Global Capacity Launches Wireless Backup Services for Business Continuity

Company Leverages Nationwide 4G LTE Wireless Coverage

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2016) - Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, announces the availability of its Wireless Backup with managed failover service across a nationwide 4G LTE wireless footprint. Global Capacity's Wireless Backup service provides customers with cost-effective, redundant backup with managed failover for its Internet access services to ensure that customers' critical revenue-generating business operations are maintained in the event of a primary service disruption.

This new service is now available to customers that use Global Capacity for their primary access services. The fully automated service leverages managed Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) that enables Global Capacity to actively monitor the primary data network connection; to instantly detect the need for a backup service and initiate failover; and then failback to the primary once service is restored.

"In today's economy, businesses cannot afford to halt operations because employees are unable to communicate or process transactions. Businesses require a continuity plan that includes a resilient connection to access data, process transactions and serve customers," says Pat Hannon, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity. "With the Wireless Backup option, Global Capacity's customers can rest assured that they have a cost-effective, resilient connectivity service with failover and the ability to have applications continue to perform in the event of an outage. It's instant, secure and seamless."

Global Capacity has added 4G wireless connectivity to its One Marketplace™ platform to provide nationwide coverage at competitive rates. The optional Wireless Backup service provides businesses with an affordable, high-speed connectivity option in locations that would otherwise require more expensive T1 backup services. Global Capacity customers can now leverage the new 4G LTE service as backup for their Ethernet, T1 or DSL connections. The 4G LTE wireless broadband access delivers asymmetric services with up to 10 Mbps download speeds providing real-time responsiveness to support videos and large file transactions.
