Canadians and Canadian businesses experience many different emergencies like power outages, floods, forest fires ice storms, tornadoes, public health crises, blackouts and forest fires. You can prepare your business with a Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Prevention (DP) plan. The NEWT Managed PBX Solution, due to its advanced Hybrid Architecture, provides unparalleled fault tolerance. In the event of specific/local issues, such as loss of network connectivity or power, which would take a traditional PBX offline, the NEWT Managed PBX features that are hosted on this redundant core infrastructure continue to operate normally.
When the power goes out, does a business really have to be out of business? Even for a few minutes? Can you afford to be out of business if the area you’re in is suffering from severe weather but your customers are not?
We say “no”, because with each NEWT Managed PBX Business Phone system installation, it has an Uninterruptible Power Supply or UPS. The UPS helps protect NEWT’s hardware (Router, Modem, Switch, ANA Appliance, etc.) and the PBX from damage due to power surges. While customers can provide their own UPS, NEWT offers an optimized model by Eaton positioned to handle the total power draw and desired backup power run-time minutes, and it will come with a new battery with a maximum lifespan.
The UPS also provides backup power to keep their business phone solution live during a power failure. Meaning, despite a business’s electricity being off line, they are still able to communicate and service customers.
