TalkTalk Ethernet Outage [LD8]31/08/2020 13:04

Resolved [31/08/2020 22:47]

The root cause was TalkTalk maintained hardware failure affecting 1 Ethernet NNI of ours and 6000 other B2B clients. TalkTalk fault incident resolution states:

<-- snip -->
NOC monitoring identified an FPC10 (Flexible PIC Concentrator) failure at NGE001.LOH. This caused a total loss of service to approx. 6k B2B circuits from approx. 12:47 (31/08). The Core Network Ops team were engaged and their investigations found that the FPC10 had failed and could not be restored remotely. To restore service as of approx. 17:23 a field engineer attended site and replaced the faulty FTP10 with support from the core network ops team. This incident will now be closed with any further root cause analysis being completed via the problem management process.
