The article discusses the use of Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) for disaster recovery and continuity of businesses. Conventional solutions involving extra phone systems and trunk lines to the standard Public Switched Telephone Network at a backup site are costly. VOIP allows businesses to install phones at any location where an Internet connection can be obtained. Internet Protocol phones and systems may be deployed across the Internet or Wide Area Networks allowing rapid recovery, while preserving the security and confidentiality of all phone conversations and information. In preparation, remote sets can be provided in advance to employees and phones can be placed on standby for emergency deployments or for extended absences.
