Seattle, WA, September 22, 2006 – Today Concord announces new network redundancy features designed to ensure continuity of fax communications in case of a catastrophic event that disables one of its data centers. This represents a breakthrough in comparison to typical disaster recovery network design, in that the new approach enables failover of inbound fax traffic from one data center to another, a process that is not achievable within the existing telephone network.
“Our R&D team has been working very hard with our technology partners and carriers to design a failover solution that would allow the continued operation of inbound fax services even in the case of a regional catastrophic outage.” said Christopher Moore, CEO and President of Concord. “We believe we are the first Internet Fax Service provider to offer that important functionality.”
“Especially post 9/11, large businesses have been looking much more closely at business continuity and disaster recovery requirements.”, said Brian Cohen, a NY based independent Telecommunication Services Analyst. “A solution that now allows seamless failover of an inbound fax solution has been long overdue.”
Concord’s new redundant inbound architecture is in trial now and will be available to all its customers by the end of this year.
