Planned Maintenance: Upgrade of 2 x 10Gbps blades in telehouse-east.core.enta.net

Posted: Thursday, May 29th, 2008 at 16:55 by Neil Watson

Friday 06th June 2008, 00.00hrs to 06.00hrs

During the maintenance window specified above we will be upgrading 2 10Gbps blades in the telehouse-east.core.enta.net router. We will perform the work in a controlled fashion, completing individual blades at a time. Users directly connected to these blades will suffer a small period of downtime whilst the work is completed, however this is not anticipated as being greater than 30 minutes. Other users may experience some routing instability during this time.

We will be contacting customers who will be directly affected and apologise for the inconvenience.

Planned Maintenance: telehouse-east.dsl.enta.net

Following on from recent issues with our DSL service it is necessary to replace telehouse-east.dsl.enta.net which terminates users connected to Central Pipes 1 and 6. This work will impact users of our DSL network during the times specified above and may require us to rebalance the Central pipes following on from the work. We are currently planning to minimise the effects of the work by moving the fibers in a controlled fashion and will look to ensure the minimum amount of downtime possible. This work will also involve the move of several LNS routers.

We apologise for the problems and inconvenience that this work will cause and wish to reassure you that we will do everything possible to complete the work in the speediest time with at little disruption as possible.

    This work was finished inside the maintenance window. Traffic levels on all 6 central pipes are well balanced and no additional balancing work is required.
