MINOR Closed VoIP and SIMs
AFFECTED
VoIP and SIMs
STARTED
May 02, 11:57 AM (20¼ days ago)
CLOSED
May 02, 12:05 PM (20¼ days ago)
DESCRIPTION
One of our upstream carriers have call issues. We've routed calls away from them as much as possible, but this may still affect some inbound calls. The symptom is unexpected call rejections or audio issues. They're aware and are working to fix it as soon as possible.
Resolution: One of our upstream carriers reported: at 11:04 hrs BST the call handling units in one of our nodes started to behave unexpectedly, causing some audio issues and call failures. We are investigating some unusual traffic received at that time. The units were restarted starting at 11:22 hrs BST at which point traffic quickly restored to normal. The remaining units were fully restarted by 11:44 hrs BST when we were back at full redundancy.

MINOR Closed TalkTalk
AFFECTED
TalkTalk
STARTED
Apr 27, 10:10 AM (25¼ days ago)
CLOSED
Apr 28, 06:46 PM (24 days ago)
DESCRIPTION
We've see a few TalkTalk ADSL/VDSL lines drop and reconnect this morning. This was caused by a power alert on a network card on a device in TalkTalk's network that routes L2TP traffic in Telehouse. The card reset itself and re-routed traffic causing a small number of lines to drop their PPP and reconnect a few moments later.
Resolution: Two separate incidents within TalkTalk's network caused a small number of our customers to drop their connection and reconnect moments later on Saturday mid-morning and Sunday early morning.

MINOR Closed AA Services
AFFECTED
AA Services
STARTED
Apr 23, 05:30 PM (29 days ago)
CLOSED
Apr 23, 08:49 PM (29 days ago)
DESCRIPTION
There is a routing problem affecting access to some of our services, eg our website and L2TP service among others. We're investigating.
Resolution: This was caused by a third party internet provider, with whom we have been in talks with about them providing us some transit and had provisionally configured some of their routers to allow us to announce our IP blocks through them. We had not got to the point of actually setting up the service though. However, one of their routers malfunctioned and got in a state where it was re-announcing our IP blocks to some of the internet which meant some of the internet was sending traffic bound for us to them. We mitigated some of the problems by announcing more specific routes and also got in touch with the provider who promptly fixed their router.
