MFS Outage 6:30PM PDT 4/18/97

I appreciated the information.

As a operationally orientated Engineer, I'm still in the position
to make a few decisions upon who I use for services. MFS is
a likely candidate to supply some local loops here and there,
and information like this may prove beneficial to my role here.

Additionally, someone may be sitting out there wondering
why thier network is down, or having problems.

IMHO, this notification was perfectly acceptable in this forum.

Uhm, since when is this

FYI: (7:30PM PDT)

Starting at approximately 6:30PM PDT, MFS's power
unit on their fiber mux located at the Digital Internet
Exchange is resetting every 30 seconds to 1 minute.

All MFS fiber facilities are down during the power
reset. This includes all MFS/Worldcom DS3 and T1
circuits entering the PAIX collocate facility.

The IX Operations staff (Digital Internet Exchange
Operations) believes that the problem is due to a
bad rectifier on the fiber mux's power rack.

We are currently waiting for MFS to provide a dispatch
to fix this problem.
