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
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.
