Mobilink Network Outage


#1

I guess some of you are aware - Mobilink was total out in Punjab yesterday from 10 PM till 4/5 AM in the morning.

here's the news - the outage was due to no fuel in generator; when light was gone, MSC lost cooling which burnt down the STP cards and they were of atleast 4-5millions :) The field supervisor was fired today ....

yup me :)

btw Blackberry services were working at that time - just voice & sms got screwed up.

That is amazing. Should Mobilink not at least have power redundancy spanning two to three generators? You would think the Pakistan government would push them to do so, given that they are so they are reliant on public communication infrastructure in emergencies.

no card was burnt (they only got over heated and ceased their operation) and no one was fired however the rest is true

Turns out there was a problem with my BlackBerry. Pulled the battery and put it back and now GPRS is working.
