Root Cause Analysis
This incident was caused by an error in our Talk partner’s service that connects the customer’s call with the agent’s call.
To fix this issue, the affected service was disabled by our Talk partner, and they spun up a new data cluster to manage new call requests. We started to see reports of recovery, and continued to monitor until full recovery was observed.
