At around 1:40am yesterday, September 15, 2018, one of the strongest typhoons to ever hit the Philippines, Typhoon Ompong (international name Mangkhut), made landfall in the province of Cagayan. Days prior, thousands of families were evacuated and innumerable assets were secured. The combination of commendable preparation, good fortune and immense blessing saved Cagayan from typhoon-related casualties.

The preparation and coordination works by both the public and private sectors helped cushion the impact of Ompong in Cagayan. Doing its small part within the Cagayan Freeport, LR Data made sure that its network assets are stable and resilient. It was business as usual for LR Data's partner locators within the zone as there was no network service interruption throughout the ordeal of Typhoon Ompong.

Through the years, LR Data has built a robust and fully redundant network inside and outside Cagayan. The stability and resilience of which can outperform most telecom providers in the Philippines. Even LR Data’s Network Operations Center, as well as its cybersecurity resources are redundant and manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week. LR Data has discrete access to multiple submarine and terrestrial cable systems, and direct access to Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other global data gateways. The company prides itself in low latency, high capacity, dedicated networks that are hardened with cybersecurity layers. This high performance network is at least at par with what’s available in the region and works best for demanding industries such as online gaming, streaming services, financial technology, and banking.

Aside from the hardware infrastructure, and network and cybersecurity protocols in place, the weatherproof and battle-tested Network Operations and Transmission teams of LR Data have been crucial in ensuring business continuity in spite of extraordinary conditions. Experience and specialized skill sets combine to complement best in class technology to deliver benchmark service levels. LR Data’s people, process and technology will always be of service to the locators in Cagayan Freeport and beyond.
