When assessing what technology and internet requirements an online teaching center’s workspace needs, it can sometimes be daunting and confusing.

Also, it can involve a high degree of risk, as technical capabilities play a BIG part in the online student’s user-experience and satisfaction.

When your teaching desk technology fails, it can cause problems in delivering a great online experience to your students!

So if your primary internet system or provider ever goes down, then it’s important to have good back up infrastructure and redundancy systems ready to go into action immediately.

We share some tips for assessing the right back up internet solutions for your teaching desks:

4G Wireless Internet Solution:

Wireless internet solutions provide a good backup alternative when you are experiencing last mile congestion.

Wireless should never be your primary internet connection as -similar to a car radio- you are also subject to radio wave strength and reception issues (in other words, a weak signal or interference can also affect performance).

Windy and cloudy conditions can also cause cell tower or antenna sway, which can affect wireless Internet signal reception!

Satellite Internet:

Satellite should always be avoided as a back up solution since this service is extremely slow and is subject to poor or limited performance due to bad weather conditions (similar to satellite television).

Generally the upload speed is about ¼ the speed of the service.

For example, a 10M service has only 7.5 M reserved for download and the remaining 2.5M reserved for upload.
