Las Vegas, Nevada – (The Hosting News) – March 13, 2008 – Web host and national provider of integrated voice and data communications firm subsidiary, Covad Wireless, recently presented and launched a new service, at the Spring 2008 Channel Partners Conference and Expo.
David McMorrow, General Manager of Covad Wireless noted, ”Covad Wireless is very proud to introduce this enterprise-class, business continuity service, which is enabled by our unique status as California’s largest fixed wireless broadband provider. Businesses that previously had costly or limited backup options can now have peace of mind by choosing Covad’s affordable, reliable, business-class service.”
Covad’s Business Continuity Service was developed to combine enterprise-class wireless broadband connection, with backup DSL service.
Covad showcased the expansion of its portfolio of business continuity solutions, by combining fixed broadband wireless Super-T with Backup DSL service. This service provides business customers in California with a powerful alternative to standalone cable, DSL or T1 services, by including a backup connection to help ensure continuation of service in the event of a manmade or natural disaster.
Covad Wireless Super-T with Backup DSL service combines the performance of the Covad Wireless Super-T with the added reliability of Covad’s DSL service to create an integrated, redundant solution that enables businesses to keep critical broadband operable in the case of an outage of the wireless service. Covad Wireless Super-T with Backup DSL provides a single-source solution for fully-managed, redundant and path diverse access. Backup DSL, sold as an upgrade option for the Super-T product, is available in download speeds of up to 3.0 Mbps. Covad Wireless business continuity solutions also include a Super T with Backup T1, which is available in speeds of 1.5, 3.0, 4.5 and 6.0 Mbps. Super-T with Backup DSL or T1 provides automatic fail-over, usually in under 60 seconds, should the active circuit fail. The Backup options are available in most California locations where Super-T service is available.
The Tech Museum of Innovation, located in San Jose, California, has implemented Covad Wireless business continuity service to ensure that its operations are capable of withstanding unforeseen outages to provide a consistent and enjoyable experience for its visitors. The museum, which focuses on innovations in technology, has 132,000 square feet of exhibition space devoted to innovation, the Internet, and exploration.
Terry Boyle, Chief Operating Officer of The Tech Museum of Innovation noted, ”We are very satisfied with our choice of Covad Wireless to power the museum’s broadband operations. This fully redundant service, provided by a company with a long history of serving businesses in our community, enables us to operate with confidence, and fulfill the museum’s pioneering spirit and tradition of innovation.”
