Data Centre Loss of Fibre Circuit

10 May 2022, in Network, Data Centre

We are currently experiencing an outage on our Neos fibre circuit between our Bournemouth Data Centre and Tele House North .

This would have caused a momentary blip for those connecting to our Data Centre over this circuit while traffic moved over to our other circuits.

Customers should not consider the service at risk as we retain 2N redundancy to our Data Centre over our other fibre circuits at this time.

We have raised a ticket with the supplier and await their updates.

Update 15:45 BST
We would be shutting down the Neos fibre circuit in 15 minutes for planned engineering works by Neos Network on the circuit. Please see notification at the link below;

https://status.webwiz.net/network-announcements/neos-fibre-circuit-planned-engineering-works-10th-to-11th-may-2022_post711.html

As the circuit is presently down we are going to bring forward the maintenance window and place the circuit in to a shut down state now till tomorrow morning at 08:00 BST.

Traffic on the circuit has already rerouted to our other fibre circuits and we will maintain 2N network redundancy during the maintenance window.

Update 23:30 BST
Service has now been restored. One of the circuits multiplexer cards had become faulty and was replaced by Neos Networks. The replacement of the faulty part resolved the issue.
