With automatic failover configured, Optimizer CrewComm Premier will automatically switch between available networks to give you the fastest, cheapest connectivity available to you at that time. Optimizer CrewComm Premier also offers full-featured load-balancing and least-cost routing to keep your airtime costs under your control.
