Batelco launches LTE backup solution

Bahrain's Batelco has launched a backup service over its LTE network for its business customers.

The LTE backup solution will provide business customers with backup connectivity for Datacom services such as MPLS, Inet Dedicated and GMPLS (Global MPLS).

The service also complements Batelco's range of backup options such as ISDN, DSL, MPLS.

The backup solution ensures business continuity in the rare case of a main link failure. The service is provided via an LTE router meaning it is quick and easy to install at a low cost. In the unusual case of degradation of the main copper or fibre link, the backup service will automatically come into operation, serving the organisation's needs until the main connection is restored.

Adel Daylami, general manager of Batelco Enterprise, said: "Businesses, specifically the banking sector, operate in a very competitive environment. It is therefore crucial for any business to be able to meet the needs of its clients 24/7 and Batelco is committed to helping their business customers meet their obligations."
