Emergency Maintenance – DSL platform

Posted: Monday, June 18th, 2018 at 17:54 by Neil Watson

We are aware BT are performing emergency works affecting a limited number of service aggregators spread across several nodes on our network. A small percentage of customers on each node will be affected and will experience an outage of up to ten minutes.

The works begin tonight at 23:00 until 06:00 and are scheduled to run for the next two nights from 00:01 until 06:00 until Thursday morning. The work is essential for ongoing and improved capacity management on interconnects delivered to Entanet. Apologies for the short notice in relation to the work. Any affected customer should reboot their equipment before calling support as this should resolve any unanticipated residual issue.

Tuesday 08th May 2018 23:00 – 23:59

In the above window we will be undertaking an emergency reload of our redbus-sov core router. This is a pre-emptive reload in order to mitigate software related issues being observed on the device. Further work on this device will be required and will be scheduled and communicated in the normal manner.

All services terminated in this location including leased lines, wholesale hand-off, transit and EWCS will be affected. All other traffic that would normally route through this location will take alternative paths. We anticipate no more than 20 minutes downtime during the reload.

We have identified an issue with one of the routers in front of our cloud platform that could be causing a small amount of packet loss for some customers using our beta VoIP product. We will be forcing a failover to the standby router as an emergency resolution to the incident. This failover is not expected to be service affecting, however, the beta VoIP platform should be considered at risk during this window, until confirmation that the change has completed.
