Fault Tolerant Interoffice Connectivity ConsultingMost companies with more than one office have some type of IP-based interoffice communications method. Common connectivity solutions include legacy frame relay lines, private T1 circuits, managed VPN, private IP, and unmanaged Internet VPNs. Communications failures for these interoffice links can significantly downgrade  business productivity.

Loss of interoffice connectivity means that users in remote offices are cut-off from key central systems and can be left without the ability to perform even the most basic day-to-day functions required to carry out critical business transactions. As a result, customers are disappointed, orders are delayed, and the afflicted business pays for workers to wait for the network to come back online.

The vast majority of small business interoffice communications infrastructures have virtually no fault tolerance. A single downed communications line or a single router failure can bring vital business processes to a halt. All too often, single-point failures can take hours, and occasionally days, to repair. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE engineers have the knowledge and experience to design and implement sophisticated fault-tolerant architectures for interoffice connectivity. Progent's consultants are expert at fault-tolerant Cisco router configuration based on Interior Gateway Protocols including OSPF, or Open Shortest Path First, and EIGRP, or Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol.

The explosion of low-cost Internet connectivity options provides new opportunities to create affordable, truly fault-tolerant, fully redundant interoffice connections that seamlessly failover in the event of a single-point breakdown. In the past, the high cost of private T1 lines often exceeded reasonable cost/risk assessments for small businesses. But with the diverse selection of low-cost DSL, cable modem, and wireless ISP connections now available, companies can craft cost-effective solutions that offer protection from single points of failure. By utilizing the advanced fault-tolerant features available in Cisco's IOS operating system, critical failures can be made invisible to users. With proper alert mechanisms, in-house IT resources or outside consultants can work efficiently to restore primary communications links without working under the intense pressure associated with crippling outages.

The business case for implementing fault-tolerant interoffice connectivity has never been more compelling. Low-cost DSL links can be configured as a backup to expensive T1 private lines for as little as 1/20th of the monthly operating cost of the primary link. The availability of business-class wireless links makes it possible to create a fault-tolerant communications architecture that completely eliminates the risk of rare but debilitating wired network failures, such as fiber cuts caused by construction work, or traffic accidents that take down utility poles or telephone wiring junction boxes. These solutions are affordably priced and offer acceptable performance in failover situations.
