PostPosted: Mon Oct 25, 2010 2:43 pm    Post subject: CradlePoint Failover Protection

How easily can CradlePoint Routers be used for Failover protection? Do I need a CradlePoint Router for this, OR can I get the CBA750?

I am looking to have a Cradlepoint failover after a cable modem goes down (which happens almost daily). Once the cable modem comes back up, I want the router to fail back over to cable.

I know that I can get 3G or 4G for the mobile broadband wireless, not really worried about that piece, just the hardware that is needed to handle mobile broadband failover.

If reliability and up time are your primary concerns, you might be better off with our new Nexaira Business Class BC2 router. This router offers a failover time that's much faster than Cradlepoint routers and allows you access to real time statistics and SSH.

You can read our full review here - NexAira Business Class II (BC2) 3G/4G Router Hands-On Review

To answer your question, yes, the CBA750 (This is a Cradlepoint product) can be configured as a failover device. What exactly are you looking to do with the router as the CBA750 is designed for IP Passthrough.

Are you trying to integrate this into an existing firewall?

Just wanted to add that the Nexaira BC2 also offers IP Passthrough via ethernet/LAN or WiFi connectivity.
