Monitoring
At 20:31 BST we saw the service between THE and ENF restored, light levels look the same as before the fibre cut and the ports are error free. Once we have assurances from our provider and seen a peroid of stability, we will put the link back into production and obtain an RFO in due course. EXN are disappointed about the amount of time this has taken to restore, and we will be raising this concerns with our provider. Reundancy to Virtus Enfield has now been restored.

Investigating
At approximately 22:33 today our fibre link between Virtus Enfield and Telehouse East went down. We believe this may be a fibre cut and we are currently raising the issue with our fibre provider.

All network services have successfully failed over to other paths, however the site should be considered AT RISK during this time.
