We'll be connecting our router in Bristol back to our network core in London. Doing this will allow us to create private networks over the 2 sites for customers, more efficiently use our address space over the 2 sites and also re-introduce Corero DDoS mitigation.
Many thanks for your patience and support.

Following up from the PSU and line card issues with our router in London last week we're installing additional PSU' and an extra line card in our router in London.
Whilst we don't expect it to cause any issues, we're putting this here as an advisory notification.
Someone will be on site throughout the whole process monitoring and making sure if anything does happen that it won't be longer than a few minutes.
Once this is done we shouldn't have any further issues with this.
Many thanks for your patience and support.

We're currently experiencing another problem with a MPC line card within our Juniper MX router housed within our London hosting site which also occurred a couple of days ago for a couple of minutes.
We've got technicians currently en route to our London hosting site to take a look.
We have also got another MPC line card that was scheduled for delivery, and install today so that we could split our network over 2x 16 port line cards.
Apologies for the inconvenience on this, we will endeavour to do our upmost, as per normal to have this issue fully resolved by the end of today.
