Scheduled - Upgrade work to move to a different version of JUNOS software that is not affected by the bug.

We will gracefully move as much traffic as possible away from the device. There will be a few short spells of downtime for customers directly connected as we fail over the routing engines during the upgrade.

We do not expect the upgrades to take much longer than 20 minutes, however the device and services will be at risk for the full duration of the window.

Regards
Node4 Technical Support

July 30, 2017 1:15AM BST
Active - Engineers are currently on site work is now commencing more updates to follow.

July 30, 2017 2:59AM BST
Active - We have completed the upgrade of one of the routing engines.

This has been successful and we have now made this master for the MPLS PE device . Unfortunately due to delays outside of our control this has taken longer that we anticipated as such we need to extent the maintenance window to complete the backup routing engine upgrade.

We do no envisage any further outages following this.

More updates to follow.



July 30, 2017 3:28AM BST
Active - The second routing engine is upgraded and complete.

All services are showing normal operation.

We are completing final check before giving all clear.



July 30, 2017 3:37AM BST
Active - All services and routing returned to normal operation.

Emergency maintenance on the Wakefield ACI Platform
Posted by on 28 July 2017 08:30 PM
July 28, 2017 11:14AM BST
Scheduled - On Friday 28th July @ 20:30 Node4 Engineers will be preforming Emergency maintenance on the Wakefield ACI Platform.

There is slight chance of impact due to a potential chassis reload, however the platform is highly resilient and we expect failover to be around 5 minutes or less while Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols re-calculate. This will affect Internet connectivity and MPLS connectivity from the Wakefield cloud platform.

The platform will be deemed “At Risk” until Friday 28th July @ 23:30

If you have any questions please contact Node4 Service Desk

July 28, 2017 8:30PM BST

Node4 is proud to announce that it has become NHS’s Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) compliant.

This new achievement puts Node4 in a strong position to fulfil the company’s ambitious growth plans for this sector.

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) is a new data network providing a reliable, efficient and flexible way for health and social care organisations to access and exchange electronic information.

Node4’s public sector team delivers the most effective and flexible application of technology to optimise business performance across the industry including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations. Node4’s HSCN compliance enables its team to sell connectivity services to the health and care sector.

Vicky Withey, Compliance Manager, Node4 comments; “The HSCN allows the health and social care to transform patient care and services through greater connectivity, making data and information fully accessible to clinicians, health and care professionals and citizens. Node4 has successfully completed the criteria required for HSCN compliance, including meeting rigorous third-party standards. We are one of the handful of organisations to achieve this standard and I am pleased that the public sector team can grow this market sector.”

“Now that Node4 is fully HSCN compliant, we are able to grow our presence in the health and care sector. We are able to provide our connectivity services and HCS collaboration platform to end users; and help the NHS and other organisations alike with security infrastructure challenges. We can further build new relationships and enhance our key capabilities in this sector, particularly with our unique proposition being a leading UK IT and Communications provider with solely owned data centres,” said Paula Johnston, Head of Public Sector at Node4.

Paul Bryce, Business Development Director, Node4, adds; “The HSCN compliance enables us to continue to build on our success in the health and care sector and deliver high quality, reliable connectivity services and other technologies to customers in this area.”
