Automatic Failover to high-speed 4G LTE ensures uninterrupted availability for remote networks

The cost of network downtime has never been higher. Incidents resulting in million-dollar losses of business revenue and employee productivity due to a simple network fault are now common in organizations across many industries — including retail, banking, construction, and healthcare. With tight budgets and limited staff, network administrators, CTOs, and CIOs are seeking a network continuity solution that they can trust.Opengear Failover to Cellular™ provides continued Internet connectivity for remote LANs and equipment, over high-speed 4G LTE or 3G networks when the primary Internet link is unavailable. Cellular wireless offers both the speed to keep your network running smoothly, and the link diversity for true WAN resilience. Building on robust IP Passthrough technology, Opengear Failover to Cellular integrates easily into your existing installs or can be rapidly deployed for instant-on connectivity for new network turn-ups and mobile business locations like pop-up stores.


Combined with the unique SmartOOB™ out-of-band management capabilities built into all Opengear products, Failover to Cellular helps you to quickly troubleshoot and remediate network problems remotely, without interrupting critical business operations. Equip your remote network with Opengear and experience both a drop in frequency of network interruptions with Failover to Cellular, and drastic reduction of recovery time with SmartOOB to mitigate the risk and minimize the cost of downtime.

Failover to Cellular enables continuity of business operations when the primary Internet connection is down.
