2007 Q2 — Boston, Massachusetts
NDR's 2Q disaster recovery exercise began on Thursday, May 17, in Boston, MA and continued through Thursday, May 24.
The NDR Operations Team worked an extended shift on May 17, beginning with trailer positioning and ending with T3 cabling between the trailers. Technology turn-up and testing was completed between Friday, May 18 and Monday, May 21. On Tuesday, May 22, the team hosted employee tours of the site in conjunction with the AT&T Networking Leaders' Forum. On Wednesday, May 23, the team hosted visits from customer groups participating in the Boston AT&T Networking Leaders' Forum.
The exercise tested NDR's ability to recover the service provided by a Type 1 network office. The drill also incorporated an AT&T COLT (cell on light truck) into the recovery complex.
