The Nextlink solution is designed to offer always-on network connectivity via broadband wireless links that let customers quickly transition impacted network traffic, the company said. Organizations can use the service to transition network traffic from affected areas on customer networks to the Nextlink Network Resiliency link; re-route network traffic from compromised network paths; isolate traffic to alleviate spikes and assist in handling overflow traffic or other anomalies; protect office sites or applications; and comply with existing and emerging regulatory directives requiring continuity plans.
The Nextlink Network Resiliency Services also offers alternative access over high-speed wireless links at speeds ranging from 10mbps to 155mbps.
Wireless offers a greater degree of physical diversity that many public companies and governments must provide under their (continuity of operations plans), said John Grady, the companys director of marketing. Now with the redundancy features theres an even greater argument for using wireless as a primary connection, particularly considering even in major markets most buildings arent fiber-connected.
