Scheduled Network Maintenance Wednesday 2nd September - Friday 4th September
Posted by Bob Woolley on 01 September 2020 03:58 AM
Dear Customers,

As part of our ongoing network upgrades and maintenance we will be performing hardware replacement on our redundant core routers in Brisbane.
During this maintenance window individual devices will be replaced, we do not anticipate any interruption to network traffic during this time. Due to the topology of our network we anticipate that you will see brief periods of routing changes and small changes to site latency during this window. These upgrades are being performed by Host Networks senior technicians and also vendor support technicians who will be assisting with the upgrades.

If you are using our Dedicated servers, Cloud servers, Shared co-location or Web-hosting your service will not be affected due to Host Networks redundant network topology.

If you use BGP routing to connect with AS4851 (for eg co-location customers), it is important that you check your network configuration to ensure that you are using more than a single BGP session with Host Networks (AS4851). This will ensure that your services remain online throughout these scheduled works. Only one router will be worked on at any one time. All maintenance works will be performed outside of core business hours to minimise the effect of these changes.

Host Networks are able to confirm received routes or any other technical details for your BGP sessions, please contact our NOC team (simply reply to this notification) if you would like to perform further checks.

Live updates for the start and completion of each upgrade event will be posted on our @HostNetworks twitter account.

Devices affected:
- Brisbane Router 1 (BNE1-RTR1)
- Brisbane Router 2 (BNE1-RTR2)

The works have been scheduled as follows:

Services affected: BGP Sessions with Host Networks AS4851

Start Time: Wednesday 2nd September 8PM AEST (GMT +10)
End Time: Friday 4th September 2AM AEST (GMT +10) 

Kind Regards,
Host Networks NOC
