Network Redundancy

Network redundancy is a process that adds extra network devices, equipment, and communication lines to maintain connectivity if the main pathway or a portion/link goes down.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Network Redundancy

Businesses implement network redundancy to ensure that their network is always available. Even during a device or path failure, an alternative path can keep a network accessible. It's worth noting that network redundancy may not protect against network outages caused by failed hardware or fiber cuts.
