Research suggests dangerous exposure to ISP failure among UK companies

5th January 2003

With many ISPs facing financial crisis the consequences for UK ebusiness could be dire

LONDON, United Kingdom - 5th January 2003 – Recent research reveals a dangerous lack of planning for ISP failure. The research, conducted in the last six months, suggests that many businesses will be adversely affected by the financial difficulties and potential closure currently threatening many of the established ISPs in the market. Asce Networks believes that few companies are aware of the possible solutions to this issue.

The research shows that although ninety-four percent of respondents stated that 100% Internet availability was important or very important to their business few have taken steps to guarantee connectivity in the event of a failure.

Less that half (44%) of respondents had more than one ISP connection and only one third of those that did (32%) used a connection from a different provider. Thirty-seven percent stated that when their ISP went down they simply waited for the ISP to fix the problem whilst sixteen percent manually re-directed their address spaces to an alternate service provider.

And in another research, Gartner Research states that Gartner anticipates that the Internet backbone will become 3 times less reliable by 2006, primarily due to economic pressures that ISPs are facing and increasing network complexity. Enterprises that do not build diversity and redundancy into their corporate networks put their business operations at a huge risk,said Ted Chamberlin, networking analyst, Gartner. Single, un-managed Internet links are one such example of single points of failure. Hence, one of the best ROI strategies for enterprises concerned about high availability is to have redundant ISP links and employ a solution that effectively switches traffic over the best link. Link load balancing solutions mitigate risk and can provide superior bandwidth flexibility and performance by sending users over the optimal route.

Bob Collins, CEO of Asce Networks ,Inc., commenting on the research said: "It is worrying to see the lack of redundancy employed in business' ISP connections. With the current state of the ISP market and uncertainties over future viability of even multi-national service providers, it is imperative that organisations of all sizes make some contingency for the possibility of losing an ISP connection."

Until recently, establishing automatic fail-over to a redundant ISP connection was difficult.BGP4 requires an agreement between the participating ISPs and a common address space, as well as expensive integration making it unsuitable in situations where an ISP goes out of business. Manual re-direction not only takes time, costing business for every minute that connectivity is lost, but also requires skilled personnel, putting it beyond the reach of many smaller businesses.

Asce Networks’ OmniRange Plus series appliance, has the capability to deliver automatic ISP fail-over through its patented load-balancing software. Multiple ISP, or even banks of ADSL connections, can be connected to the firewall which automatically tests these connections on an ongoing basis. If a connection fails OmniRange Plus simply re-balances the traffic across the remaining operating connections.
