There are a number of situations that can cause your network to go down. While some causes may have safeguards to protect against an outage, the reality is that things are often out of your control. Typically, connection failure causes can be grouped into three categories: 1) natural disasters, 2) human errors and technology failures, 3) cyber attacks. Regardless of the cause, modern businesses should implement a backup failover plan to ensure the quickest recovery time possible during a catastrophic event and guarantee maximum uptime.

Case Study: A Real-Life Example of 4G Failover Services in Action

With the help of EnableIP, a regional bank in Texas with 50 mortgage locations and 50 banking locations implemented 4G/LTE as a backup network solution for the mortgage locations of the business. In doing so, they were able to reduce downtime from 0.5% to .01%. While that may not sound like a significant decrease, let’s take a look at how this translates across the multiple locations within the company’s operation.

An uptime rate of 99.5% (0.5% downtime) translates into 3.6 hours of downtime during business hours per site each month, resulting in 14.4 hours of business downtime annually. Since the client has 50 locations within the mortgage portion of company operations, the multiplication of downtime rates across additional sites means 60 hours of downtime every month, resulting in 720 business hours lost due to network downtime every year.

Consider the decrease from 0.5% to 0.1% downtime, and you can clearly see the massive effect this has on the potential loss for the client. 4G/LTE as a backup solution reduces annual downtime for each site from 14.4 hours to just 17.52 minutes.

50 Sites99.5% Uptime99.99% Uptime
Work hours down/month60 hours1.21 hours
Work hours down/year720 hours14.6 hours

Using Gartner’s estimated downtime costs of $300,000 per hour, we can estimate that EnableIP’s 4G/LTE solution cut this business’s downtime costs from $4.32 million per year to $90,000 per year – an estimated annual savings of $4.23 million.

In this case, implementing the 4G/LTE backup solution more than paid for itself.

In the case of this particular client, EnableIP was able to provide a significant reduction in downtime, delivering massive saving to the mortgage side of the company each year. As a result, this prompted the client to look at deploying a 4G/LTE backup solution for the banking side of the business, saving them even more.

What is Network Downtime Really Costing You?

IHS, Inc.’s 2015 research found that the cost of Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) downtime ranges from nearly $1 million per year for a typical mid-size company to over $60 million per year for a large enterprise. The report explains that downtime losses include:

  • Decreased employee productivity
  • Revenue losses across multiple departments
  • Costs to fix the issue(s) that caused the outage

In many cases, the costs can vary depending on the number of locations affected by the outage and the length of time it takes to resolve the issue. Additional data from Gartner estimates that IT downtimes for enterprises costs an average of $5,600 per minute or $300,000 every hour.

There are a number of factors that experts take into consideration when calculating the average costs of network downtime:

  • Gross revenue
  • Number of employees
  • Average number of hours of downtime/outage
  • Number of locations
  • Outages per month
  • Number of IT employees impacted
  • Average salaries of employees

Keep in mind that this is just an average and exact numbers vary across different businesses, industries and scenarios. Instead of relying on averages, why not calculate the outage cost as it directly relates to your specific organization?

Is Adding More Equipment and Redundant Services Justified?

Millions of businesses today rely on the Internet to conduct business, communicate with vendors and customers, process credit card payments, and run mission-critical cloud-based applications. With all of these activities playing a vital role in the success and profitability of the company, non-stop availability is absolutely essential to ensure businesses don’t suffer significant financial losses due to network downtime.

Businesses solely relying on DSL cable or broadband Internet service risk revenue loss, decreased productivity, and even a damaged reputation, which could ultimately result in losing valuable customers. With standard availability through DSL cable or broadband at 99.5% on a good day, the risk of downtime isn’t so much a question of if a business will experience a service outage with these Internet options, but more a question of when. Unfortunately, for many businesses the option of adding more equipment or redundant service simply doesn’t justify the increased costs.

Enter 4G backup internet. Many business owners, CTOs, and IT managers are now discovering that 4G/LTE, whether implemented as primary or wireless backup service, provides the reliable solution they’ve been looking for, and its uptime benefits reduce the risks that threaten their businesses everyday.

Couple the mitigation of downtime risks with the relatively low cost of 4G/LTE service, and small- to medium-sized businesses, as well as large-scale enterprises, can enjoy secure, uninterrupted connectivity even when nature (or humans) wreak havoc on other networks.
