Stargate's Failsafe service provides multiple types of internet connections to each customers site to ensure they do not lose internet access.
While the primary connection is in production, customers can also make use of the backup connection for some specific network traffic.
- Multiple internet connections
- Automatic failover
- Consistent Stargate static IPs
- Single point of service and billing
- Enhanced reliability
Failsafe provides insurance for last-mile connectivity issues. It extends the high availability of the Stargate core network to the customer's premises by providing multiple network connections to the customer network. The service will automatically fail over to the customer's backup connection once it senses the primary connection is down, typically within 10 seconds. No manual intervention is required from the customer or Stargate to switch over to the backup network connection and the customer's IP addresses remain the same.
Redundant connections can be a combination of fibre, T1, EoD, DSL, WiFi or cable connections.
