We say "no", because with each NEWT Managed PBX Business Phone system installation, it has an Uninterruptible Power Supply or UPS. The UPS helps protect NEWT's hardware (Router, Modem, Switch, ANA Appliance, etc.) and the PBX from damage due to power surges. The UPS also provides backup power to keep their business phone solution live during a power failure. Meaning, despite a business's electricity being off line, they are still able to communicate and service customers.
A UPS provides protection against power inconsistencies and continues to provide power in the event of a power outage.
A UPS provides backup power when you need it, ensuring that your phone system remains operational during power outages. It's an essential component of a
Business Continuity and Disaster Prevention Plan. With protection against power surges and minor power fluctuations that can damage your critical communications hardware, a UPS is a vital component of any phone system deployment.
House fires, floods, power outages, and even catastrophic earthquakes - whatever the disaster, the official Canadian Red Cross Be Ready app gives users instant access to the information needed in order to prepare for different emergency situations and to take action when a disaster strikes.
Working closely with the Weather Network, the app features an alert system and the ability to monitor and track weather developments, allowing users to prepare their homes and families for disasters.
What happens if my internet goes down? Because of the design of the NEWT Managed PBX Phone System, local connectivity issues will not affect your customers trying to reach you. The calls are answered by an auto-attendant that resides in the core NEWT voice network, and are routed to your PBX. In the event that there is a local condition that effects the ability of your PBX to connect with the NEWT Managed PBX core network, calls are simply routed to a pre-configured "offline" number (like your cell phone) or they will follow your pre-established Find Me Follow Me call forwarding rules if enabled.
This tutorial reviews how to utilize the Remote Voice mail Access feature so that users have the ability to retrieve voice mail when not in the office.

Disaster Recovery is a "Must-Have" Case Study
Last month we covered how Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Prevention (DP) are major concerns into today's business environment. Key functions of the system are distributed across multiple redundant aggregators. In the improbable event of any one failure, the NEWT Managed PBX seamlessly connects to a redundant server within the hosted core. That means in the event of a local issues like a cut data line due to construction or a power outage, which would take a traditional PBX offline, the NEWT Managed PBX continues to operate normally.
