Emergency Maintenance Notification GB/LON02 (SN-20200505-2)

Created on Tuesday 5 May at 14:07 UTC
Resolved on Thursday 14 May at 15:12 UTC.

Issue Summary

Please be aware that we require an Emergency Maintenance Window tonight at 23:15 UTC (00:15 BST Wednesday 6th April) to fully resolve an outstanding issue from service notification SN-20200505-1.

As a result of the network instability caused by the issues in the service notification above we have identified an issue on a router in GB/LON02 which requires a line card reset.

GB/LON02 global routing is currently running at a slightly reduced capacity due to the line card issue; layer 2 services will not be affected.

We estimate a period of disruption over 15 minutes, until 23:30 UTC (00:30 BST) during this window.

We will provide an update here at the start and end of the works.
