wib-news-smBOSTON [September 16, 2015] – Nitel, a leading nationwide managed telecom service provider, announced today at the Cloud Partners Convention and Expo in Boston that it has launched Wireless Internet Backup service.

The service functions as a business continuity solution for customers who already have a primary Internet connection.  In the event of an outage on the primary access circuit, traffic is automatically re-routed to a 4G LTE wireless connection.  Wireless Internet Backup will be sold as a value added service to Nitel’s dedicated Internet access and MPLS.

“Business customers are looking for cost-effective ways of designing their networks without sacrificing reliability,” said Nitel Vice President of Product Management Pat Herron.  “A wireless backup solution provides customers with a great business continuity solution that fits even the most constrained IT budgets.”

The service is available nationwide beginning today.  For more information, visit our web site.
