AT&T suffers router outage in Chicago
AT&T incurred a two-hour router outage this week involving IP services traffic routed through the provider’s Chicago backbone routers.
According to a statement from AT&T to its customers, the problem occurred because OSPF (open shortest path first) “network statements were mistakenly deleted during a routine configuration update to our backbone routers.”
AT&T network engineers reloaded the OSPF information and then rebooted the routers in order to restore the service.
