Network Outage Resolved – AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile are now reporting all services running.
Could your business handle this same type of network outage lasting 24 to 36 hours ?

The outage that affected AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile is resolved and being reported as a hardware failure.postit_outage
What’s interesting is not long ago a United Airlines and Wall Street and happened to have network outages that were all reported on hardware and communication failures.
Those failures happened on the same days at almost the same time.
It would be interesting to find out why the layers of redundancy we expect to be in place didn’t bypass or help with locating the failures.
If hardware was the cause of these major outages then there needs to be an outside company brought in to review and setup new fail over and recovery steps.
We will never know the actual cause of these problems but it’s the reason I tell people to always think about how you would live and work if you didn’t have the internet for multiple days?
Many of the services we use today all require the internet to operate.
The stores in our area were cash only this afternoon because they could no process credit cards.
Do you have enough cash set aside in case ATMs were down for 24 hours or longer?
Could your business operate if you didn’t have internet access?
How would you handle payments?
Create a plan on how you would operate If you lost internet for 24 to 36 hours.
These are all things we all need to think about it.
Major Outages will continue and they will affect our lives the more we depend on them.
