A cut on the fiber network Numericable deprives thousands of users connecting to Paris
A simple fire in the infrastructure of Grenelle Bridge would cause accidental breakage of the optical fiber network Numericable Completel. Over 26000 Paris would lose access to the Internet and businesses have also indicated that they could not access the network of the operator. The most affected by this accidental interruption occurred last night zones are the sixteenth and seventeenth arrondissements of Paris, but also Neuilly-sur-Seine and Levallois-Perret.
The company Numericable said: "The work of restoration require the delivery and deployment of 300 meters of optical fiber. Rest assured that our teams welds are mobilized to restore such access as soon as possible. "A team of technicians is working so from the middle of the day to shoot over 300 meters of cable to reconnect the affected areas to the network. If all goes as indicated Numericable, the end of this cut should take place soon, around 22 hours...
The operation is not easy, because you have one hand to replace a very long stretch of optical fibers, each fiber and connect to the network one by one with special welds, which means in some areas hundreds of fibers simultaneously. Numericable apologized for the incident and respond to affected customers on his Twitter account this morning.
