Hi i'm a fresh network administrator my boss wants to be able to have access to our servers all the time so he told me to add a second internet source to our network in case the main internet connection is lost the second automatically takes it place and my boss can still access the servers.

i decided to make a 3g sim card my second connection so my question is is there any device that can replace the main connection with the 3g connection whenever  the main connection is lost? or if not then is there any way to have redundancy?

who is your provider? cisco makes several enterprise routers that have 3 or 4g cellular backup. I know Verizon business has them. you basically would want to google "router with 3g failover" to find products that fit the bill. there are some on the market that can use the USB 3g modems. I've not used any, but I know they exist.
