Your Lumen transport service is ‘plug & play’ and is designed to function as soon as you are correctly connected to the Lumen demarcation. If you've connected to the demarcation and your service is not up and running, use this guide to troubleshoot.
Please note, the majority of issues can be resolved by self-diagnosis without needing to open a repair ticket. Analysis has shown that over 90% of reported faults actually relate to demarcation connectivity or cross-connects (customer patching).
If Lumen is responsible for patching but your service isn't working, please follow this guide before opening a ticket. If you're not sure whether Lumen is responsible for the patching, contact your account team.
Please follow the troubleshooting steps below.
If your service has been delivered to the Lumen demarcations and are you responsible for ordering the cross-connect, then you need to request final patch. If you are unsure whether you need a final patch, contact your account team.
Once the site landlord informs you they have completed the cross-connect to the Lumen demarcation, open a support ticket requesting to finalize the cross-connect from the Lumen equipment to your cable provider (and include the cross-connect cable ID provided by your landlord). This cross-connect is called a “final patch” and it is required in some locations because the site landlord doesn't have access to the cabinet/room containing the Lumen demarcation given in the handover document.
Once you submit the ticket, Lumen will send a field technician to your site to finalize the cross-connect from the demarcation to your cable provider (the final patch).
