2019 will be the year businesses’ over-reliance on the network and the connectivity it delivers will come to a head, particularly for small companies. As more businesses transition everything to the cloud, their reliance on the network always being available increases. Just one example is the increasing move from cash to card-based transactions and contactless payment in places like coffee shops and boutiques. If there is no backup in place for their connectivity, an outage could stop a business dead as many customers no longer have cash on them. Thankfully, there are solutions to this problem, like SD-WAN, which delivers enterprise-grade connectivity with seamless backups across 4G. Woe betide companies that don’t think carefully about their network connectivity.
