RightFax Connect Service OutageService outage leaves RightFax™ Connect and EasyLink Fax2Mail customers without fax service

etherFAX customers remained

Yesterday, October 4th, 2016, customers using RightFax™ Connect™ and EasyLink Fax2Mail™ reported service failures as a result of a Level 3 Communications network outage which left companies across the country without phone, fax, and internet service. Outages were also reported by Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and other service providers because of their use of the Level 3 infrastructure. 
Luckily, our customers using etherFAX™ for cloud-fax transmission were not affected by this outage because of the etherFAX multi-carrier backbone.  This redundant architecture ensures your mission-critical fax environment is not vulnerable to the outages of a single carrier. This redundancy is particularly critical in times of catastrophic events such as hurricanes and other natural disasters.
If you would like to learn more about how etherFAX can dramatically improve the high availability and disaster recovery of your fax environment, contact an IIS Fax Specialist today.
