From the Publisher:
In cases such as earthquakes or floods, telecommunications systems are likely to have all their information destroyed if the network is not designed and managed properly. This book, the first of its kind, provides accurate, accessible and relevant information to empower managers and technicians to think and act strategically, to develop plans effectively and to make decisions quickly to save their own and their company's interests. The disaster management fundamentals are studied in broad detail, leading to the concept of contingency planning and its application in the fields of telephone, data, computer, television and broadcasting networks.

? Includes numerous case studies contributed by leading telecommunications companies, including the fire damage caused by El Ni?o in Taiwan and the Salem Express Red Sea Ferry crisis

? Includes coverage of legal and safety issues

? Offers both a technical and a material perspective to the topic

This topical and highly practical text would prove to be a valuable reference resource for operating engineers, technicians and design engineers in Telecommunications, Networks or Broadcasting. The comprehensive descriptions of the theory, enhanced by the many practical illustrations mean this text would also be essential reading for IT managers and recovery practitioners, as well as postgraduate students of Electrical Engineering.
