power problems yesterday (3/26/07) at Level 3 in Atlanta

I’m hearing from one of our carriers about a power problem at Level 3’s Courtland Street facility in Atlanta yesterday that took them completely off-line.

Anyone else hear or know anything about this event, if and when it happened? Any details?



The problem was reported to be at the Courtland Street gateway. The folks that reported it to me are on AC power and stated that both their A and B feeds went dark.

I have an Asterisk/IAX connection with one of their boxes there that reported about 30 minutes of no contact yesterday afternoon.

I don’t know about DC power but suspect it much less likely to have gone down. Still, it must have been something unusual to take out both A and B feeds of UPS AC…

I can confirm there was a power issue at ATL1 yesterday at about 2:15PM EST. What I was told was that there was a main breaker that flipped that may have been caused by a surge, but they never went to generators. I have no official details beyond that but they were down for about 30 minutes from what I could see.
