NetFortris Bi-Directional Failover is a great alternative for businesses with traditional circuit failover designs. With traditional circuit backup, companies often pay high costs for inactive circuits. With Bi-Directional Failover, both circuits are utilized to support business infrastructure communication needs. If one of the circuits were to go down, NetFortris intelligently routes traffic to the remaining circuit. Bi-Directional Failover is a great option for businesses who require circuit and cost efficiency, while protecting the needs of your critical applications.
Take advantage of Bi-Directional Failover to:
- Ensure availability
- Control costs
- Maximize the use of bandwidth for optimal load balancing between circuits
How it works.
The NetFortris Bi-Directional Failover consists of two active circuits, each circuit running/supporting specific traffic or applications as the primary. If one circuit loses connectivity, traffic from the down circuit will automatically route to the remaining circuit, providing continuous business operation. Our intelligent routing schema can prioritize traffic on the remaining circuit, to ensure support for your business critical applications. For example, if voice traffic is more important than streaming video, then all voice traffic will be prioritized while video traffic is throttled down. When your second circuit is restored, data traffic will resume to their original paths.
