When Seconds Count: Ensuring Business Continuity with 4G Failover

In today’s era of distributed enterprises, the average national or international organization relies on a complex network that involves hundreds of regional locations, each connected to headquarters via a local Internet connection. Local online access lets retail chains such as restaurants and stores, process sales and payment transactions, and let branches such as banks and travel agents, process secure service transactions. Local access also makes it easier to manage unmanned locations, such as ATMs and vending machines.

Separating the gateway from the router is a better option, for several reasons.
