  • Resolved

    We've seen no further drops - this incident has been resolved.

  • Monitoring

    To summerise, a change was done on one of the core backbone links at Stellium, there was an issue with this, and the change was rolled back. The change has since been reimplemented successfully.

    This is related to the installation of a new 100Gb wavelength between London and Newcastle.

    We'll keep this incident open overnight, and will confirm closure tomorrow morning - however it seems like the issue should not re-occur.

  • Monitoring

    We've spoken to the carrier we use for our circuits back to London and they're currently aware of an issue on their network. However, service resumed after around 10 minutes of disruption. We're currently speaking to their engineers to find out what's happened.

  • Investigating

    We are currently experiencing a network issue affecting our PoP at Stellium in Newcastle, due to an issue with backhaul to London. Our team is actively investigating the situation, and further updates will follow as we work to resolve the issue with them.
