Scheduled Maintenance
Planned Datacentre UPS Maintenance Aug 29, 10:00-17:00 BST
Our data centre provider has advised us that their UPS (uninterruptible power supply) manufacturer are due to carry out routine servicing of the UPS A Feed system on Tuesday 29th August.

The UPS will be in bypass mode during the service and the service contractor has stated no planned outage expected or required.

Ethernet Services that terminate in our Bournemouth POP as well as our primary 10Gb Wessex Internet backhaul will be considered 'at-risk' during this maintenance window.
We do not anticipate any outage based on our provider's information, however there is the risk due to critical live systems being operated on.

Wessex Internet operates with multiple backhaul circuits in case of issues, so we do not anticipate any outages for customers.

Monitoring - The network incident affecting Cheselbourne has now been resolved.

Both Wardon Hill and Cheselbourne POPs are now operational and we have seen customers routing via these POPs reconnect.

Early indications suggest this was caused by an frequency interference issue. This is not something that has manifested like this before. Additional work will be carried out to understand more about this to try and prevent a recurrence.

We apologise for any inconvenience this outage caused.

We do not have an estimated fix time, however we do anticipate full connectivity will be restored by dawn.
