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.
