RE: Newedge Networks meltdown?
Statement from New Edge to Customers: ------------------------------------- Edger Customers and Partners, We are experiencing major network issues with our Alcatel Network Management System (NMS). Early last evening we had degradation in our primary NMS and we switched to our secondary backup NMS as per standard procedure. We then experienced similar degradation difficulties with our backup NMS. We have worked through the night on this and we have brought in Alcatel. Much of our network is stable. We estimate about 30% of our permanent virtual circuits (PVC) for customers may have been impacted. Customer affecting symptoms can take the form of performance degradation on a circuit or an actual outage in the form of failure to sync at Layer 3. We are now back on our primary NMS and we believe we have this situation stabilized. We are rebuilding our customer PVC's and the situation should improve throughout the day. We have added extra resources in NOC and our call centers. Our Service Level Agreements (SLA) call for 99.5 % up time and we have always far surpassed these SLA targets. This is the first outage of its type in the five year history of New Edge Networks. We are deeply embarrassed by this network outage and we apologize to our customers. We will do everything possible to fix this and we will communicate on the hour as we do so.

I had a DS3 go down with them last night, they said that a lot of their PVCs all showed active must had to be bounced to continue working, and they'd only know which ones were down if people called and told so.
