Power outages

It appears this morning that there have been a series of power cuts affecting large parts of Southampton, including various University campuses. Estates have had an army of electricians restoring power to buildings, and iSolutions have been bringing up our switches and networking equipment as soon as we can. Phones and networking equipment have been affected across campus, luckily, our datacentre has UPS’, which have kicked in and made sure our server infrastructure stays up!

More general information on the power cuts can be found on Scottish and Southern Energy’s website: http://www.ssepd.co.uk/CustomerService/PowerCuts/PowerTrack/

Update: Scottish and Southern Energy have confirmed this is due to a damaged cable on Burgess Road, and hope to restore stable service by midday
