Incident: faraday-nexus.dsl

Posted: Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 at 14:13 by Jamie Smith

We have experienced a loss of connectivity to some of our equipment in our Faraday  POP. Engineers are already investigating and initial diagnostics indicate a loss of power to the device. This will have effected a number of Broadband customers.

The device is now back online with sessions reconnecting, If your connection has still  not re-established it may be necessary to reboot your router.


Emergency Maintenance: Stepney Green – Faraday – Columbo

Posted: Friday, June 15th, 2018 at 16:36 by Gurinder Bansal

Monday 18th June 2018 20:00 – Tuesday 19th June 2018 03:00

During the above maintenance window, we will be undertaking work on core links between the above locations as part of ongoing network expansion.

No down time is expected and all precautions will be taken to avoid any disruption, however during this window all three sites should be considered at risk.

    This work is now complete.

Planned Maintenance: Faraday.core

Tuesday 10th July 2018 00:01 – 06:00

During the above window we will be replacing with a higher capacity router.

All services currently terminated in this location will be migrated on to the new hardware. This includes DSL, Leased lines and Pseudowires terminating at this location. Whilst actual downtime is expected to be no more than 1 hour, the full 6 hours may be required to account for any unforeseen issues.

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

    As a reminder please see the planned works for Faraday (Tuesday 10th July 00:01 – 06:00).

We are currently experiencing intermittent power loss to some of our equipment located with the Faraday POP. Engineers are already investigating and the issue has been raised to the colocation provider as well.

Further information will be provided as and when it becomes available.

Thursday 13 April 00:01 – 06:00

During the above window we will be performing a software upgrade and a reload of one of our devices at this location. This is expected to take approximately 1 hour, during which time directly connected customers will lose service. All other traffic will remain unaffected.

Affected services include DSL (IPSC and WBC) and leased lines terminated in this location.

BT 21cn/WBC Faraday Interconnect

Posted: Monday, September 17th, 2012 at 11:28 by Steve Lalonde

We are currently investigating a fault on the Faraday 21cn Interconnect.

  1. Steve Lalonde says:

    A fault has been raised with BT next update from them will be 12:45. We have also dispatched one of our engineers to cover any issues on our equipment.

  2. Wayne Hawtin says:

    The issue does appear to be related to a BT Major Service Outage. We will continue to push for further updates which will be provided when they become available.

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

  3. Steve Lalonde says:

    A BT engineer is now onsite investigating, no ETR yet.

  4. Steve Lalonde says:

    BT have located a fibre break between our rack and the 4th floor. Now waiting on additional BT engineer.

  5. Steve Lalonde says:

    We now have our own engineer onsite, unable to restore service as the fault is not in our equipment.

  6. Steve Lalonde says:

    Additional BT engineer due to arrive at 17:15

  7. Steve Lalonde says:

    Several BT engineers have been on site for a while now liaising with our engineer.

    Still no ETR

  8. Steve Lalonde says:

    Fibre break localised estimated 30 minutes to re-splice. We are hopeful this will resolve the fault.

  9. Steve Lalonde says:

    Fibre has been re-spliced, there is still unacceptably high loss on the link. BT now looking at alternate fibre pair for the section with the loss.

  10. Steve Lalonde says:

    Service restored users are reconnecting.

    Note: Some users may need to reboot their routers to reconnect.

  11. Richard Partridge says:

    An incident report has been made available for this issue. It can be found here.

Planned work:

Posted: Friday, January 15th, 2010 at 16:03 by Steve Lalonde

Monday 25th Jan 2010, 04:00hrs – 04:30hrs

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.
