Having recently moved to a commercial ISP after enduring several years of the RM/LEA network dropping out occasionally without explanation I was surprised to receive a couple of emails today:
I have accepted their "sincerest apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused" Start of Outage
: 31-05-2012 09:50:01 End of Outage:
31-05-2012 09:50:04 Total Downtime
: 0d 0h 0m 03s Outage Overview:
A fibre link within our London network experienced a brief loss of signal, consequently impacting
services. Impact Level:
Services hard down for 3 seconds.
For 3 secs !. Our LEA team wouldn't event pick up the phone if it was down for over half an hour !!!

You are privileged, we recently had an outage of over 15 Hrs after a BT engineer inadvertently reprogrammed a switch at the exchange.
It took the ISP that long to determine the fault was actually at their end after spending most of the day trying to blame our network or equipment!
Eventualy after 6 weeks of complaints and threats to cancel the service we got £700 compensation for the days outage.
Thats what a 99.99% SLA does for you.

Indeed. The fact that our LA couldn't offer an SLA or offer out of hours support put them out of the tender.

I saw that email this morning, did make me smile not sure if anyone would have noticed, but I'm not going to complain about more information!
Having been on Vaioni for coming up 18 months, now, they have always been excellent about warning before planned downtime or explaining afterwards, and they are genuinely improving their reliability as well.

It wasn't even their fault
LiNX had fitted new Juniper kit at 6am yesterday.
A few hours later, LiNX had massive broadcast storms. It DDoS'd itself out of the sky.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Juniper = fail.

Its not Juniper that have failed... It's the guys configuring the kit that fail.

It's like I always say... "It is not enough to succeed. Others must fail."

The email mentioned was from Vaioni, cos I got it as well. Unless other ISPs had a similar downtime for the same reason.

Yes. Our ISP is Vaioni. They have provided an excellent service, and this wasn't even their fault.

Zen as had an outage for a while yesterday which was a peer down in London - i guess it was all related.

No, Juniper *is* fail. It's turgid crap and always has been. Buggy software, memory leaks, it's always been a nightmare - unless it's improved drastically.
I rate Dlink over Juniper. That's how bad it is.

I rate Dlink over Juniper
I'm sorry but I strongly disagree with your view on this, Seriously DLINK over Juniper? maybe for home use yes but commercially no.
