FatPipe Addresses the Need for Internet Redundancy and Business Continuity After Internet Service Fails Across Australia
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, Feb 23, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Millions of Australians lost Internet connectivity for nearly an
hour on Thursday, when Telstra's Internet services failed due to
router hardware failure. ISP Dodo stated, "...a minor hardware
failure on one of the routers... has caused some big issues between
ourselves and Telstra and had a flow on effect to others which it
absolutely shouldn't have," said Dodo CEO, Larry Kestelman.
Fixed-line and mobile Internet connections were affected, as well as
3 million BigPond mail, and Next G mobile services customers.
FatPipe Networks(TM), the inventor and multiple patents holder of
Wide Area Network (WAN) redundancy, security, and optimization
products, specializes in providing solutions that transcend Internet
and other Wide Area Network (WAN) failures to maintain business
continuity. FatPipe products aggregate multiple data lines of any
speed and combination (DSL, Cable, E1, DS3, 3/4G, satellite, MPLS,
etc.) from multiple ISPs to achieve the highest level of Internet/WAN
resiliency and redundancy. FatPipe automatically, intelligently and
seamlessly fails over lines and sessions when ISPs, physical lines or
components unexpectedly fail, without BGP. FatPipe also increases
bandwidth for end users by aggregating multiple lines of similar or
disparate speeds, as well as higher levels of security with its
patented SmartDNS and MPSec technologies.
"Businesses cannot afford to lose their Internet connectivity due to
intermittent and unpredictable ISP failures," said CEO of FatPipe
Networks, Ragula Bhaskar, Ph.D. "Line failure can cost companies from
$4500 - $400,000 an hour depending on the business vertical.
Customers who implement FatPipe enjoy automatic failover. If one line
-- such as Telstra -- goes down, the alternate ISP will continue to
failover the traffic and failover VPN, VoIP and Thin Client without
losing connectivity or sessions."
Email, cloud computing, CRM, and remote access computing are all
popular web-based tools that need to be up at all times as well as
FatPipe is also the only company that provides multiline WAN
Optimization, which increases effective bandwidth between 4 - 10
times by accelerating traffic over multiple lines using compression,
caching, Quality of Service (QoS), and deduplication techniques.
FatPipe's Internet redundancy, optimization, and security
technologies create highly resilient, secure and efficient networks
for its customers.
