TeleContinuity announced it was granted a Type II Carrier License from the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. Effective as of Feb. 28, 2008, the license will enable TeleContinuity to provide its survivable telecommunications network to commercial, residential and government organizations throughout Japan.
"The licensing of TeleContinuity's backup telecom system by the Ministry shows that telecommunications continuity is of critical importance for the nation of Japan,” said Taka Ito, MD of TeleContinuity's Asia Pacific and Middle East Operations. “With the launch in Q1, 2008 of TeleContinuity's Japanese Service, we are seeing unprecedented demand for survivable backup telecommunication services throughout Japan and the Pacific Rim. Recent disasters have focused corporations on the necessity of business continuity planning and disaster recovery, especially the critical role of maintaining telecom-continuity.”
TeleContinuity, recently participated at the ITPRO Expo 2008 at Tokyo BigSight in conjunction with its in-country strategic partner ECOSS. Additionally, Michael Rosenberg, Executive VP of TeleContinuity, was invited to speak on the subject of “maintaining telecommunications continuity during emergencies and disasters,” at the 12th Annual Earthquake Technology Exhibition in Yokohama, Japan.
