internet connection, some permanently when the fibre connection to their building was destroyed.
While it is common for office buildings to have backup generators in case of a power outage, it is much less common for businesses to have a backup for their internet connection that is not reliant on terrestrial infrastructure.
The solution is to have a backup Satellite Broadband connection that can be activated for the duration of the outage. Consisting of a satellite dish and modem, there is no need for a copper or fibre network.
Wireless Nation’s Satellite Broadband network is the leading network in the country providing a fast and reliable connection. This uses the Optus D2 Satellite, which provides broadband in a wide range of situations in Australia, from rural areas to emergency services during a disaster. Most commonly used to connect rural New Zealand, Wireless Nation’s Satellite Broadband solution has a wide range of applications to provide a fast and reliable internet connection to remote areas and places without access to a terrestrial fibre or copper network.
Depending on requirements, speeds of up to 30Mbps down are possible allowing businesses to operate at nearly full capacity. Wireless Nation has stock and installers on hand to connect businesses to its Satellite Broadband network as soon as required.
To get a Satellite Broadband connection installed at your business, contact Wireless Nation on 0800 101 143.
