www.rockproducts.com ROCK products • September 2017 • 29 Assurance solution for all of its available remote sites. Cloud Assurance provides a primary and back-up network connection, which, in this case, was internet. "We utilize two pieces of equipment to terminate the two services, and layer our 24/7/365 NOC monitoring on top to manage it all in the case of an outage, which we monitor to isolate the issue and fix," the company said. Also important to note, was the improve- ment in responsiveness and ease of doing business. "We were able to provide a simple pricing plan with timely responses and a straight-forward agreement in a few days, which Alleyton appreciated after doing years of business with other major pro- viders that have slow responses and even slower processes," Boundless Telecom said. The migration phase of the primary net- work went very smoothly, with all sites migrated with network back-ups installed at all sites in less than three months. Network downtime at the initial remote site, then several additional remote sites, was largely removed thanks to a 4G net- work that uses Cradlepoint equipment and Cloud Assurance, and is covered by Bound- less Telecom's 24/7/365 NOC monitoring, ensuring that Alleyton Resources' remote network sites remain up and running. "Business owners, CTOs and IT manag- ers are discovering that 4G/LTE, whether implemented as primary or backup service, provides the reliable solution they've been looking for, and its uptime benefits reduce the risks that threaten their businesses everyday," according to Boundless Telecom. Couple the mitigation of downtime risks with the relatively low cost of 4G/LTE service, and small- to medium-sized busi- nesses as well as enterprises can enjoy secure, uninterrupted connectivity even when nature (or humans) wreak havoc on other networks.
