Emergency Fiber Maintenance BIT-1 - Equinix AM7

28-02-2023 00:00:00 - 28-02-2023 06:00:00

Urgency: Emergency
Affected services:
- internet connectivity
- customer wavelength on this path
Expected impact:
- internet traffic will be rerouted automatically
- customer wavelength will be disrupted for a longer period of time
Customer intervention required: No
Reference number: 184238


The DWDM kit in BIT-1 has a faulty management interface. As a result we're unable to properly monitor the device. We will replace the device with a spare unit in this maintenance window. As a result, all waves between BIT-1 and Equinix AM7 will be disrupted  for several minutes. Internet traffic will be rerouted via other paths.


This is a repetition of the failed maintenance from 17/02/2023 (https://bit.nl/r/3699/NaxdJj6u) which was reverted due to issues with the spare unit, and shall now be performed with a new chassis. All BIT and customer waves will be moved to the  replacement kit during this maintenance window.

The DWDM kit has been replaced successfully. All connections are operating as expected.
