No matter where your business is located throughout the US, if you have cellular connectivity at that location, it’s very likely that we can provide managed, enterprise-class wireless connectivity to your site.

Managed Connectivity from Sierra Wireless is Connectivity-as-a Service that ensures that your central, remote, and temporary locations are connected to the network even if the fiber, T-1 or cable goes down or is delayed.

Why Use Managed Connectivity

Why Every Network Should Include Managed Connectivity

33% of businesses report outages monthly, and 92% of businesses will experience an outage at least quarterly. Depending on the size of the business, this could amount to hundreds or thousands of dollars per incident in lost productivity, lost sales and customer satisfaction. To estimate the cost of downtime for your business, click here to use our simple calculator.

Agile businesses go to where the business is to maximize sales, productivity and customer engagement. Adding managed wireless connectivity ensures that new locations open on time, even when permits and cable construction projects are delayed. Adding managed wireless connectivity allows businesses to respond to seasonal opportunities and special events without the need for build-out, capital investment for equipment, or long-term contracts.

The Need for Managed Wireless Solutions

Managed Connectivity is greater than the sum of the parts. Nearly every business has resorted to a backup solution or a temporary hotspot in the event of an emergency that's not secure, scalable or reliable, and it’s no way to run a business. Buying a gateway and signing a data plan contract isn’t much better unless you have IT resources to spare.
