Planned Engineering works


[link to this post]
 
Hi
My router has just dropped its connection but maintained sync. I am on the aberystwyth exchange and have noticed here that there is planned maintenance on the exchange.

There will be a total loss of service whilst the ATM line cards are changed.


Does anyone know why they would do this? Im guessing its a bit hopeful its to upgrade the line cards to adsl2+ suporting ones?

Thanks

Says ATM cards not DSLAM/xDSL cards. Sounds like more to do with the backhaul links to the DSLAM/MSAN

Ahh, I think my eye's glosed over that. So, any reason why they would be doing that? New backhaul maybe?

recreational engineering to annoy insomniacs, perhaps.

But seriously, replacing a suspect card, increasing capacity of a link, adding more links, shifting some hardware to a new location, etc etc.

How accurate are the AAISP exchange listings?

When I key my phone number into the Zen outage tracker, I can see that BT have been working their fingers to the bone in my exchange since the early hours of 28th and will resume on 4th April. However, if I search for PW156065 on the AAISP page, it doesn’t list my exchange, though a nearby one is included.
