Launching Orion by Ripplecom

Orion by Ripplecom. Maximum uptime for Irish businesses

With the launch of our new product, Orion, Ripplecom promises to keep companies connected, even when the internet goes down.

Call for back-up

Ripplecom delivers Data, Voice and IT Security services to businesses across Ireland. Reliability and maximum availability are top priorities for our customers.

According to Managing Director, John McDonnell, “We talk to businesses every day. Most companies have a primary connection that works for them. With so many devices and more applications being pushed to the cloud, what they need now is back-up to guarantee they stay connected.”

To meet this need for resilience, Ripplecom’s in-house engineering team devised Orion; a clever, compact and cost-effective failover. Find out all about Orion by Ripplecom here.

‘Internet as usual’

At its simplest, when a network disruption occurs, Orion quickly switches all devices from a primary to a secondary connection. Orion tears down all IP protocols and rebuilds them in milliseconds with no change to internal servers and no action required by the client or their IT provider. Orion’s failover is so seamless that users will be blissfully unaware that an outage has occurred.

Keep calm and VoIP on

Ripplecom’s conjoined primary and secondary network connections are uniquely engineered to continue in the same IP stream. This allows any linked systems or devices – even ongoing VoIP telephone calls- to continue uninterrupted. Crucially, this means businesses can continue to process card transactions, with segregated ports helping vendors to stay secure and PCI compliant.

Failover, fail back

All critical applications continue to run on the secondary connection for the duration of the outage, automatically switching back to the primary source as soon as it is restored. Ripplecom’s support system remotely monitors both connections and issues a customised report each time Orion is deployed.

Land and air: a better solution for business

For years, larger national and multinational companies have protected themselves against network outages by building wired resilience into their infrastructure. But custom network builds are expensive, time-consuming and beyond the capacity of most enterprises. Not to mention that wired solutions are vulnerable to physical damage, which, when it does occur, can take weeks to repair. Using two diverse paths- one by land and one by air- our engineers created Orion as much more affordable- and functionally superior- alternative for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Get connected; stay connected

Service disruptions and network faults are outside of a business’ control and impossible to predict but, with Orion, owners, managers and IT professionals can relax knowing that, when an outage does occur, their company will stay securely connected and operational.
