Abstract

The four articles in this special issue focus on communications recovery and resilience. Communications recovery and resiliency is a topic of great concern in current times as disasters have taken a greater toll on society. The current COVID-19 pandemic has made us more dependent on communications networks and this has increased the premium placed on technologies and its operations. Communications networks must be resilient, in support of various technologies during business disruptions, disaster recovery, and pandemic events. Recovery and resilience are two sides worth exploring here: 1) the needs and challenges with recovering from disasters of all types, and 2) how to enhance the resiliency of communication networks to provide better support in these difficult operations.
