Unexpected service disruption affecting IVR calls - Restored (at risk)


Update (RESOLVED ): 08:42

Call quality is now back to the usual standard and all IVR services are now once again stable although at risk. An 'at risk' period is standard procedure after service disruption whilst services continue to be monitored . 

We believe that the root cause of the issue was due to an unexpected side affect of the planned firewall maintenance carried out last night. The hardware upgrade and server cycling caused connectivity issues between our master file server and our SIP server cluster leading to the QoS issues experienced this morning.

Our engineers reacted to this as soon as this was noticed and all links between the file server affected and the clustered SIP servers have been reconnected which has resolved the issue.


Our team will continue to investigate the issue in order to further improve procedure in the future. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
