If any capacity metrics reach a pre-defined threshold, typically >60% of maximum capacity for a sustained period of time during Business Hours, then an immediate review will be undertaken on that element service to determine if an increase in capacity is required.

ensure there are multiple options available should an increase be required.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Availability – Cloud Contact Pro
The amount of time a platform is available (in production) - 99.5%+
Approach to resilience
In order to ensure bandwidth and availability, West has made large investment for voice and data interconnectivity, and use multiple carrier grade platforms to ensure maximum uptime. This includes mirrored high availability session border controllers with automatic failover (without call interruption) with geographic diversity of routes to different data centres.

We have real-time voice call routing across a minimum of four telcos per country for telephony services, so should a phone call fail to terminate with a primary operator we will terminate it with another transparently to our customer. We have multiple resilient connections to our telecoms operators including direct and indirect connections to multiple points of presence to ensure continued service delivery, with nodes for voice in Europe connecting in London, Manchester, Reading, Kingston, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Dortmund and other locations.

West is an ISP in its own right with RIPE-allocated IP address network ranges which we host over five Tier-1 ISPs. We float this range of IP addresses across them all providers using BGP and HSRP standards for high availability and automatic rerouting of customer traffic in the event of a failure with a single provider.
Outage reporting
The Support Portal is an invaluable resource of information in which you can log and escalate support issues, view current issues and read updates, notify us of product improvements you would like to see made, access a knowledge base of solutions to common problems, access product help and support documents as well as training videos.
