Network Outage Report

According to the QoS Regulation, all Service Providers shall provide the Authority with network outage reports whenever any outage occurs as described in the clauses below.

Critical Outages are defined as those affecting the entire network, the core of the network or greater or equal to (=>) 30% of the traffic. The condition includes a critical work stoppage during the customer’s normal working hours that affects multiple sites or Core Network Elements affecting functions of a customer’s business. See the QoS Regulation for more info.

Major Outages are defined as those affecting a part of the network (or the components of the aggregate part of the network), and influencing less than (<) 30% of the traffic.

Minor Outages are defined as those affecting individual sites, and/or components at the edge level of the network that do not interrupt service or performance. Examples of Minor Outages are those affecting BTS, trunk cable, or E1 transmission link.
