Posted: February 24th, 2017 at 09:19 by Iain Beveridge

Friday 24th February 2017  10:30am – 12:30pm,

During the above window and following on from the previous NOC post (http://noc.enta.net/2017/02/incident-birmingham-3-power-loss/) we are going to undertake the installation of replacement equipment within our Birmingham 3 site. The power should be considered at risk while we work on installing a new UPS and transfer switch to restore and also improve the power redundancy within our rack.

Further updates will be provided when work is completed.

Emergency Maintenance: VoIP platform

Posted: February 22nd, 2017 at 16:46 by Adam Heath

Wednesday 22nd February 2017 23:00 – 23:30

During the above window there will be some emergency maintenance work performed on the VoIP platform. Users may experience some disruption initiating calls or a disconnection of any call in progress. We apologise for the short notice of this work, however in order to ensure the number of users affected is at a minimum, we are performing at a time when call volumes on the platform are typically very low.

We are aware of a potential problem with our Edinburgh POP.  This will affect any services which connect directly to our core network here including broadband and Ethernet.  Initial investigation indicates this may be a reboot of the device, however we will advise further once more information becomes available.

  1. Adam Heath says:

    We are continuing to monitor following a reboot of the Edinburgh core router earlier today. Engineering resource is being deployed to the POP tomorrow for further investigatory purposes. We would consider connected services to be at risk until this has taken place.

  2. Adam Heath says:

    Our colocation provider in Edinburgh has confirmed that an issue has been resolved with a provided UPS which serves our equipment in this location. We no longer consider any previously affected services to be at risk.

Potential VoIP Disruption

Posted: February 17th, 2017 at 12:47 by Adam Heath

We are currently aware of a potential issue affecting some VoIP services.  We are currently investigating and collating examples.  We will provide further information once it becomes available.

  1. Adam Heath says:

    We have restarted a process on one of our VoIP servers and are now monitoring for any further issue. This issue should have only affected a small proportion of any calls placed due to load being spread over multiple servers.

At-Risk: Cardiff.core

Posted: February 15th, 2017 at 14:06 by Richard Partridge

Due to multiple link failures within the network at present, cardiff.core should be considered at risk. Engineers are already working on restoring redundant paths.

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

  1. Richard Partridge says:

    Following a period of monitoring, cardiff.core is no longer considered at risk.

Incident: Birmingham 3 Power Loss

We are currently experiencing a loss of power within our Birmingham 3 point of presence. This is causing a loss of service for a small number of directly connected leased line customers.  Affected customers have been contacted and advised directly.

Engineers are currently investigating and already have resources on their way to site to continue their investigation. Further updates will be provided as and when they become available.

  1. Mark Yardley says:

    Power has been restored to the affected customers. However, replacement equipment is required to restore fully redundant power to this site. Further updates on the progress of this work will be provided as and when available.

Incident: Telehouse East Satellite Device

We are aware of an incident in Telehouse East which briefly affected a small number of customers. The incident looks to have been caused by an unexpected reload of a satellite device. Services affected include Ethernet and DSL.

All services should now be restored and further updates will follow.

If you still have an issue with any individual circuits, please power cycle the device before contacting the support team. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Telephone System Issue

We are aware of a problem with our telephone system and are currently experiencing difficulties making and receiving calls.  We are working with our provider to ensure functionality is restored at the earliest opportunity.

  1. Adam Heath says:

    Functionality to our telephone system was restored a short while ago. We are continuing to monitor from our side.

Planned Maintenance: Interxion

Posted: February 1st, 2017 at 15:52 by Jake Turner

Thursday 9th February 2017 00:00 ~ 06:00

During the above window we will be replacing interxion2.core.enta.net and migrating customers off of interxion.core.enta.net onto a higher capacity router.

All services will be migrated to the new router, we expect downtime of approximately 1 hour during the window.

Affected services are:

All customer interconnects ( Transit / EWCS / Wholesale handoff / Pseudowire ) terminating at interxion.core.enta.net and interxion2.core.enta.net.

Traffic that would normally be routed through this equipment will be routed via alternate paths.
