FatPipe Addresses the Need for Internet Redundancy and Business Continuity After Internet Service Fails Across Australia

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Feb 23, 2012) - Millions of Australians lost Internet connectivity for nearly an hour on Thursday, when Telstra's Internet services failed due to router hardware failure. ISP Dodo stated, "...a minor hardware failure on one of the routers... has caused some big issues between ourselves and Telstra and had a flow on effect to others which it absolutely shouldn't have," said Dodo CEO, Larry Kestelman. Fixed-line and mobile Internet connections were affected, as well as 3 million BigPond mail, and Next G mobile services customers.

FatPipe Networks™, the inventor and multiple patents holder of Wide Area Network (WAN) redundancy, security, and optimization products, specializes in providing solutions that transcend Internet and other Wide Area Network (WAN) failures to maintain business continuity. FatPipe products aggregate multiple data lines of any speed and combination (DSL, Cable, E1, DS3, 3/4G, satellite, MPLS, etc.) from multiple ISPs to achieve the highest level of Internet/WAN resiliency and redundancy. FatPipe automatically, intelligently and seamlessly fails over lines and sessions when ISPs, physical lines or components unexpectedly fail, without BGP. FatPipe also increases bandwidth for end users by aggregating multiple lines of similar or disparate speeds, as well as higher levels of security with its patented SmartDNS and MPSec technologies.

"Businesses cannot afford to lose their Internet connectivity due to intermittent and unpredictable ISP failures," said CEO of FatPipe Networks, Ragula Bhaskar, Ph.D. "Line failure can cost companies from $4500 - $400,000 an hour depending on the business vertical. Customers who implement FatPipe enjoy automatic failover. If one line -- such as Telstra -- goes down, the alternate ISP will continue to failover the traffic and failover VPN, VoIP and Thin Client without losing connectivity or sessions."

Email, cloud computing, CRM, and remote access computing are all popular web-based tools that need to be up at all times as well as secure.

FatPipe is also the only company that provides multiline WAN Optimization, which increases effective bandwidth between 4 - 10 times by accelerating traffic over multiple lines using compression, caching, Quality of Service (QoS), and deduplication techniques. FatPipe's Internet redundancy, optimization, and security technologies create highly resilient, secure and efficient networks for its customers.
