The average business will suffer from 15 hours of network downtime each year. It’s vitally important to have a business continuity strategy in place to protect revenue from POS systems, prevent operation stoppage and to maintain your cloud-based voice and data performance. Wireless broadband provides full WAN redundancy with path diversity – for a very reasonable cost. Opticom has access to pooled Wireless WAN (WWAN) backup solutions costing as little as $5/month per site.
Private mobile networking helps you manage your mobile workforce and also to keep those devices secure. A private network assigns all of your mobile devices a private IP address and funnels all traffic through a private cloud before it allows that traffic through to the carriers. Did you know that fully one third of all mobile traffic is YouTube and Facebook? A private network allows you to filter out or set thresholds on non-work related traffic to prevent data overages on your mobile network. In addition, private mobile networks are inherently secure in that the private IP addresses assigned to devices are not visible to the internet, so criminals can’t even see the devices. Plus, the private network acts as a firewall to screen out malware. Finally, if someone does attempt an attack, the private network filters out that traffic before it reaches the carrier networks, so that you’re not paying data usage charges for attackers.
Mobile Management services can give you a way to get a handle on costs as well as allowing you to outsource the hassle of day-to-day management of your mobile network. Mobile management starts with an audit and carrier optimization, so that you aren’t paying for data that you aren’t using. Mobile Management services also provide help desk services so that your staff doesn’t have to spend their time answering questions and fixing or replacing mobile devices. Additional special project services are also available, like creating kits for special accessories and managing device roll-outs.
