Suddenlink Communications has enhanced its phone network in West Virginia and North Carolina with equipment from Nortel to continue service in the event of a catastophe. Nortel’s Communication Server 2000 geo-survivable configuration will split switch equipment across two locations. The benefit is that if a disaster, such as a hurricane or fire, were to affect one location, the switch equipment at the other location can take over without affecting any active calls or reducing the network’s existing capacity.

Suddenlink plans to enhance its entire network to be 100 percent geo-survivable by early 2010. Suddenlink serves approximately 1.3 million residential and commercial customers in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, North Carolina, West Virginia, and elsewhere.
