During the above window, we will be carrying out a non-service affecting reload to one of the line cards that part of our DSL platform terminates on, due to recurring alarms on the affected line card. These preventative works are to stop any potential service affecting problems occurring. The work will be carried out in 2 phases.

Phase 1: (Approx 14:30)

Cost DSL traffic away from Interxion DSL platform to Telehouse East DSL platform

Phase 2: (Approx 17:30 – 18:00)

Reload of affected line card

Once the line card has been reloaded and verified that the alarms are no longer present, traffic will be costed back to the Interxion DSL platform

Services should still however be considered at risk during this maintenance due to the loss of resilience whilst these works take place.

We apologise for the short notice of this maintenance notification

We are aware of an incident affecting some PWAN connectivity. Engineers are already engaged and are investigating.

Further updates will be provided as and when they become available.

    Reason For Outage: PWAN Connectivity

    Start: 7-Aug-2019 10:58
    Finish: 7-Aug-2019 11:13

    Impact: PWAN connectivity experienced a total loss of service (Primary and Backup) due to network loop affecting connectivity. Non PWAN connectivity was not affected.

    Root cause: Standard changes being implemented for a customer PWAN created unexpected impact due to pre-existing, redundant configuration on edge devices, triggering spanning tree to block connectivity to prevent a network loop.

    Additional actions:
    1. Edge devices config audit to check for, and if found remove, any redundant configuration under a maintenance window.
    2. Monitoring system event creation review to improve speed of identification of spanning tree activity.
