In a Massive Storm, How Do You Keep Life-Saving Services Like 911 Online?

Since DPS Telecom manufactures remote monitoring equipment for telecom networks, Mr. Storm understands the important role that remote monitoring can play in protecting our modern communications infrastructure. That knowledge inspired the campaign announced today.

"Watching this storm unfold has reminded me of the precautions many telecom, utility, and transit companies have taken by deploying monitoring tools," Mr. Storm said. "Still, I know that many other well-intentioned companies are using outdated network monitoring techniques – or none at all. This can literally endanger lives by causing electricity, 911, and public safety communications to fail when we need them most. Imagine being cut off from your local 911 dispatch center or without electricity during a major storm."

According to Storm, poor disaster preparedness at some companies is mostly due to unequal knowledge among telecom professionals.

"Do you have network-protecting techniques to share with us? Would you like a copy of our final report once it’s compiled?" Storm asks. "Networks must stay up, 911 services must be available, commercial power has to stay online, and all types of transit need to keep moving. Storms quickly become lethal if our infrastructure isn’t resilient. Remote monitoring and control of telecom networks, therefore, can really be a life-saving technology. Please share with me so that I can share with others." [email protected]
