First, know your network, its key points, the geographic nature of the business and how disaster can happen. Second, understand where the network bottlenecks are positioned. Several options are presented to reduce bottlenecks such as: permanent alternative paths, coterminous circuits, packet switching networks. Third, evaluate equipment redundancy, people redundancy, outsourcing, and multiple carriers. A network is considered “a disaster waiting to happen” which management must support via a DRP.
