Inmarsat – Service outage and degradation – EMEA

26. Juli 2021 - 23:07:02 CESTVERÖFFENTLICHTMailversand: 2021-07-26 23:35:03

We would like to notify you of a full service outage and signi­ficant service degra­dation expected on Tuesday 27 July 2021. 

L‑Band services operating on Inmarsat’s EMEA satellite will be affected. 

The degra­dation on EMEA has been traced to a specific signalling processing module and a high-level recovery approach has been planned by network engineers.

Inmarsat anticipate the following sequence of events on Tuesday 27 July: 

10:00 UTC:

E&E services, including Inmarsat‑C, will be moved from EMEA to the contin­gency confi­gu­ration on adjacent satellites. 

12:00 – 17:00 UTC:

The payload recon­fi­gu­ration action will begin. The EMEA satellite will remain in operation during this activity, however end-users can expect signi­ficant service degra­dation and poten­tially full service outages during this window.

Once the recovery work has concluded, a reload of the satellite filter confi­gu­ration will be performed which will cause a full service outage on EMEA for appro­xi­m­ately 1 hour. 

When the EMEA satellite is fully opera­tional, E&E service confi­gu­ration will be normalised. 

Timings and durations are best estimates from Inmarsat and are subject to change. Further alert notifi­ca­tions will be provided.
