Ensuring reliable connectivity and proper contingency planning can help companies and their employees stay connected in the event of severe weather.
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#businessinternet--LOGIX Fiber Networks, a Texas-based business phone, and data connectivity company, encourages businesses to be safe and prepared for the 2020 hurricane season in Texas, which runs from June 1 through November 30. An above-normal hurricane season is expected, according to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service.
The peak threat for Texas exists in August and September. LOGIX encourages companies to take important steps to ensure they are prepared. Company leaders can join LOGIX experts for a webinar on July 16th at 10:00 AM CT which will cover essential components of internet and voice business continuity and disaster recovery planning.
“One of the major negative impacts of any natural disaster is the disruption to communications. First and foremost, disruptions hinder the ability of first responders to successfully do their jobs which is to help those affected and for families to communicate with each other,” said Scott Brueggeman, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of LOGIX Fiber Networks. “But severe weather also impacts businesses and their ability to maintain operations and communications, especially since many employees are working remotely.”
With the arrival of hurricane season, businesses can be more vulnerable to network outages and data-loss during bad weather. Redundant and secure enterprise connectivity solutions offer reliability and resiliency, especially in times of disruption and disaster.
Establishing Reliable Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Options
LOGIX is sharing key considerations for companies so they can be ready when disaster strikes and keep their businesses running and their employees and customers connected.
- Choose Fiber: Fiber has proven to be the most reliable and resilient technology during times of natural disaster. Fiber networks are more durable than copper infrastructure, satellite, and wireless, and most fiber network routes are out of harm’s way since they are buried safely underground.
- Establish Redundancy: In the case of a power outage or a natural disaster, redundant networks can quickly reroute calls to other available fiber routes to reach the intended destinations. Because LOGIX has two separate, mirrored switching centers that are fully redundant, downtime is virtually eliminated even when problems occur locally.
- Use a Cloud-based Hosted PBX System: Hosted PBX systems include cloud-based phone services and unified communication services, so your employees remain connected despite local conditions. Most PBX systems come with feature-rich options including, caller ID, forwarding, hold, transfer, 3-way calling, auto-attendant, voicemail to text, custom hold music, call recording, instant communications, and more.
- Store Information in a Data Center Location: Obtaining space in a primary and secondary data center location ensures your key applications and data are backed-up and accessible in case one geographic area has a disruption.
