Ensuring reliable connectivity and proper contingency planning can help companies and their employees stay connected in the event of severe weather.
HOUSTON, July 19, 2021 — LOGIX Fiber Networks, a Texas-based business telecom connectivity company with more than 10,000 customers, encourages businesses to plan for the 2021 hurricane season in Texas, which began in June and runs through November.
With another above-normal hurricane season expected, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, LOGIX encourages its customers to take proactive steps now to ensure they are prepared and can maintain connectivity and prevent data loss in the event of severe weather.
“Each hurricane season, we are reminded of the harsh impact natural disasters can have on communication, making it difficult for first responders to help those affected, families to stay in touch and for businesses to continue operations,” said Scott Brueggeman, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of LOGIX Fiber Networks. “By offering redundant and secure enterprise connectivity solutions, LOGIX provides the reliability and resiliency needed for businesses and employees to stay connected, especially in times of severe weather.”
LOGIX outlines the following tips for hurricane season below that companies can take to ensure their businesses are prepared in the event of a weather disaster.
- 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. LOGIX has two separate, mirrored switching centers that are fully redundant, so downtime is minimal even when problems occur locally.
- Use Hosted Business Voice Cloud Services: LOGIX’s feature-rich cloud-based phone solution is backed by a carrier-grade network and data center redundancy. This reliable business phone solution supports remote team members and improves employee productivity and collaboration regardless of weather conditions.
- Store Data and Run Applications in Data Centers: Obtaining colocation space in a primary and a secondary data center ensures business-critical applications are backed up and data is accessible in case of geographic disruptions.
Throughout Texas, LOGIX connects more than 3,000 office buildings and nearly 100 third-party data centers and continues to keep businesses connected in all types of weather conditions.
