Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

"Where is your backup plan and process for having no mobile service? Landline???"

The engineers working for my business are mobile workers and rely on their phones to receive their jobs. Not all of the sites they visit have WiFi. Please enlighten me on how they are supposed to use a landline to receive their jobs?

Read the Ericsson report, and was going to post, but beaten to it. 

 

An expired certificate, now that has been the undoing of many a company, and good to see Ericsson owning up to the issue, and acknlowedging that they have dropped the ball. 

Having decommsioned many IT services, i can tell you there is always something you dont expect to happen that happens, or something interlinked that no one knows about until it goes ****** up, and falls over. 

 

I think the back office engineers who keep the lights on at o2 and keep the network going will need a well deserved large drink, as do the CS staff taking [Removed] off customers who want to rant for the sake of it...

Current Phone: Motorola Razr 5g
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World

No data and not registered on network. Shambles think it’s time to change provider.

That link to the ericsson press release is interesting.
Critical node required a software update?
Someone gonna get a shoe-in for missing that!

Emergency calls only again.

 

Update on software issues from Ericsson does not really provide much information and seems to be playing the issue down "network disturbances for a limited number of customers".  An expired certificate does not take 11 hours to replace, then faulty software is being decommissioned, but how did this end up on the SGSN's in the first place?  Guess we will have to see once RCA is complete.  Will be interesting to see if they release to public.

How are they supposed to receive the text if they aren't receiving any texts?

They aren't keeping it running. THE NETWORK IS NOT RUNNING.

Wow, doesn't take much. Make sure your new network has good coverage and zero issues in the next two years. Oh, wait....?
