We have been advised of planned network maintenance by one of our primary transit providers (Adapt) This work is due to retirement of access41.lon2 and the need to move the network equipment into new core cabinet within Goswell Road.
We have been advised works will start at 20:00 and continue on until 04:00 on the 16th. We take multiple feeds from adapt for transit and have been advised of service disruption while these are physically relocated to the new device of up to 20 minutes. Although we take multiple redundant feeds, we have been advised of disruption due to network re-convergence on there side.
Our network is comprised of multiple redundant routes to different carriers. Should we loose our Adapt link for any reason then traffic will automatically re-route with minimal disruption.
This work wont affect phone services as these route in to our network via interdependent private interconnects unless you connect in to our network via a 3rd party connection. If this is the case you may need to restart your handsets after the maintenance works has been completed.
UPDATE01 – 16/10/2015
This work completed without issue from our supplier. Our network reacted as expected and re-routed traffic where required.
