Avnet will lay on global Y2K 24-hour call centres over the New Year period. Business and IT staff will be on red alert for any Millennium bug problem stalking the industry from 30 December. The distributor's Year 2000 Command Centres, serving Asia, EMEA and the Americas, will monitor problems in the industry 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the company said. Staff will report all Millennium IT madness to the company's core centre in Phoenix, Arizona. That's providing their own networks and phones aren't down, of course. ® Related stories: The global guide to Y2K survival More Millennium madness Y2K bug eats Japanese PM's backbone Our tongue-in-cheek Y2k coverage
