Are Your Communications Reliable, Or Just ‘Reliable Enough’?

Sponsored Content provided by Joey Stone - General Manager and Vice President , Teleco

Is your business safe from phone system outages caused by natural disasters, hackers or human error? What about sudden surges in call volume? For a moment, consider how your existing communications solutions fared during events such as the following:

  • Natural disasters: Hurricane Sandy, for example, took down mobile network infrastructure along the Atlantic coast in 2012 and cut off power to millions of customers.
  • Malfunctions in equipment: According to Quorum’s “Disaster Recovery Report,” hardware failure ranks No. 1 (55 percent) and software failure No. 3 (18 percent) in overall sources of downtime for small to midsized businesses. No. 2? Well, that’s good ol’ human error for you (22 percent).
Even if you have a UC system with some failover protection in place, you can further batten down the hatches to avoid the repercussions of a disaster, regardless of its origin. It’s important that you foolproof your existing recovery system, as downtime can ruin a small or midsized business. In fact, 25 percent of small businesses do not reopen after a major disaster, according to a report from HP and SCORE.  Judge your company’s ability to withstand downtime for yourself – it’s been estimated that just one hour of downtime can cost a midsized business tens of thousands of dollars.
           
So is there a fail-safe method to protect telecommunications networks, along with a company’s revenue, customers and reputation? The best strategy, along with frequent and regular system testing, is to have a disaster recovery plan for every operation within an enterprise that will enable instant recovery of data, applications and systems.
