OUR VERIZON CONNECTION MEANS THAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE INTERNET


Connected HHI Adds Cradlepoint as Partner

After researching and testing many different solutions for our ALWAYS-ON Network service for business, we selected Cradlepoint,  The Cradlepoint product line allows Connected HHI to offer the right solution for every size business.  We installed Cradlepoint cellular data modems and failover routers in a number of our customer sites after six weeks of hands-on testing in our lab.  The Cradlepoint modems and routers provide a second internet connection that is automatically activated when the primary internet connection goes down.  All of the business systems continue to run without missing a beat- no fire drills, no lost orders, no downtime!

And Connected HHI uses the Cradlepoint Cloud Manager to  monitor, update, and manage the Cradlepoint equipment from our offices.

As an authorized Cradlepoint partner, Connected HHI has access to product, training, and technical support resources that ensure that we can offer the best service for our customers.  We have Cradlepoint equipment installed in our lab and available for demonstration.

Post-Matthew Notes

Hurricane Matthew Visit

My wife and I were in Napa when we heard that Matthew was forming and was a potential threat to Hilton Head Island.  Thanks to wonderful friends, our pool and patio furniture was safely stowed before evacuation was ordered.  I started closely monitoring WTOC and Weather Channel updates as well as keeping a watch on our house.  We were able to see live video from inside and outside of our house as well as confirm that the AC was working properly.  We lost access to the systems at approximately 4:30am on Saturday and regained access less than 12 hours later. (Thank you Palmetto Electric and Time-Warner!)
