The city faced a major setback when recently a fiber optic Internet cable disrupted in Alexandria slowing internet connections. The incident has brought to light the need of having a superior disaster management for the IT ecosystem. Whether it’s a BPO, a firm or household, internet is the fastest way of communication and very much needed in our day-to-day life. The recent disruption of fibre optics Internet cable at Alexandria was a major setback to businesses and people alike as many struggled with the slow internet connections. Two transcontinental, undersea fiber optic cables are believed to have been damaged off Alexandria in Egypt after they were presumably hit by the anchor of a merchant vessel. Although the internet connection is up and running in some parts of the city, it has brought to light the need for having an advanced back-up system.
