Having supplier, physical and logical diversity options available to occupiers enables them to ensure they will not be caught out by any type of internet connectivity failure.
For landlords and developers, the value of introducing physical and supplier diversity is clear. Multiple connectivity entry points, a wide choice of Internet Service Providers and more than one mobile operator means that a building’s occupiers are offered a failsafe option if they want it. In fact, buildings that are WiredScore Silver and above give occupiers the ability to avoid an outage like this, as any building certified Silver or above will have both supplier and physical diversity.
Last week’s Optus outage certainly highlighted the critical importance of, and growing demand for, resilient digital connectivity. Moreover, with climate change, the risk to critical infrastructure is only expected to grow, as is the demand from occupiers for higher levels of resiliency. It is therefore no surprise that many organizations are now adopting a wider ESG+R strategy to put resilience at the forefront of their decision-making.
