AT&T Boosts is European Disaster Recovery Resources

AT&T is expanding its pan-European Disaster Recovery resources with the addition of increased technology, equipment and manpower. Currently, the company's disaster recovery resources in EMEA include a dedicated 650 square meter warehouse located in the UK, a 14-meter articulated trailer, a custom-built flatbed truck to house two fly-away disaster recovery units and a new control and command centre. The NDR technology trailers and containers are specially designed to mimic the technologies present in the AT&T network. AT&T plans to add a third fly-away unit later this year in EMEA. The latest enhancements to AT&T's resources in EMEA will allow the NDR team to deploy recovery equipment within 24 hours.

With its planned investment this year, AT&T said it will have invested $7.5 million since 2006 to extend its disaster recovery resources in the EMEA region.
