Our dark fiber provider has informed us about an urgent maintenance occurring today between Steenbergen and Rotterdam due to bad optical values.

They will be performing this during the day. The connection may be interrupted but as we are setup redundant, our other connection will take it over.

Their message is:
"Wij ervaren sinds gisterenmiddag een hogere demping op het glasvezeltraject tussen Steenbergen en Rotterdam. Aangezien de waardes sinds vanmorgen verder zijn verslechterd zijn wij genoodzaakt om met spoed metingen en reparatiewerkzaamheden te laten uitvoeren door de leverancier van deze glasvezels.
De kans is dus aanzienlijk dat het traject Steenbergen > Rotterdam in de loop van de dag voor enige tijd niet beschikbaar zal zijn. "

Translation:
"Since yesterday afternoon we have experienced higher values on the fiber optic route between Steenbergen and Rotterdam. Since the values have deteriorated further since this morning, we are forced to have measurements and repair work carried out urgently by the supplier of these glass fibers.
The chance is therefore considerable that the Steenbergen> Rotterdam route will not be available for some time during the course of the day."

Update 2019-04-09 15:05 CEST:
The maintenance done by our darkfiber provider has been completed and the line is fully functioning again.
