Preparing for the worst with disaster recovery

Why is having a disaster recovery plan for your telecommunications important?

October 18, 2018

According to a recent study, 65% of business owners find that Telecommunications are the weakest link in their disaster recovery plan, despite being one of the most valuable assets a company can have.

Your telecommunications infrastructure is an invaluable asset. From broadband to telephones, most businesses rely on having a connection to the outside world at all times, and with the modern era of smartphones, hot-desking and mobile working, your telecoms are more important than ever. So, what would happen to your business if there was a major power outage? What would you do if someone accidentally dug up your broadband lines? Or even if your lines were broken by a tractor?

These are scenarios that you can't leave down to luck. If your broadband was to fault, how much would that cost your business in lost revenue? When buying a telecoms solution, you're making an investment and you should consider safeguarding this investment with a telecoms disaster recovery solution. Although most modern phone systems are robust, faults and issues can occur that are often out of your control, so planning for these eventualities is a must.

We recommend creating a plan to help protect your business in the event of an issue or outage. This plan should include scenarios such as a major power outage, a broadband failure or an issue with your phone lines. Our engineers have years of experience in helping customers recover from outages and will endeavour to fix the problem however they can. In the meantime, having a strong and robust disaster recovery plan can create a buffer and allow your business to stay connected while we work on the issue.

Disaster recovery is an important, and perhaps under-appreciated aspect of telecoms. By ensuring you have solutions in place, you can help prevent the damage caused to your business by a telephony outage.
