Avaya stands ready to support your network security, business continuity, and disaster recovery needs during the regular course of business and especially during events that can seriously disrupt your communications when they are needed most.
Avaya's Customer Focused Emergency Response and Recovery Team, along with field sales and services, have developed comprehensive emergency plans. They can coordinate the delivery and implementation of emergency repair materials, replacement equipment and emergency services personnel, to help restore your communications.
While Avaya is ready to assist, there are a number of proactive steps you can take with your communications solutions to prevent or minimize disruption to critical communications.
1. Save translations before the emergency event impacts the site. This will ensure that recent changes are not lost and speed restoration in the advent of damage to your system.
2. Secure back-up media so that translations won't be lost or damaged, thereby delaying restoration of your service. Take a copy of back-ups and any other information off site.
3. Print and store a current list configuration of your switches. If a new system is necessary, this simple precaution will save as much as four to eight hours of delay in starting the process. Product documentation, located on this Web site, explains how to list configuration for your system.
4. Consider powering your system down before the emergency event impacts the site. Electrical power surges before and after the emergency event pose the greatest threat to your system.
5. Consider moving your switch if the site is located in an area that may be exposed to damage from the emergency. The smaller footprint of today's systems makes this a possible option for some customers.
6. Review your safety procedures with all employees prior to the emergency event, if possible, and make certain you have an updated contact list to keep in touch. Emergency damage always creates the possibility of electrical hazards. All electrically powered equipment can present a hazard until restoration efforts are completed.

Disaster planning for major events and large populations is often absent, and the absence of communications planning can lead to major humanitarian consequences, such as delays and privation. Leaders in all sectors must work together to change that. Reveiw Helpful Information for the new models can be found that utilize temporary emergency roles for existing communications equipment and skilled personnel.

A good query consists of three things:
Enclose exact words or phrases in double quotes. Include plus (+) to require words, minus (--) to exclude words, and OR between words. i.e. forwarding OR coverage + "all calls"-- remote
Don't include "special" characters in your search (i.e. &, <, >, *, $, / ,\, ....)
The more exact the phrases are to the actual title or string of text in a document, the better the results
