For customers with impacted Inter-Datacenter VLAN’s we have implemented a temporary solution to transport their traffic over another part of the network. These customers have been informed and operational again.

Eurofiber has confirmed the outage and their update from 15:56 is as following:

“Eurofiber is currently experiencing cable damage in the Sittard-Geleen region. Our engineers are taking measurements to locate the location of the damage.”

As they don’t have located the damage yet, we don’t expect this outage to be solved in the next couple of hours.

No further services are impacted by this outage so we wait for their recovery work to progress.

We keep you updated.

Dear Customer,

Since 13:12 we experience loss of light on our dark fiber link from our supplier Eurofiber. This outage has impact on the link from our datacenter to one of our regional POP’s.

As a result of the outage you might have experienced short packet loss on your internet connection. This because of rerouting traffic over our second link and rebuilding the BGP table for some of our peerings and transit links. There is currently no further impact on our internet traffic ór cloud environments.

Customers who are using an IP-VPN might be affected by this outage as Inter-Datacenter VLAN’s aren’t available. In this case, users can connect to their cloud environment through a public internet link as a fallback scenario. Customers with a redundant link aren’t affected.

We are waiting for more details coming from Eurofiber’s NOC. As soon as we have more information, we’ll publish an update.
