The Advantages of Colocation
We've included this little story about Cytel in order to beat the drum again about the importance of 4Ci (command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence) in any disaster. If you cannot communicate with your responders, you cannot recover. Moreover, nobody ever knows which communications media will survive after a given event. One sound bet, therefore, is to cozy up to a good, reputable collocation provider.

These facilities are generally well-hardened; almost without exception, they allow carriers to connect with one another under both day-to-day and emergency operations.

Incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) such as AT&T or Verizon
