Planned work: VoIP platform

Posted: Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017 at 12:48 by David Derrick

Wed 29 November 2017 08:00-09:00 GMT

During the above window we will be making changes to our VoIP platform to align with changes one of our suppliers will be making. This work has already been proved and our other supplier is unaffected so this is not expected to be customer affecting. No in-progress calls should drop.

  1. David Derrick says:

    This work was completed although it was necessary to restart some processes. Some calls may have dropped due to this. Monitoring indicates that calls are now completing as normal.

VoIP Disruption

Posted: Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 at 10:14 by Adam Heath

We are aware of an issue currently affecting some VoIP services.  We are investigating the issue and will provide further information once it is available.

  1. Adam Heath says:

    Our investigations have led to an issue being identified with a specific upstream carrier. Our engineers are in correspondence with the relevant carrier for more information, which we will make available once obtained.

  2. Adam Heath says:

    Further information attained suggests the root cause may be a power issue with an upstream carrier. It has been advised that there are engineers working to restore service.

  3. Adam Heath says:

    The affected upstream carrier has confirmed that a small number of services have been restored, but there is still a significant amount of non-functional incoming services. Work is continuing towards restoration.

  4. Adam Heath says:

    We have started to see inbound services recover, following a way to reroute numbers in bulk being identified further upstream from ourselves. Internal testing here against numbers previously reported to us, also confirms this to be the case.

  5. Adam Heath says:

    An incident report for this issue is now available here.

Planned maintenance: VoIP media servers

Posted: Thursday, March 31st, 2016 at 15:31 by Ben Bliss

Thursday 7 April 2016 10:00-15:00

During the above window we will be making additional changes to the media servers on the VoIP system. This is a continuation of the work carried out on the 31st March 2016.

We will work on each server in turn, removing it from the pool and waiting for its calls to complete before performing the work. It will then be tested before returning to the pool and moving on to the next.

Please note that since the system is designed to cope with server failure we do not expect any customer impact from this. In the event of problems we will roll back to the previous state.

  1. Ben Bliss says:

    The work is now complete. Additional maintenance will be needed at a later date, which will be announced shortly.

  1. Ben Bliss says:

    The maintenance was a success, but due to time constraints, further work is needed to roll the changes out across the rest of the media server cluster.

    This will be scheduled for a later date.
