Why Redundancy Matters

In today’s digitally driven world, a reliable internet connection is more crucial than before. Fiber optic technology has revolutionized the way we access the web, offering lightning-fast speeds and unmatched reliability. However, behind the scenes, the success of fiber internet infrastructure heavily relies on a concept known as redundancy. Redundancy, in the context of fiber optic networks, refers to the duplication of critical components and pathways to ensure uninterrupted connectivity. This is why Visionary Broadband is “Building Fiber the way it should be built.” 

Redundancy safeguards residences and businesses against unexpected outages. Fiber is exceptionally robust, but not immune to damage from factors such as natural disasters, construction accidents, or equipment failures. Redundant pathways and components act as a fail-safe, automatically rerouting data through alternate routes when an issue arises. Many users have experienced outages from providers that leave them at the mercy of just waiting until it gets fixed because the redundant infrastructure of their network doesn’t exist. 

Redundant systems also allow for seamless upgrades and modifications, ensuring that the network can adapt to increasing user demands. In this way, redundancy not only ensures immediate reliablilty but it also helps us to stay ahead of the curve in the ever-evolving landscape of internet technology. 

Visionary Broadband is doing just that. We are taking the time, investing and putting in the work to build our fiber infrastructure the right way. We want our customers, businesses, schools and municipalities to rest assured that they’ll be connected when it matters most!
