We have a T1, a DSL Line and a cable modem in each building to assure that we can connect to the internet in case one fails. However during the latest power outage we also lost all of them and were cut off from the world.
I purchased a few aircards and we managed to retrieve email and do bare necessities on the internet but all considered it was a less than favorable approach as aircards had to be shared and for some reasons I couldn't get it to work nicely alongside my network.
Now I wonder - Is there a router out there or some kind of device which has a 3G/4G connection which I could enable on my network so that employees at least can retrieve emails and purchase orders etc...?
I had a few people come up to me and say - "You really should have looked into an alternative route in case such a thing happens" - And I'm kind of stumped. Who could have known that all lines go down at the same time? But then again...
