High Availability Networking

In today’s world both customers and employees expect connectivity to services, products and information anytime and anywhere. The unavailability of services or the inability to obtain information affects employee morale and the customer’s user experience. This has a significant impact on short and long term business and in a worst case scenario could mean an organisation goes out of business.

Hughes High Availability Connectivity Services

When a network fails, it impacts not only your business, but also your clients, business partners and customers as well. The reputation and financial impact of a connectivity failure to a business has huge implications to the future viability of the business. Customers have so many options today through technology enhancements and multiple connectivity and service options that if they find one service not working they will just go to another. The question is will they ever go back? In addition business partners that rely on the service that is being provided by the organisation will also be impacted by a WAN network failure.

Companies spend millions on applications that are critical to the operation of the business but without secure and reliable WAN network connectivity they are effectively useless.

Hughes is in a unique position as a technology and partner-independent company that can provide both terrestrial and satellite fully managed services to protect an organisation’s WAN connectivity and therefore the business and retention of end users.

Contact us to see what high availability services we can provide for you, including:

  • DSL Primary with DSL Backup

  • DSL Primary with 3G/4G Backup

  • DSL Primary with Satellite backup

  • 3G/4G Primary with Satellite Backup

  • Satellite Primary with 3G/4G Backup

  • Rapid Response

  • Data back-up

  • Bespoke to suit your business

DSL Primary with DSL Backup

In this deployment both links can be deployed with the same speeds so applications can seamlessly failover to the backup circuit in the event of a link failover.

For true diversity different service providers would be used for each DSL circuit as DSL circuits from the same service provider can use the same links and exchange.

DSL Primary with 3G/4G Backup

In this deployment the 3G/4G link will generally be at a lower speed than the DSL circuit. Hughes will work with you to ensure that business critical applications are given the priority and QoS they need over the backup 3G/4G circuit and work with you to define the right 3G/4G data volumes and coverage required for your business.

DSL Primary with Satellite Backup

In this deployment the satellite link will be at a lower speed than the DSL circuit so consideration needs to be given to how critical business applications are given priority over the backup satellite link. Hughes will work with you to ensure that business critical applications are given the priority and QoS they need over the backup satellite circuit.

The "value add" in this scenario is that the backup satellite link can be used for software backup or downloading of information using multicast whilst the primary link is operational without impacting the services on the primary link.

3G/4G Primary with Satellite Backup or Satellite Primary with 3G/4G Backup

In this deployment the speeds on either link can be comparable although satellite will generally be available at higher speeds. Hughes will work with you to ensure that business critical applications and delay sensitive applications are given the priority and QoS they need across both types of circuits.

The "value add" in this deployment is that it has a greater geographical reach where DSL circuits are not available.

Rapid Response

In times of a circuit failure or the delay in getting fixed line service to your premises when you have a new service to launch, Hughes Europe can provide a rapid response service designed around your specific needs. This can include a 3G/4G router or a satellite service dependent on the location of your premises.

Data Storage Business Continuity

In addition to our high availability WAN managed services Hughes Europe also works with Datto to provide a full business continuity data backup service.  The Datto service can also provide a level of protection against cyber threats and ransoming. Combined together this services provides a full business continuity service with redundant connectivity, hybrid cloud based backup, Image based backup, virtualisation plus many more features. You can be assured that your business remains functional no matter what network disaster occurs.
