Emergency Work: Cardiff.core

Posted: Thursday, September 13th, 2018 at 14:19 by Gurinder Bansal

Friday 14th September 2018 13:00 – 14:00

During the above window we will be adding additional power equipment as an attempt to minimise further impact, whilst our supplier continues to investigate the occasional power disruptions at this location.

No downtime is expected however, all directly connected services should be considered at risk for the duration of this maintenance window.

At Risk: Bristol and Cardiff

Posted: Thursday, March 1st, 2018 at 09:26 by Richard Partridge

Our Bristol and Cardiff POPs are currently operating with reduced resilience, due to the failure of a core network link. The issue has been raised with our suppliers for further investigation. Further updates will be provided as and when they become available.

  1. Richard Partridge says:

    The affected core link is operational again however we have yet to receive an RFO from our supplier. Bristol and Cardiff should be considered at risk until otherwise notified.

At Risk: Bristol and Cardiff

Thursday 1st February 23:00 – Friday 2nd  February 08:00

Our supplier Virgin Media have advised that they need to carry out emergency maintenance on the previously faulty fibre from January 31st affecting our link between Bristol and Slough.

Due to this, traffic may be taking an alternative path and both Bristol and Cardiff cores are currently operating with reduced resilience.

 

Incident: Cardiff, Glasgow & Bristol Edge Devices

Posted: Monday, November 27th, 2017 at 09:32 by Jamie Smith

We have just experienced an unexpected simultaneous reload of our edge devices in Cardiff, Glasgow & Bristol. This resulted in a brief loss of service for directly terminated leased line customers.

Previous investigations suggest this was due to a bug in the IOS software on these devices. We had preemptively loaded new software onto these devices in preparation for a controlled and scheduled reload. These devices are now running the alternative software following this unexpected reload. We will continue to monitor these devices. All services are now restored.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Planned Maintenance: Cardiff

Thursday 19th October 2017 00:01 – 06:00

During the above window we will be replacing equipment at this site.

All services currently terminated in this location will be migrated on to the new hardware. This includes all customer transit, DSL, EWCS, wholesale hand-off and pseudowires terminating at this location.

All other traffic that would normally route through this location will take alternative paths.

Incident: Cardiff

Shortly after 10:00 we experienced an unexpected reload of the cardiff.core router which on first examination appears to be the result of a temporary loss of power. Directly connected customers would have experienced a brief drop in connectivity. Traffic passing through this router will have diverted across alternative paths. Connectivity to most services has been restored and engineers are investigating.

Tuesday 26th September 2017 00:01 – 06:00

During the above window we will be replacing cardiff.core.enta.net with a higher capacity router.

All services currently terminated in this location will be migrated on to the new hardware. This includes all customer transit, DSL, EWCS, wholesale hand-off and pseudowires terminating at this location.

All other traffic that would normally route through this location will take alternative paths.

At-Risk: Cardiff.core

Posted: Wednesday, 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.

Thursday 21st Jan 2010, 04:30hrs – 05:00hrs

During the maintenance window above the IOS on the router will be upgraded to resolve some configuration issues. This software upgrade will require a reboot of the router which should take approx 10 minutes to complete, during which all directly connected customers will lose connectivity.

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