London to Manchester 10Gig Outage

Posted: Sunday, January 20th, 2008 at 09:53 by Steve Lalonde

Currently our London to Manchester 10Gig circuit is out of service for Maintenance, looks like no one spotted the notification 10 days ago. :(

Traffic is flowing over alternate paths and there is enough capacity to handle the traffic.

Here are the details of the work:-

Start Time: Sunday 20th January 2008, 08:00 GMT

End Time: Correction: Sunday 20th January 2008, 15:00 GMT

Estimated Impact:

Services could be affected for up to 7 hours. Services may suffer small outages during this window but should not be hard down for more than two hours.

Reason for Maintenance:

Excavation and repair damaged fibre duct that has become damaged due to building works in the location of the current duct.

Once the ducting has been repaired, a 2km section of fibre from the Bradley Stoke site will be externally spliced to a new splice enclosure on the Bradley Stoke Way. This will need to be pulled in and spliced.

    The circuit came back into service while I was posting the notification :)

    This is still at risk until 15:00 GMT today.

    Circuit is down again, I have moved some traffic that would normally use this link to take a path via London until the 10Gig is stable again.
