Disaster Recovery Communication

If you use wireline data services for your business or government agency and you rely on those services even in the event of a disaster, then Borealis Broadband should definitely be part of your Disaster Recovery and Preparedness planning.

An extension of our Business Backup Internet Service is our Disaster Recovery Communication service. 

This service is designed to provide your business or government agency an alternate data communication transport in case of a disaster as well as Rapid Restoration Service should the disaster also affect a portion or all of our network.

The Disaster Recovery Communication Service plan includes the Business Backup Internet Service as well as Rapid Restoration Service* and access to Satellite Backup for Internet Service in case our fiber transport to the Continental US is affected.

Contracts for this service are custom-made for your organization.  Please call us for details.

Borealis Broadband's network has some very unique qualities that make us the perfect partner for your Disaster Preparedness planning.  Here are some points for you to consider:

  We are completely wireless.  This makes restoring links in case of earthquake or other disaster very fast, assuming our network also sustains damage.  Some disasters such as floods or minor earthquakes that could damage the wireline infrastructure may not affect us at all.   
  We are completely independent.  Our network connects to our Tier 1 Internet provider directly at their facilities.  Everything else is owned and operated by us.  No other wireline services are used.  Satellite access to the Internet can also be made available through our network.  We are the logical choice to back up your wireline data services.  
  We offer Symmetric, Ethernet-like service.  This means that Voice over IP and Video Conferencing services would be immediately available through our network. Your existing IP network would plug and play.  In the event of a disaster, you will most likely want to get information OUT to the rest of the world, which makes our symmetric bandwidth capability a must-have.  
  An Extensive Infrastructure increases the chances that all or part of our network will survive a disaster.  That, along with hundreds of client radios around Anchorage, nearly a dozen Base Sites with multiple sectors per base site, increases the chances that enough facilities and equipment will survive even a major disaster to be able to provide immediate communication services.  
  We use Flexible Wireless Technology.  Because of the type of technology we use, we have the ability to rapidly establish transmission facilities on just about any tall structure.  This includes Towers, Buildings, even Telephone poles - any tall structure will do.  We've built transmission sites on Telephone Poles in less than two hours that are still in operation today, years later.  
  Local Loop Service Included.  As is standard with Borealis, your local loop service is included with the Internet service.  Therefore, you can use our infrastructure to communicate between your business or government offices with low-latency, high-capacity connections.  
  Extended Reach.  Our infrastructure can reach where others can't.  In the case of disaster, we can rapidly establish communication services to Field Locations.  This could be a Tent, Compound or just an alternate location.  Given the proper conditions, multipoint connections can be made up to ten miles, line-of-sight with our standard equipment.  Longer ranges are available with our specialized gear.  


* Rapid Restoration means that your location is prioritized for service restoration, in case a disaster affects your facilities or ours.  Rapid Restoration services are prioritized with the highest priority given to Emergency Service agencies.
