Dual-Carrier ConnectivitySecurely & privately connect to the Internet with redundancy.
Akative RocketWAN is a secure Wide Area Network (WAN) that allows traffic to flow on a private 4G LTE/5G-based network — this is revolutionary for connectivity. RocketWAN provides secure access across your entire network over 4G LTE/5G. RocketWAN allows your business to dictate how much, if any, of your network is exposed to the Internet. That means RocketWAN eliminates extraneous threats and works to avoid the network security events and vulnerabilities of traditional Broadband, which routes all traffic through the Internet.Download RocketWAN Flyer
Secure Internet Access & Traffic Routing
RocketWAN is revolutionizing the way that user traffic is shaped to deliver advantages when it comes to data consumption and content filtering. With custom specifications, traffic is carried back to the Akative™ datacenter via redundant carrier VPN connections. This dual-carrier capability allows secure user-access via 4G LTE/5G to deliver seamless connectivity and coverage.
By providing easy connectivity for devices via secure, private 4G LTE/5G, RocketWAN eliminates the need for costly firewall hardware at every network location, as well as complex network configurations to rebuild VPN tunnels. Also, by rate limiting multiple users, Internet access can be provided while mitigating excessive data use.
Why Use Dual-Carrier 4G LTE/5G?
Before Akative, when reliable Internet connectivity was needed, dual connections (relying on copper or fiber) were implemented. However, the two broadband connections commonly share a ‘last-mile’ because cables may be in the same conduit or share the same physical path. Shared last-miles commonly result in failures occurring where both the primary and secondary connections are lost simultaneously.
For this reason, we designed RocketWAN to deliver out-of-box, multi-carrier 4G LTE/5G connectivity to nearly any location in the United States. With RocketWAN, users can connect on a private WAN connection via Verizon or AT&T to seamlessly roam between carriers without dropping connectivity. This functionality is cost-effective because it can be used for failover, or to provide carrier agnostic connectivity, to ensure the best, most suitable carrier is used. RocketWAN also integrates data usage across multiple carriers and rolls up easy-to-understand data usage reports via our iStatus®monitoring dashboard.
Top RocketWAN Applications
RocketWAN supports a diverse customer base with varied connectivity needs. RocketWAN is engineered to reduce bandwidth by filtering traffic in the core of a network. Below are some of the most popular applications.
Mobile & Remote Applications
Companies/organizations that are on-the-go and need a private centralized network (to access intranet resources such as proprietary systems, collaboration tools, or file storage) but don’t require access to the public Internet.
- Police/Law Enforcement
- Trucking/Cargo Industry
- Digital Signage
Corporate/Public Service Applications
Companies/organizations that want a centralized network with access to the public Internet, but want to reduce cost and network complexity by applying content filters/restrictions to Internet access.
- Retail & Restaurants
- School Districts & Libraries
- Public Transportation
- Government & Judicial Facilities
- Healthcare Facilities
- SMBs & Enterprises
Internet of Things (IoT) Applications
Companies/organizations that desire people or business locations to have access to the Internet but want to reduce cost and network complexity by increasing centralized security, monitoring, and logging.
- Internet of Things
- Smart Cities
- Vending Machines
By building VPN's from the core of the network, RocketWAN prevents mobile users from having to re-establish VPN connections as they roam. This is a massive advantage for secure, mobile applications because it saves valuable time and also reduces the amount of bandwidth used from constantly re-establishing the connections. CoreVPN builds secure VPN connections that allow users to roam from tower-to-tower to allow connectivity to be maintained at mobile highway speeds.
AirLock allows secure connections from mobile 4G LTE/5G customers and facilitates a suite of network security services to enable: traffic logging, automated reporting, traffic management, gateway antivirus, intrusion prevention, Botnet detection, geographic blocking, content filtering, data loss prevention, reputation enabled defense, and more.

Add Managed Connectivity as a Service
Akative CaaS support can be added to any Akative failover solution. CaaS provides eyes-on monitoring of your connectivity and connectivity resolution support services. When connections fail, Akative can provide complete end-to-end support, remediating the issue, or can provide various levels of support to assist your team in resolving connectivity issues. By using the CaaS support team at Akative, you directly reduce your labor costs and dramatically reduce your MTTR (Mean Time To Recover) in the event of a connection failure.
