In preparation of our new transit and private 1Gbps interconnect to Zen Internet we will be removing all static routes for 3rd party providers and completing a fail-over test prior to the interconnect going live. Once the circuit is handed over to Structured Communications we will create a further out of hour’s maintenance window to bring up the session and complete further checks.
Where a client connects to us via a 3rd party connection not managed by Structured Communications, you will see your traffic revert back to normal paths via Level3 / Adapt.
Due to future network planning and peering we have withdrawn the policy of using static routes.
The above works are expected to take around 10-15 minutes and 2 x 30 seconds blips may be seen while traffic re-converges over our other upstream links.
