RESOLVED: VoIP Session Border Controller (SBC) switchovers today…
Service Restored

3/26/15 5:28 PM
Our vendor has successfully restored the Sesssion Border Controllers to proper resilient operation.  Staff has gathered appropriate event logs and traces for further vendor analysis to determine root cause. This incident is resolved.

We apologize for the inconvenience.


3/26/15 4:44 PM
At 3:50pm the active VoIP Session Border Controller (SBC) failed and the system switched to the other SBC.

Subsequently the newly active SBC developed instability that may cause VoIP phones across campus to become dormant for up to 5 minutes.  Upon recovery, the phones appear to function normally, but the instability may recur.

Vendor staff is engaged with Voice Services staff on an emergency basis to resolve this issue.

We apologize for the inconvenience.


3/24/15 5:05 PM
We have had 3 switchovers today of the redundant Session Border Controllers – 9:44, 15:54 and 16:41.  This is not normal behavior.  We have engaged the vendor and the situation is under investigation.
