For all of you accetping credit cards and needing real-time authorization, guaranteeing that you have Internet access can be a challenge. In so many cases, ALL of your copper that provides you with connectivity is run on ONE SET of poles outside your store, HQ, or data center. If the pole is knocked down, even having DSL, a T1, and cable - ALL ON THAT SAME POLE - is of no help.
Red Box, Starbucks, American Apparel, and Blinds To Go all know how to do this.
No wired connection can deliver 100% uptime so the question isn't whether your business will lose connectivity to the Internet, the question is how to protect your organization from loss and disruption when it does happen.
With Cradlepoint WWAN failover solutions using 3G/4G/LTE, your organization can protect from these losses and mitigate risk to your brand.
When your wired Internet connectivity experiences a service disruption (in some areas this happens several times a month) your business is exposed to risks of lost revenue, productivity, and customer experience issues. Upgrading to a more robust wired connection such as T1 or T3 line is an option that comes with a significantly higher monthly cost, and it is still susceptible to outages and service disruptions such as construction related cable cuts, downed telephone lines, severe weather, etc.
And Cradlepoint provides PCI COmpliance in the device for the connections that allow it to be configured for maximum scurity!
