Most fiber infrastructure in the U.S. is buried underground within a few feet of the surface. What is not buried is usually mounted on utility towers, exposed to the elements.
This kind of fiber infrastructure, though robustly built, can still be affected by severe weather. Thunderstorms and heavy rainfall can cause flooding and damage to underground fiber, while high winds and hurricanes can damage towers and other communications equipment. With power outages lasting from minutes to days, and sometimes weeks, there can be a high cost to businesses. Disruptions can be also be caused by human error.
These can be network operation mistakes, or construction work and repairs accidentally damaging underground fiber and other infrastructure support. Cables can also be accidentally cut or poor decision-making can occur at fiber facilities, which can lead to power outages. Though rare, these incidents can and have occurred, which can affect an organization’s ability to operate.
Other potential disruptions come in the form of intentional attacks whether from cyber attacks over networks or physical attacks on key communications facilities such as telecoms plants and data centers.
It is vital for businesses to have a back-up plan to anticipate any of these scenarios. It is important to consider factors such as geography, some of which are particularly prone to severe weather, and industry, some of which are high security targets.
