T-Mobile US apologises for network outage caused by fibre circuit failure

Wednesday 17 June 2020 | 09:18 CET | News
T-Mobile US CTO Neville Ray said the recent network outage experienced by the company was due to a leased fibre circuit failure, from a third-party provider in the Southeast. The redundancy failed and resulted in an overload situation that was then compounded by other factors, resulting in an IP traffic storm that spread from the Southeast and created capacity issues across the IMS core network that supports VoLTE calls.
