Cradlepoint MBR1000 Router Failover Video
This Video shows you the Cradlepoint MBR1000 Mobile Broadband Router & the Verizon USB760 USB modem and how to use Failover. Failover lets you use 2 internet sources, one primary source, and one or more as backups or secondary sources.
Let’s say you have DSL or Cable as your primary source. In this instance we would add the incoming Ethernet cable into the Blue WAN port in back of the MBR1000. The 4 Yellow ports are Lan ports for outgoing Internet. These would be used to attach up to 4 computers or Internet devices to the CradlePoint via an Ethernet cable.
After setting the failover rules in the router admin, we now have it set to use the DSL cable as the primary source, and the Verizon aircard as the secondary source for failover. If the Internet stops working on the primary source, the MBR1000 will failover to the secondary source. Once the Internet service is restored, the router will failback to the primary Internet source.
Additionally, you can even add 2 or 3 aircards from Verizon, or from Verizon and another carrier like AT&T to offer even more redundancy. If one of your aircards stops working, the MBR1000 would failover to the secondary aircard.
With failover/failback your Internet service would always be up and running. If your business requires Internet service 24/7 then failover is a necessity and the MBR1000 Mobile Broadband Router is the perfect solution.
