Cincinnati Bell plans to perform maintenance on fiber optic cable located at Symmes Road and Route 4 Bypass. This could potentially affect the fiber network used to connect dispatch radio consoles to the radio system’s master site.

The maintenance is scheduled for this Saturday night (April 2nd) at midnight, going in to Sunday morning (April 3rd). Potential downtime is described by CBT as minimum, but it is unclear how long that could be.

Dispatchers: Should your consoles lose connectivity to the system, follow normal backup procedures. Review your BRICS Dispatcher Emergency Guide, particularly the ‘Console Failure’ section, to be familiar with these procedures.

Field Users: You should expect no disruption of radio service. This maintenance could affect dispatch consoles only. Dispatchers would revert to backup equipment were an outage to occur.

Contact the BRICS office with any questions.
