VOIP Service Outage


2019-09-09 15:58:49 - Resolved


2019-09-09 15:58:49
We are seeing a problem with VOIP services which may impact some customers. Updates to follow.

Services are restored.

Issue: SIP/VoIP services involving call registration and inbound/outbound calls to handsets Date and time of incident: 09/09/19 14:45 Duration: 23 mins approx. Description: At 14:45 we were alerted to an issue where customers were unable toreceivecalls and were also unable to make outbound calls. A P1 (priority 1) ticketwas logged and initialinvestigations showed that the issue was external to our core network which was fully operational. We then raised P1 tickets with the relevant carriers and suppliers for support.A routing issue was identifiedby one of the carriers within their network,which was causing traffic destined to some of our public IP ranges to be blackholed. Once identified, the routing issue was resolved by the carrier at approximately 15:08 at which point traffic was observed to be flowing normally. Further investigationon the part of the carrier revealed a softwareissue on a core router which caused a chain of events that then blackholed our traffic. A support ticket has been opened with the hardware vendor for further comment, however the informationreceived so far indicates that the issue is not expected to recur.

Microsoft Cloud Platform Resolution Issues


2019-08-29 17:58:48 - Open


2019-08-29 17:58:48
At 15:45 Fastnet Engineers became aware of an issue causing limited availability to Office365, Azure and other Microsoft cloud-based platforms. The cause of the issue has been identified as existing within Microsoft's DNS infrastructure. We have ascertained that a certain node within Microsoft's high-availability DNS cluster was resolving incorrect IPs for Office 365, Azure and related services. While this node continues to advertise incorrect IP addresses, we have resolved the issue by manually specifiying other hosts to use for DNS resolution of Microsoft-related services. Access to these services was resumed at approximately 17:00.
