Maintenance details

Engineers will be replacing our ageing Core Routing and Broadband Aggregation devices within NextDC B2.

Broadband: Over the last several months, we have been replacing our ageing hardware across the country, the final stage of this is QLD.

The majority of Broadband connectivity will fail-over to NSW and have no customer impact, some Ethernet services may be offline during this outage but the expected downtime is to be less than 10 minutes in total.

Core Routing: Our Core Routing is presently partly done through a software based environment, the remainder through NSW. This is being replaced with Cisco hardware routing to bring this location in-line with the remainder of our network and being able to operate completely autonomously if it was to ever become an island.

Customers with IP Transit, Metro Ethernet and Broadband connectivity within NextDC B1 and PIPE DC3 148 Brunswick will experience a loss of connectivity for up-to 30 minutes during the outage window.
