Planned Maintenance: Telford

Posted: Thursday, July 12th, 2018 at 13:55 by David Brewis

Sunday 15th July 2018 08:00 – 18:00

During the above window, Western Power Distribution will be conducting maintenance works to service the electricity substation supplying the local area. During these works, external mains supply will be disconnected to allow safe operation to all involved, in doing so our external generators will supply the Telford data centre allowing for continued and uninterrupted service.

We are speaking with the power company to obtain clarity as to the actual duration of works and will update if this becomes available.

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

Emergency Maintenance: DSL

Thursday 21st June 2018 18:30 – 1900

During the above window we will be completing configuration work on an interconnect to correct throughput issues for a small set of broadband users. As the configuration is applied, users are likely to experience disruption to service for up to one minute.

We apologise for the short notice of this works. Should disruption continue past this window please reboot your router before contacting support.

Planned Maintenance: DSL Platform

Posted: Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 at 16:39 by David Brewis

Wednesday 20th June 2018 01:00 – 06:00

During the above maintenance window we will be completing configuration changes identified during a previous maintenance. This work will allow for metrics to be placed on the broadband traffic facilitating the direction of traffic to be steered dependent on where best suited.

Once these works are completed, broadband traffic will be steered away from Entanet’s DSL platform in Telehouse to Interxion, with sessions monitored to evaluate the failover. After confirmation sessions have fully migrated, the DSL platform will be steered away from Interxion to Telehouse allowing to test the other direction. Once sessions have fully migrated over, resiliency will be restored across both locations.

No downtime is expected however DSL customers should be considered at risk for the duration of the window.

Planned Maintenance: Interxion3.core

Posted: Thursday, May 31st, 2018 at 14:17 by David Brewis

Thursday 7th June 2018 01:00 – 06:00

During the above windows we will be completing planned maintenance to upgrade our core equipment, interxion3.core.enta.net.

We expect all services currently terminated in this location to have a maximum downtime of 1 hour. Services include Transit, EWCS, Leased lines, Co-location, Wholesale handoff and Pseudowires. 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.

Prior to works, broadband traffic will be steered away from Interxion to lessen the customer impact and on successful completion the broadband traffic will be rebalanced between multiple locations.

On the proviso this all goes to plan, we will be moving ahead with works affecting Telehouse North,  the following day on Friday 8th June from 00:01 to 06:00.
