The new COSMOTE Internet Backup service provides a backup connection to the Internet through 4G mobile network, in case of disconnection or interruption of the ADSL/VDSL fixed connection.
COSMOTE Internet Backup service is a great tool for business subscribers that need daily Internet access without interruptions, such as doctors who write prescriptions, businesses that use Cloud services, managing / handling files on line, use electronic invoicing or even for simple but important services like e-mail. The service reduces any risk of Internet disconnections, at a low cost, and provides necessary internet and web access.
In case of Internet connection interruption on the fixed network due to any failure, traffic is automatically routed through the mobile network. Once the failure is restored, traffic is automatically rerouted back to the fixed network.
Each time the traffic is routed through the Internet Backup network, SMS notifications are sent to the customer’s contact mobile phone.
