Root Cause Analysis
Our telephone service provider experienced degradation in one of their services that allows Zendesk Talk to accept, decline, or hang up calls, making it difficult for requests to pass from their systems to the Talk App.
Our engineering teams investigated, but were unable to mitigate ongoing issues for Talk customers. The issues with the communication protocol causing service degradation for our telephone service provider were resolved to restore normal functionality to Talk.
Our teams are improving the monitoring for and investigating notification options for the Talk call console.
