Wednesday 28 Sep 2018 – widespread/cascading telco failures


Multiple telco carriers have affected widespread outages and degradation of services via their failover links, affecting Internet/Data and Voice services – across QLD, NSW, VIC and SA. The issue first presented at 12.15pm and the worst impact appears to have been resolved by 1.15pm – however Mach expects it to take much longer for underlying cause(s) to be resolved or worked around where no links to any services (that impact Mach or our customers) are impacted.

Mach detected the issues and tracked the associated impact on our customers via our 24/7 Enterprise Monitoring Platform and we have been relentlessly following up throughout and since to get official responses from carriers we see are affected.
