Planned Maintenance: DSL Platform

Posted: Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 at 16:39 by David Brewis

Wednesday 20th June 2018 01:00 – 06:00

During the above maintenance window we will be completing configuration changes identified during a previous maintenance. This work will allow for metrics to be placed on the broadband traffic facilitating the direction of traffic to be steered dependent on where best suited.

Once these works are completed, broadband traffic will be steered away from Entanet’s DSL platform in Telehouse to Interxion, with sessions monitored to evaluate the failover. After confirmation sessions have fully migrated, the DSL platform will be steered away from Interxion to Telehouse allowing to test the other direction. Once sessions have fully migrated over, resiliency will be restored across both locations.

No downtime is expected however DSL customers should be considered at risk for the duration of the window.

Thursday 7th June 2018 01:00 – 06:00

During the above maintenance window we will be fully diversifying the DSL platform, allowing for metrics to be placed on the broadband traffic. This work will facilitate the direction of traffic dependent on where best suited, allowing for failover and as an enabler for planned engineering works.

Once these works are completed, broadband traffic will be steered away from Entanet’s DSL platform in Telehouse to Interxion, during which, sessions will be monitored to evaluate the failover. Once confirmed the sessions have migrated, work will be completed to restore resiliency in Telehouse.

No downtime is expected however DSL customers should be considered at risk for the duration of the window.

  1. Gurinder Bansal says:

    During this maintenance window, we completed the configuration changes we set out to change, however we encountered some unforeseen issues. This prevented us from steering traffic away from Telehouse. As a result, resiliency in Telehouse was not restored.

    Another maintenance window will be scheduled to complete both works at a later date.
