4G/LTE Disaster Recovery Solution Assures No Downtime During Network Failure

SAN ANTONIO, TX., August 15, 2017 – Globalgig announced today that it had received orders for its 4G/LTE wireless backup service solution from two major industrial companies. One company, part of a global Fortune 1000 conglomerate, is a leading manufacturer of refrigeration equipment. The other company is a division of a worldwide leader in fluid handling and lubricants. The solution calls for high-speed Cradlepoint routers with advanced failover capability to LTE to be assimilated into the fabric of the manufacturing company’s enterprise networks. By adopting the Globalgig solution, the companies are ensuring continued connectivity even when their primary fixed line network goes down.

Ernest Cunningham, CEO of Globalgig remarked,

“We are very pleased that these two diverse Fortune 1000 manufacturing companies have chosen the Globalgig solution for their wireless network failover. One thing they have in common is that if their land based network fails or goes down, they need to stay in business. Globalgig delivers that solution through our wireless primary and failover solution in 190 countries over both 3G and 4G/LTE.

Tony Puopolo, VP of North American Channel Sales, Cradlepoint, said,

“We are pleased to support Globalgig in their efforts to bring outstanding failover and primary wireless solutions to the market. Cradlepoint is the leader in cloud managed networking for industrial applications, and we’re excited that enterprises all over the world will benefit from the combination of Globalgig’s wireless network and Cradlepoint’s software-defined 4G/LTE technology.”

The solution is multi-carrier allowing, even more, diversity by failing over to not one but up to four LTE networks thereby providing a near foolproof approach to disaster recovery networking. More and more enterprises are adopting 4G/LTE into the fabric of their networks and Globalgig is in a position to help them do it quickly and efficiently.
