Data connection backup

How does it work?

DaySaver is your small remote office. It can work as a data connection backup, in case it your Internet goes down, and as a backup for Cloud PBX. And, same as its predeccessor, it provides phone calls and SMS even if your operator becomes unreachable (since it allows you placing calls via Mobile network).

DaySaver keeps monitoring the PBX and a other hosts and in case they become unreachable, it automatically switches to mobile data (4G connection). The gateway supports speeds up to 100 Mbit in download and 50 Mbit in upload.

Backup for the voice service: DaySaver is placed between the customer’s existing network and a separate VoIP Network (over vlan, for example). If the PBX becomes unreachable over network, DaySaver automatically switches the connectivity to 4G / LTE.

Without DaySaver:

With DaySaver:

Backup for an entire office: DaySaver is placed between the router and the whole network of the customer. In case the office internet connection goes down, all traffic starts working via DaySaver:

VoLTE configuration for backup

VoLTE Network allows using DaySaver as a backup for Cloud PBXs, as a backup for the cable Internet connection, or, even as the only Internet access for small offices or during the events.

To activate VoLTE, proceed with the following steps:

  • Go to Network -> VoLTE 
  • Check off Enable in Status field
  • Click Save
  • Confirm by clicking Apply

After activating VoLTE, network status can be checked in Status -> Overview -> VoLTE Network / Online:

To configure the device as a backup for Cloud PBXs:

  • Connect the device via LAN to a network switch
  • DaySaver via DHCP server distributes IP addresses from its range (check its status in  Status -> Overview -> DHCP Server)

Note: All other DCHP servers connected to a network switch should be disabled.

Important: If you do not connect DaySaver via WAN port to a router, you must assign a static IP to it. Otherwise the port will be assigned to IP address and DaySaver won't be registered to a PBX through LTE.

To use the device as a
backup for Internet connection:

  • Connect DaySaver via LAN to your PC. In case the Internet goes down, the devices switches to LTE and uses the cellular data

Note: IP address of LAN port and IP address of PC must be at the same network segment.
