PHILADELPHIA -- Comcast Business today announced the launch of Connection Pro, the first automatic 4G wireless backup internet connection offered by a broadband provider. Comcast Business Connection Pro is a Business Internet add-on that provides small businesses nationwide an automatic 4G LTE cellular back-up that helps keep essential business functions going during outages caused by power failure or network disruption.

In the event of an internet or network disruption, Connection Pro automatically connects to the stronger of two redundant wireless networks, allowing small businesses to power their essential business functions – such as point of sale systems, back office connections, email and cloud-based applications – for up to 8 hours.

“Internet connectivity is critical for any business. Losing their connection – even shortly – can be disruptive,” said Jeff Lewis, Vice President, Data Product Management, Comcast Business. “Comcast Business understands that businesses need a redundant back-up solution to help stay connected and provide greater peace of mind in the event of a power or internet outage. Only Comcast Business Connection Pro gives small businesses the connectivity they need during an outage.”

Comcast Business Connection Pro offers automatic back-up at an affordable price. Connection Pro is available to Business Internet customers for an additional $29.95 per month with a term agreement. Comcast Business Connection Pro includes:

  • Automatic 4G LTE back-up across the stronger of two redundant wireless networks
  • A backup battery that provides up to eight hours of power
  • An intuitive online portal that allows customers to monitor their service status

Soup of the day..?
Two networks, huh..? Well, it makes you wonder what 6 month “Freeloader Friday” promo Teeny-Bopper T-Mobile will respond with. Free tacos from Jack-In-The-Box..? A new slow-cooked clam chowder recipie made from Sunday’s leftovers? 20% off discount coupon on the famous “PetSafe Static Basic Bark Control Collar”..? (I was told the last one is great for UN-leashed pets!)

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
