For telecom companies, downtime is disaster. The network going down means customers lose their voice and data communications until further notice. Productivity ceases, since transactions can’t be processed. Critical applications go dark. Security becomes a concern as threat surveillance collapses. It’s a nightmare that can have a lasting impact; just consider the havoc that ensued when airline Virgin Blue’s network went down for 11 days in 2010. Losses were in the tens of millions.
