Irvine, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/24/2015 -- On July 8, 2015, a faulty router caused nearly two hours of grounded flights for United Airlines and led to ongoing delays in flights across the country throughout the day. A spokesperson for the airline blamed "degraded network connectivity." The Federal Aviation Administration imposed a ground stop to hold all flights until the problem was resolved.
XRoads Network, a leading and recognized expert in bandwidth management solutions, discussed the implications of problems with network connectivity for a large business that relies heavily on keeping their networks up and running. According to experts at XRoads as seen at http://www.xroadsnetworks.com, "Today's businesses cannot be subject to down times when it comes to network connectivity. In fact, a business may live or die by its ability to email, place VoIP calls and conduct customer relations management via its networks. Many businesses also store their information in the cloud, meaning that they rely on their connectivity to access this crucial information."
According to XRoads, there are ways to address connectivity issues effectively. "At XRoads, we can provide solutions that enable redundancy and protect companies against an outage such as the one suffered by United Airlines. With our solutions, even if there is a major router outage, the business will still have network access."
