How robust is your service level agreement? As you migrate more applications and business communications to the cloud, the risk created by single points of failure in your infrastructure is exacerbated. They can lead to network outages, which result in lost productivity and lost revenues. With all those potential choke points, you need to incorporate enterprise-grade resiliency into your deployment.

Diversity is the foundation of an effective business continuity policy

A diversity scheme improves the reliability of a signal by using two distinct physical access methods, following different routes from two distinct core network edges, to reach a customer building—resulting in no single points of failure at the last mile. At the transport layer, long haul diversity ensures the long haul transport paths don’t cross. At the service layer, providers can home services to multiple servers.
