Take two to upgrade a core network element. The issues encountered with some of the optics has been resolved and we are ready to proceed.

Planned Work

A number of end connections will go offline while the maintenance takes place. Once complete it is expected end connections will return online automatically. If this does not happen, then restarting the router is the first step to take.

The purpose of the work is to replace the item below which has reached end of life.

The new core network element below is the high performance replacement. Staff will attend and fit the new unit close to the existing one. Once operation is confirmed cutover will be performed. The network will be monitored closely to see that operation is as expected.
