Planned Maintenance - Programme of Works affecting the WBMC and Broadband Complete Networks at Preston WBC POSI Node

PMO REF : PMO-10436Service Area(s) : Broadband
Start Date : 26/04/2018 02:00Risk : High - There is a high chance of Impact
End Date : 26/04/2018 06:00Impact : High - Serious / extended disruption

Status : Degraded Service

Overview - BTW is investing heavily to upgrade its broadband networks to ensure that there is sufficient capacity to support current & expected bandwidth growth.

BTW plan to upgrade all of the hardware within the WBC Point of Service Interconnects (POSI) nodes that connect to the WBMC network. The upgrade will replace existing hardware with new hardware that has a far greater capacity and routing capability.

Unfortunately, there will be a minimal network disturbance across the WBMC & Broadband Complete networks with an expected downtime of between 20 to 45 minutes. The upgrade will take place between 2am to 6am, in the event that the upgrade fails there will be a roll-back plan in place to revert the service to its original routing by before 6am. A field engineer will be onsite during the PEW
