Many broadband users are familiar with the occasional scramble to troubleshoot a degraded connection at an inconvenient time. One solution is something they’re likely already paying for: using cellular hotspot for powering the Wi-Fi devices on their premises. But shifting from an unreliable network connection to this secondary access network isn’t foolproof.
In addition to being able to recognize when an outage is occurring, a user must know how to turn on their cellular hotspot, disconnect the other Wi-Fi devices from the home or business Wi-Fi network and connect them to the cellular hotspot. Finally, they must also know how to detect when the outage is resolved, how to turn off the cellular hotspot and how to reconnect the Wi-Fi devices back to the home or business Wi-Fi network.
