Re: DR
It is interesting that bandwidth is the key component here, more than switching and other aspects of infrastructure. I know that's simplistic, but a router at home, for instance, is more effective with higher bandwidth than less bandwidth because of, well...., the bandwidth. I wonder how much of the issue is truly aging equipment (the lifespan seems pretty short) or just reactive building, whereby one component can't be compatible with a legacy component, causing another change, and another change, etc.

Re: DR
The statement "Aging infrastructures are challenging to maintain, as components become rare or developers go out of business," seems to be ready for the lead in the pitch to move to the cloud. A pretty clear and compact messsage. Maybe that should go on bumber stickers? Oh, there are no bumper stickers...they're out too in the aging infrastructure of street ads!

Re: DR
@dcawrey yes, you are right as the upkeep cost will always rise up during life of the hardware... even with 1-2 years old systems  maintenence couls be high... most of the time rip and replace is only solution...

Re: DR
While the upfront costs of upgrading systems is expensive, it's harder to calculate the maintenence of older systems over time. That's why I think it's important to just rip of the band-aid and replace the very old with the very new.

Re: DR
Aha.. yah.. a CB radio setup would be a good backup... maybe you should also look into becoming a HAM radio operator, too! :P

Re: DR
Ah. Well in rural areas, the lack of a landline is really disconnected spot to be in.... Unless you have a satellite phone or something really exotic (HAM radio? CB?), there's not a lot of other connectivity options. Maybe someday when autonomous drones can fly 24/7 and beam down wireless internet anywhere....

Re: DR
@mhhf1ve in my case I live in rural area and when everything is down I could only relay on land line...

Re: Roadmap?
The lack of a timeframe is interesting.. because XO not too long ago prided itself on being able to deliver services in a predictable (and relateively short time frame) -- as evidenced by its "10 Gigs in 10 Days" slogan.. circa 2007.

https://web.archive.org/web/20160507015358/http://www.channelpartnersonline.com/news/2007/10/xo-offers-10-gigs-in-10-days-another-challenge-to.aspx

Hopefully, the Verizon acquisition doesn't hinder XO's competitive and aggressive deployment reputation.
