Planned Maintenance:

Posted: Monday, April 23rd, 2018 at 09:48 by Gurinder Bansal

Friday 27th April 2018 00:01-06:00

During the above maintenance window, we will be installing additional core equipment as part of ongoing network expansion.

All services currently terminated in this location will be migrated on to the new hardware. This includes all DSL, EWCS, leased lines and wholesale circuits at this location. Whilst actual downtime is expected to be no more than 20 minutes for each circuit, the full 6 hrs may be required to account for any unforeseen issues.

All other traffic that would normally route through this location will not be affected.

Planned Maintenance: Telford DC2 Equipment

Posted: Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 at 21:11 by Jake Turner

Tuesday 24th April 00:00 – 06:00

During the above window we will be relocating the below equipment out of DC2 in Telford and into DC3. Downtime for each device should be no more than 30 minutes at any point within the window:

  • pwan-diag
  • pwan-kikker.edge
  • pwan-tlf.edge

Please note that during this window the Mirada virtual machine used for troubleshooting will be unavailable briefly and whilst pawn-kikker.edge is relocated all PWAN devices will show as unreachable. This will however not affect the operation of PWAN devices and no downtime will be experienced as a result. During the move of pwan-tlf.edge some customers will experience a loss of connectivity to colocation in Telford from their PWAN. Individual customers will be notified separately if this will directly affect them.

At Risk: Telford-Dc2.core

Posted: Thursday, April 12th, 2018 at 00:46 by Jamie Smith

Telford-dc2.core is currently operating with reduced resilience, due to the failure of a core network link. The issue has been raised with our suppliers for further investigation. Further updates will be provided as and when they become available.

  1. Jamie Smith says:

    Our supplier have advised that this is in fact planned engineering work , however no notification had been received to advise of this.

    Work is expected to be completed by 06:00.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

  2. Jamie Smith says:

    Further to the most recent update;

    VM have come back to advise that this has now been escalated as a fault due to potential faulty fibre patches and possible faulty amp related to medium power work.

    VM have despatched engineers to site to Investigate the issue further and work towards a resolve.

    I apologise for any confusion as the previous update had been incorrectly advised by the supplier.

    Updates will follow in due course

  3. Jamie Smith says:

    The affected core link is operational again however we have yet to receive an RFO from our supplier. As such should still be considered at risk until further notice
