Network Disaster Recovery


NDR Satellite COLT deployed at the Oroville, CA dam in February 2017

Prior to the World Trade Center disaster, the NDR Team had never been fully deployed (AT&T has never lost an entire central office). On September 11, 2001, AT&T activated the NDR Team for its first full-scale disaster response. The team and the recovery equipment arrived in northern New Jersey early on September 12. The recovery equipment was positioned and turned up to receive service fifty-three hours later.

NDR has provided its equipment and members of the team in response to smaller scale problems affecting the AT&T Network. Those partial and precautionary deployments have included responses to fires, flooding, an earthquake, a gas line explosion, and a train derailment. The NDR Team has also provided emergency communications support for a variety of humanitarian relief efforts.
