WASHINGTON (CN) – The Federal Communications Commission requests information on the ability of broadband communications networks to withstand natural disaster.
The FCC is exploring potential measures to reduce network vulnerability to failures in network equipment or severe overload conditions.
The agency seeks comment broadly on the ability of existing networks to withstand physical damage, including whether there is adequate network redundancy. It also seeks information on the extent of survivability of physical enclosures in which network elements are located, and on severe overloads.
