We are living in the digital age when all commerce moves at the speed of light across the Internet. Industries as
varied as automotive to digital books now rely on the Internet to make sales and serve customers. Because of that
reality, something called Business Continuity (BC) has emerged as a vital priority for business and industry in the
21st Century. Satellite Internet can be an integral part of a company’s BC
strategy. Often described as ‘just common sense, Business Continuity is all about taking responsibility for your
business and enabling it to stay on course whatever storms it is forced to weather. It is about “keeping calm and
carrying on.” BC is about building and improving resilience in your business; it’s about identifying your key
products and services and the most urgent activities that underpin them and then, once that ‘analysis’ is complete,
it is about devising plans and strategies that will enable you to continue your business operations and enable you
to recover quickly and effectively from any type disruption whatever its size or cause. It gives you a solid
framework to lean on in times of crisis and provides stability and security. In fact, embedding BC into your
business is proven to bring business benefits.

BC is defined as the capability of the organization to continue delivery of products or services at acceptable
predefined levels following a disruptive incident. That’s where satellite Internet comes in. While most companies
Internet connections are based on more traditional DSL, fiber or wireless networks, having a satellite Internet
backup means a company will never be “down.” When more traditional Internet connections are interrupted, satellite
Internet backups can be a godsend.

Here are five reasons why a company should have a satellite Internet backup system:

Reliability

If and when your main Internet solution fails, a backup satellite service can instinctively switch important Internet
traffic to a satellite connection at the same time assuming bandwidth to a company’s essential applications. In the
event of a line cut or other emergency, a company can keep doing business, processing sales and filling orders.

Speed

Satellite Internet performs like DSL and cable but also allows users to browse the Web, fax, make phone calls (using
VoIP) and stream video, to increase productivity and profitability of a business.

Affordability

Satellite Internet services continue to increase in market share and quality, making the service more affordable than
it has ever been. Now businesses ranging from small to multinational can protect themselves against business
interruptions with satellite Internet service.

Versatility

If your business operates in a remote area, communications can be a challenge. With satellite Internet, even the most
remote site can be linked to your network with reliable Internet service.

Mobility

Satellite Internet can
go anywhere. Companies that specialize in business-grade equipment offer mobile communications solutions that can be
mounted directly onto a vehicle to take the Internet to job sites. These systems are designed for rapid deployment
and are simple enough for untrained personnel to operate.

Remaining connected to the Internet is vital to success in today’s marketplace. If your business does not have a
dependable Internet connection in place, satellite Internet could
be the right option for your business.
