With winter storm season approaching, it's that time of year again for TeleDynamic to encourage you to establish a business continuity plan for your telecommunications system.
Unfortunately, disasters are a part of life. Earthquakes, weather-related disasters, computer viruses, Internet attacks and carrier failures - to name a few.
The Importance of a Continity Plan for Telecommunications Systems

Businesses invest a tremendous amount of time, money, and resources to make their ventures successful, and yet, while the importance of emergency planning may seem self-evident, it often gets put on the back burner in the face of more immediate concerns. Being prepared can make an impact on actually staying in business following a disaster.

The above points illustrate some of the methods to reduce the chance of telecom failure and speed recovery from disasters. A bit of good news on a bleak subject, many of the measures are inexpensive and easy to implement.
