Problems for some PBX customers - update
Posted by Admin on 24 January 2018 11:42 AM

Dear Customer,

At 9:02am we became aware of a networking issue at one of our datacentres. At this time we raised an urgent P1 ticket with the data centre and began working on fixes with their engineers.

Shortly after this we began the process of migrating affected PBX's over to their back up instances at separate unaffected data centres.

It became clear that this was a wider issue that didnt just effect 1 data centre as providors accross Europe have neen impacted.

We are continuing to monitor the affected areas and will update any affected customers in due course.

Any affected customers who are still experiencing issues will be advised to reboot any phone or networking hardware to ensure they re-register at the back up instance.

We will update affected customers when we begin the process of moving them back to the primary servers.

No moves will be made until all monitoring clears as resolved.

Telehouse North Power Outage
Posted by Admin on 21 July 2016 10:12 AM

Dear Customer,

We are aware of a power outage involving equipment at Telehouse North this morning that is affecting many Internet Service Providers (ISPs), including BT.

We do not have any equipment of our own at Telehouse North, however as many ISPs do possess equipment at this location call quality and connectivity may be affected accordingly.

Engineers are currently working to resolve this issue, however until such time as power is restored customers may continue to experience call quality and connectivity problems. 

We will endeavour to assist as much as possible and our Support Team is fully aware of the issue. However, we recommend that customers contact their ISP for any further updates as engineers from BT and Telehouse are working on the issue at this present time, therefore your ISP will be able to provide precise updates.

If you have any questions whatsoever please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

Orbtalk Support

BT Nationwide Outage
Posted by Admin on 20 July 2016 10:32 AM

Dear Customer,

BT are currently experiencing a nationwide outage that is impacting some Orbtalk customers.

The BT outage has been caused by an issue with their routing of IPs. As a result, any Internet traffic that uses BT's IP network at any point is liable to be affected.

As approximately 90% of broadband customers in the UK use BT's network (either directly or by their ISP using BT's network), we understand that many of our customers may be affected by this outage, including by experiencing call quality issues.

We advise affected customers to please check BT's website and the BT Care Twitter page at regular intervals to keep abreast of events.

If you have any questions whatsoever please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

Orbtalk Support
