This is what I've heard back from the folks at MegaPOP thus far regarding Seattle busy signals and other problems: >Robert, I will forward on to the Seattle engineer here, as it does >sound from the items you detail out below, that there is more >happening then just a potential capacity problem. > >I will touch base with him not only on the "near capacity" the >utilities report(and if it truly is resulting in a max port situation >and in need of additional PRI/equipment), but also what may be the >cause of the "Your call did not go through." messages. As you stated >below, capacity issues should not result in this type of recording. And... >Robert, >According to our most recent Network Status meeting held this past >Monday, I do not recall the engineer managing the Seattle location >reporting seeing a capacity problem in Seattle yet, but it was >reported that usage was climbing and *nearing* capacity. > >However, when I look at our "Port Utilization" utility that all of us >here have access to here, it certainly does appear to be close enough >(97.0%) that it very well could be maxing-out. That utility is a >"snap-shot" and averages, so anything in that range could be touching >in at 100% at times during prime usage hours (8 -10, as you stated), >causing intermittent busies. > >That engineer comes in today at 10:00am Central and I will most >certainly follow up with him to find out just when we will plan on >having equipment out there and when additional PRI that were >previously ordered, will be available. I will share with you later >today, whatever I am able to uncover from him. I will continue request frequent status updates and keep you all posted on what MegaPOP is doing to correct this condition.
