Today’s businesses operate in a hyper-competitive, increasingly global economy, faced with more communication, logistical and system challenges than ever before. Mobile workers, smartphones, tablets, laptops, cloud-based business applications, email, Voice over IP (VoIP) phones, in-house business applications...the complexity continues to grow. And at the heart of it all is the network. The network enables internal and external communication. It’s where and how business gets done. It is the backbone of 21st century business.

So what happens when it goes down and the business can’t get online?

For many, business just stops. When that happens, businesses lose money. A recent study by Ponemon Institute found that on average, businesses lose $22,000 every minute their network is down. That’s a staggering statistic that includes lost website traffic, salaries, productivity and lost revenue in the calculation.

For many businesses, network downtime is catastrophic to the bottom line. Datto Networking was designed with always connected networking in mind.

We call it Network Continuity.

What is 4G LTE, and why is it important?

Today, 4G (or 4th Generation) promises data transfer speeds of up to 100 Mbps, and represents the high-speed data transfer across all cellular networks. According to a recent report by Open Signal, Verizon Wireless leads the US market with the fastest downloads and most reliable 4G network. LTE, or Long Term Evolution was coined as an all-encompassing term to describe the technologies needed to get to the promise of 4G.

So why does this matter, and what does it have to do with Datto Networking? Datto Networking delivers fully integrated 4G LTE failover and failback from Verizon Wireless as one of its key features. This means that if the business loses its connection to the Internet, we detect it and seamlessly failover to Verizon’s network. Business keeps going.

Point of Sale Networking

In the United States today, there are approximately 10 million payment terminals, and nearly 60% of those use analog dial-up to process payments. Dial-up speeds are slow, ranging from 300 bits per second (bps) up to 56K (56,000 bps). Compare these speeds to Datto Networking’s high-speed 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections, with speeds ranging from 10 million bits per second (Mbps) all the way up to 1,000 Mbps. In a busy retail setting, slow data speeds can create a bottleneck, frustrating retail workers and customers alike, especially during peak shopping times.

In addition to delivering high-speed Internet to the retail floor, Datto Networking includes fully integrated 4G LTE failover and failback for always connected Internet, to ensure retailers can always process payments. And with Datto’s wireless networking options, up to 4 separate WiFi networks, including a guest network complete with the store’s branded landing page, can be quickly and simply created and managed. It’s a win/win for retailers and for their customers. Always connected Internet means users stay connected, payments get processed faster and retailers deliver a better customer experience.

Access points work together to form a self-organizing, self-healing, encrypted mesh network with seamless WiFi roaming automatically enabled. No more dead spots.

Quality of Service - Traffic Shaping

The Datto Networking Appliance includes the ability to prioritize business critical applications, a feature commonly known as Traffic Shaping. Utilizing the simple configuration interface in the Datto Networking cloud management software, a Datto partner can identify those applications that require precedence (such as VoIP) to ensure those applications have enough bandwidth to function in an uninterrupted mode. Traffic Shaping also ensures business critical applications will continue to function, even when the Datto Networking Appliance is in failover mode. The result? Always connected networking, and uninterrupted business critical applications.


External Antenna Option

The Datto Networking Appliance comes fully equipped with three WiFi and two 4G LTE antennas. But as many networking appliances are physically located in a back room, in a closet or simply “out of the way,” there are scenarios where the location of the appliance can cause interference and negatively affect the appliance’s ability to connect to the LTE network. To remedy this situation, Datto provides an optional, add-on external antenna. This additional antenna support creates more flexibility and options to deploy the Datto Networking Appliance, and improves connectivity, even in low signal environments.



The Datto Networking product line includes high-performance, extremely reliable products, built specifically for the managed service provider. The comprehensive cloud management system delivers a single pane of glass view of all networks and network devices under management, simplifying network deployment and troubleshooting and streamlining the delivery of managed networking services.
