Unified Communications Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Plan Questions

Questions that need to be asked before creating a business continuity/disaster recovery plan based on a unified communications and collaboration platform.

As Hurricane Earl makes its way to the East Coast, Verizon, the nation's largest wireless carrier, is beefing up its operations so that loved ones can stay in contact and that residents in the affected areas will have a clear signal to cope with any pending problems. Within the past 24 hours, Verizon has deployed mobile cell towers, mobile stores, mobile generators, wireless emergency contact centers and personnel to the North Carolina coast, dbTechno reports.


Rich Bulger, director of operations and head of the Carolinas Emergency Response Team said:

We have fully prepared our network, operations and personnel for Earl's potential impact on the East Coast. Even though Verizon Wireless prepares our network throughout the year to ensure reliable service for our customers, right now we are specifically focused on putting in place network reinforcements and collaborating with federal, state and local emergency response teams so critical communications will be seamless for everyone.

Verizon has also issued a statement that includes suggestions to help customers prepare for Earl and a video with helpful tips on emergency preparedness.
