Business continuity is the ability to maintain core business functions without downtime during disruptive events. While it involves many components across all business functions, contingency planning for network infrastructure is of the upmost importance as having no functioning enterprise networks means no essential connectivities for business-critical services such as cloud storage, digital payment systems, CDPs, CRMs, SaaS applications, and VoIP.


As natural disasters have become more frequent and intensified, finding ways to maintain enterprise networks is one of the most highly requested services from solution providers and system integrators. A provider specialized in delivering integrated voice, data, network, cloud, and mobility IT solutions for SMBs came to Lanner for a hardware platform on which contingency network can be built and relied upon for business operations even when and if any disruptive event does occur.


The aim is to use software-defined wide-area networks (SD-WAN) for building up the support for the aforementioned business-critical services. This resulting SD-WAN must guarantee business continuity by maintaining optimized network functions and the applications and systems that depend on them. Although requested features differ among networks and vendors, the said hardware appliance must facilitate the deployment of a reliable SD-WAN with redundancy, resilience, high availability and risk management.

Lanner Solution

Lanner’s ISD-O370 is a rugged, fanless uCPE designed for extreme environments. This platform features a 16-core Intel Atom C3000 processor with crypto acceleration and supports 5G/Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.

It also comes with both IP67 and MIL-STD-810G compliance and is designed to withstand harsh temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 70ºC; not to mention that it is also dust and water resistant. Configured with 64 GB of DDR4 ECC RAM and the built-in Intel QuickAssist Technology, the ISD-O370 effortlessly handles SD-WAN and other critical network tasks, guaranteeing network connectivities even in the toughest of deployment settings.


A ISD-O370-based SD-WAN offers the following competitive advantages.

Intelligent Automation

Allowing for dynamic routing/segmenting and taking advantage of the fastest available path across multiple connections so that business-critical data can be prioritized and both efficiency and high reliability are ensured even when supporting multiple high-bandwidth or cloud-based applications on the same network.

Network Redundancy

Redundancy can be created by integrating SD-WAN with other and/or existing ㄐnetwork solutions such as broadband, LTE or MPLS, ensuring the most optimal network path and connection at any moment is selected, therefore making sure all critical systems/services stay online.

Resilience/High Availability

Providers are able to enhance network resilience by working with multiple carriers with global reach and geographic diversity so that when one carrier or service area experiences interruption, another carrier's network takes their place in order to maintain network connectivity.


With 24/7/365 network connectivities serving as one of the most crucial enablers of almost all business functions today, effective business continuity demands meticulous planning in order to ensure all mission-critical operations remain functional during natural or man-made disasters. Fortunately businesses today can now turn to SD-WAN solutions, such as those put together using Lanner’s ISD-O370, to reinforce their continuity plans, not only guaranteeing access to critical applications and systems, but also keeping remote sites or branches interconnected, and realizing secure data backups.
