Your Verizon provided router is to be used with your Internet Dedicated Service / Express Connect Package / Wireless Backup solution.

  • What is Express Connect/Wireless Backup?

  • Express Connect uses 4G LTE wireless access with a router to quickly turn on your service—typically in only eight business days of a successful Order Verification Call. With an easy to install router, you can get your mission-critical applications up and running fast. And once your wireline connectivity is installed, this access becomes “Wireless Backup” and it turns into a fail-over backup solution for your internet connection.

    Express Connect / Wireless Backup include the following:

    • Internet Dedicated Services from 1.5 to 100 Mbps
    • Access over Ethernet or T1
    • Interim 4G LTE wireless access prior to circuit installation (U.S. locations)
    • Wi-Fi functionality (for select equipment)
    • 4G LTE wireless backup data plan with 1 GB monthly data allowance (U.S. locations)
    • Customer premises equipment (CPE) in the form of an integrated access router from manufacturers such as Cradlepoint, Cisco, and ADTRAN with ongoing maintenance
    • Self-service or professional on-site installation by Verizon

    Express Connect is ideal for providing internet access to branch offices, retail locations, and construction sites where fast access are vital to success.

    Upon successful activation of your Internet Dedicated Services, your wireless router will become your full time primary internet router, with 4G LTE wireless backup functionality. This business continuity feature helps you maintain connectivity in the event of man-made or natural disasters by automatically switching to the Verizon 4G LTE network.

  • Steps for a Successful Activation / Installation of your Express Connect router

  • Over the next few weeks, a Verizon Order Manager will be assigned to facilitate the implementation of the circuit(s) you ordered. The Order Manager will be contacting you to review the order details and begin the implementation process.

    Order Verification Call

    To complete your order, a Verizon Order Manager will be assigned to your Express Connect/Wireless Backup order (as well as the Internet Dedicated Services order if applicable) and contact you to verify your order details. During this time, the details regarding your router activation will be verified. This usually happens 4 business days after your order is submitted by your Account Team.

    During the Order Verification Call, the Order Manager will discuss with you the technical considerations when 4G LTE is being used as the primary access method.

    • No BGP (Border Gateway Program), Multi-homed, transparent VLAN Tagging, or NAT
    • VoIP service is not recommended
    • No Multi-service Ethernet
    • No Reverse DNS
    • 3G/4G LTE uses dynamic or static IP addresses (separate from IDS circuit)
    • Location of router or use of external antenna
    • When in wireless backup mode, the router will failover to the Internet. Any special routing that the customer has set up in the router will not work over the 4G LTE connection unless the customer has configured their router after the initial installation.

    Note: Upon a successful Order Verification Call in which your order is verified, your Verizon installed router will be configured and activated for use within 8 business days. Your self-installed router will be configured, shipped, and activated within 8 business days.

    CUSTOMER ACTION: It is your responsibility to be available on the date provided for the Order Verification Call to avoid re-scheduling and potential service downtime.

    The Order Manager will be your primary point of contact moving forward until the activation of your Express Connect/Wireless Backup and Internet Dedicated Services is complete.

    The graphic below shows some common situations that may delay your Express Connect service.

  • Prepare for Your Router Activation / Installation

  • You or your local contact/authorized person should perform the following actions for successful activation/installation of the router:

    • Confirm the address of where your services will be delivered and installation.
    • Identify your local knowledgeable contact/authorized person.
    • Confirm you and your local contact/authorized person can be present on the due dates for activation and/or installation of the router.
    • CUSTOMER ACTION: For self-installations, you or someone you designate in your organization should be available to sign for the router package.

    • Identify within the facility the demarcation point where the router would be located.

    Note: The router should be placed as close as possible to the demarcation points of your Internet Dedicated circuit as this router will be also used for your Internet Dedicated Services.

    • Ensure all of your customer premise equipment (CPE) and connections are functioning properly (i.e. computers, laptops, credit card machines, etc).

    Note: Verizon will not assess the functionality of your own CPE. That is your responsibility.

    Physical Requirements

    You must take specific action and/or ensure that the following items are appropriately addressed for successful activation of your router:

    • Cabling and wiring needed to connect router to the DMARC (demarcation) location.
    • CUSTOMER ACTION: You are responsible for general inside wiring which is not part of the activation of the ordered equipment (CPE) or services.

    • Assume responsibility for hardware, software and memory compatibility issues related to existing equipment you choose to use.
    • CUSTOMER ACTION: You are responsible for the configuration of any CPE that is not Verizon supplied. If you have Verizon CPE from a previous order, it is your responsibility to configure it as well.

    Demarcation (DMARC) Extensions

    If services need to be extended beyond the telecommunications demarcation point, you are responsible for ensuring that extended demarcation facilities are installed and ready upon implementation of your service. Alternatively, you may be able to order a DMARC extension from Verizon or the third-party local exchange company (LEC). Delays in extending a DMARC may result in implementation delays.

    Note: Additional delays in DMARC could affect your ability to use the router and/or your Internet Dedicated Services activation later on.

    Power Requirements

    Loss of electrical power may cause the router to cease working if there are no accommodations made for back-up power. Verizon highly recommends that you install an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) onsite.

    Verizon does not provide UPS units; however, if you choose to implement a UPS, the following are some guidelines for reliable communications in case of a power outage:

    • Back-up the entire building using UPS. This will help protect all devices and equipment from power failures, including telephony, data networking, and PCs.
    • Provide a separate generator for back-up power (in addition to the feed provided by the utility company). In this case, you may still need to add UPS, because it may take a few minutes for the generator to ramp up.

    Note: The advantage of this approach is that less battery time is needed for each UPS. You should consult with your Order Manager for any additional power requirements as needed.

    Permits and Approvals

    If needed, you should obtain all necessary permits and approvals for the use of the router or any of your other network equipment. You are responsible for complying with all applicable codes, regulations, and laws.

    CUSTOMER ACTION: For more detailed information about preparing your site for your upcoming installation (either performed by you or Verizon), please refer to the Verizon’s Customer Readiness website.

  • Router Activation & Installation

  • For your router installation and activation, Verizon will take care of all that is needed to get you up and running. But if you are doing a self-installation, here is some information that may help you.

    The timing of your Express Connect router installation and activation is related to several onsite activities that may occur on your side (construction, LEC coordination, DMARC extension, permits/approvals, etc). Your Order Manager will work with you to find the best time to set up your activation timing and to answer any questions that may arise.

    For Express Connect self-installation:

    * Reply to this email with the subject: SIM Card Activation Instructions. This email reply will confirm the receipt of your equipment and will trigger the activation of your SIM card. The SIM card activation may take up to 24 hours from receipt of this email.

    Site Requirements

    Review the Self-Installation Guide included with your router. This document will assist you in preparing for your service. Reviewing the content on this document and following some simple steps will help facilitate a smooth activation of your service.

    Configuration Changes

    Your router is configured to your Express Connect/Wireless Backup service. You are responsible for any specific configuration need (i.e. your own internal specifications).

    Note: Please note that any changes may cause activation and connectivity issues.

  • Your router as a backup to Internet Dedicated Services

  • Once your Internet Dedicated Services is fully activated, you are now ready to have your router used as a backup to your Internet/network service. Express Connect becomesWireless Backup and works as 4G LTE wireless backup for your internet connection. So, in the unlikely event that your internet service becomes unavailable; your service automatically switches to the Verizon 4G LTE network to help keep your business up and running.

    Once the outage is over and service has been detected, the router will automatically fail-back to the primary service, and the 4G LTE wireless access will revert to backup mode.

    Consult the Self-Installation Guide (found in your router box) for more details.

  • Manage your account with Verizon Enterprise Center

  • Verizon Enterprise Center gives you access to critical information and resources on demand from virtually anywhere, at any time. The comprehensive management tool can help you make the solutions you use work more efficiently, save time, and control costs.
