Resilient communications, i.e. the reliable and secure operation of telecommunication networks, have come to play a decisive role for the economy and society.
Increasing digitisation of all business processes and the corresponding data flow forces corporations and agencies to make highest possible network availability a prime focus subject in their risk analysis. Studies have shown that the costs for a network outage can easily amount up to €1 million per hour. The size of a company does not matter, as it may affect suppliers, customers or business partners who may also suffer from such damages indirectly.
Business continuity management requires implementing very safe IT solutions, ensuring high availability network infrastructures by providing redundant routes. Therefore, the traditional concept of relying on a single, centralised network provider has to be challenged by corporations and agencies.
High network availability, as well as shortest possible recovery times, require redundant network connection operated in combination with an efficient ‘second (and third) way’. And many experts agree that an appropriate and efficient ‘second way’ at economical prices can be ensured only by technically and geographically independent communication via satellite.
