Blue Ridge Communications, one of the nation’s most successful communications networks, has recently come under fire after a study revealed that the network had a failure rate of just 7%.
This figure is very low compared to the other major communications networks that are often cited as the best in the world, such as the US National Telecommunication and Information Administration (NTIA), which reported an average response rate of about 30%.
Blue Ridge’s failure rate has been called into question by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which said the failure rate had “no basis in fact”.
Blue Ridge was also criticized by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for failing to meet its commitment to the agency to meet the agency’s national standards for the performance of its Blue Ridge Networks (BRN) network.
In response, Blue Ridge said the agency had not followed up on its “overwhelmingly positive” comments about the BRN network.
“Blue Ridge Communications has a very high response rate in this market and is a leader in the market,” Blue Ridge CEO Scott Luskins said in a statement.
We continue to look for ways to improve our network.” “
The industry has made some good progress on the network and we appreciate the many people who have helped improve the network.
We continue to look for ways to improve our network.”
However, there has been criticism of Blue Ridge for not implementing its network improvements in the same manner as other major networks.
According to a recent study by the Institute for Excellence in Journalism (IEWJ), the BRNs in the US are not as effective as other communication networks because of a lack of communication standards.
“Communications standards in the BRNS do not provide the same level of protection as those in other networks, particularly the US-based networks,” IEWJ said in its report.
“For example, it is not clear whether a BRN is a standard-based communications service, or a communications service with an established standard that is not supported by existing networks.”
In response to criticism that the BRns lack standards, Blue Rock Networks, the company that owns the network, said it has improved its standards and will continue to do so.
Blue Ridge also said that the failures reported in the IEWN study were due to human error and not due to poor network performance.
“To our knowledge, there have been no failures of any sort associated with the Blue Ridge BRN,” Blue Rock said in the statement.
The IEW report also said Blue Ridge had “an exceptional track record in meeting its communications standards”, adding that “despite the large scale network deployment, the network has consistently been well tested and reliable”.
Blue Rock has not responded to requests for comment.
Blue Rock was criticised for failing its network, however, by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
In February, DHS announced that it had suspended its contract with Blue Ridge because of “serious deficiencies” with Blue Rock’s communication infrastructure.
The DHS said the network’s failure rates had been “inaccurate and exaggerated”, and had “substantially affected” its ability to communicate with its customers.
In its statement, DHS said it was “reviewing the network” and would “continue to work closely with Blue Mountain to address these issues”.
The DHS also said it had not yet found the cause of the failures.
Blue Mountain Networks said the DHS’s suspension was due to “serious shortcomings in Blue Ridge communications infrastructure” and that the DHS had not conducted a full investigation.
Blue Rancher Networks said it did not have a contract with DHS and that Blue Ridge “did not report to us the failure rates of the Blue Mountain network”.
The Blue Mountain Network, however said that it “is continuing to work diligently with DHS to address this issue and to ensure that our communications network can be delivered at the highest quality.”
The DHS has also said there was no indication of a security breach.
Blue Ranch Networks said in February that the failure was “an unfortunate occurrence” but said it “would have been possible to detect and prevent the failure and have the network fully operational”.
The report by IEW J also found that Blue Rock failed to follow up on several recommendations made by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) regarding its BRN and that “blue ridge had not done a thorough assessment of its network”.
