IDA has launched a full investigation into the fire at SingTel's Bukit Panjang Exchange on Wednesday
The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore or IDA says it has launched a full investigation into the fire at SingTel's Bukit Panjang Exchange on Wednesday.
It says it will take appropriate action to prevent it from happening again.
While the operators and affected parties were able to pull together resources in a concerted effort to restore services, IDA says it's nevertheless a serious incident affecting many consumers and businesses.
Under the Telecommunication Service Resiliency Code, operators are required to ensure that the design of their networks and services are resilient to service outages.
And when outages do occur, to ensure that they restore the services expeditiously.
The IDA has completed a review of the resiliency of the mobile networks of the three mobile operators in areas such as network design, technical processes, business continuity planning, and infrastructure.
It will continue its review of Singapore's telecommunications infrastructure, looking closely at the systemic resilience in all critical parts of our infocomm infrastructure.
The findings will be captured in the new audit framework.
The IDA will work with all operators to enhance resiliency of the infocomm infrastructure and minimise disruption to consumers and businesses.
