Unfortunately, still not resolved. This morning Vocus updated their status page with note saying still not resolved. Our contacts within the NOC have now disclosed third party equipment manufacturer albeit there's no public acknowledgement. We are told to expect an update after 2:00pm.

Our upstream carrier now finally acknowledged this incident as a business critical. We now are receiving hourly updates. It appears from what we are now being told the issue possibly relates to a third party equipment vendor.

IMHO: Unfortunately the delay in acknowledging this outage reflects a culture within Australia ISP's where ground level personnel have a tendency to hide or worse deny known issues reflecting a preference to junior NOC personnel.
