Level 3 intends to carry out internal maintenance within its network. This has been classified as ESSENTIAL. The nature of this work is to perform a Network Element software upgrade. Level 3 will Upgrade BB2 ALU 7950 routers to code level SROS-14.0.R5-1 This will fix 100gb/10gb uplink error and a p-chip false alarm error. This will also bring us up to date with Vendor code level recommendation.
During this window we expect to loose our Level3 peering as it requires a reload of the affected router. Traffic will automatically re-route across other paths on our network.
We have been advised by Level3 that they will be replacing a line card between 23:00 on the 28/09/2017 & 02:00 on the 29/09/2017. This work will affect our 10GB interconnect with them as it involves the physical removal of hardware and re-termination of our fibre. Traffic will be automatically re-routed across other carriers during the works and limited impact is expected however traffic paths will change.
This work is complete
We have been advised by one of our wholesale DSL providers that they will be upgrading backhaul capacity within Telehouse North on Monday the 11th September starting from 21:00 continuing until 06:00 on the 12th.
We have been advised that this upgrade work may affect broadband (DSL and FTTC services) that are delivered to ourselves via Telehouse North. DSL sessions we will be automatically re-routed via Telehouse East in the event of disruption. Users may suffer multiple PPP drops during the above window.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused
