Resilient business connectivity for the South East

These days, most businesses are utterly dependent on an internet connection for even their most basic operations. Which means that a network fault or outage can bring work grinding to a halt and start losses spiralling. To protect their customers amid this new reality, leading Waterford IT company, Radius Technologies partnered with telecommunications company, Ripplecom, to harness the power of Orion. Orion is a clever, compact and cost-effective autofailover that allows businesses to stay fully operational even amid a network outage.

How does Orion work?
At its simplest, each Orion is created with two network connections- one primary and one secondary. Usually, all online traffic uses the primary connection but when an outage strikes, all connected systems and devices switch quickly and smoothly to the secondary line.

 Business as usual
Thanks to Orion’s ingenious engineering, switched traffic continues in the same IP stream. This means credit card terminals and even ongoing VoIP telephone calls continue uninterrupted, resulting in a failover so seamless, your company will continue, business as usual, blissfully unaware that an outage has occurred. Radius and Ripplecom have worked together to bring Orion’s maximum uptime to clients like Christ Church Cathedral, Rapid Cabs and ReproMed.

 Take control of your connectivity
Service disruptions and network faults are outside of your control and impossible to predict but with an autofailover in place, business owners and managers can relax in the peace of mind that, when disruption does occur, your company will stay securely connected and fully operational.
