So the (possibly faulty) port is now available to someone else? ;)

I was just thinking the same thing... unless they actually take note to repair that port some poor sod will get that port again at some stage.

I would like to think that the port will be noted as faulty, but Im not very hopeful.  As I said, he was so convinced it was not a port fault he said if it did resolve the issue that it was likely the changes made to liven the new port...

I'm going to chase up with the CTS folks about that and check to see what your old port was and see what can be done to block it.

Had a very similar issue, net speed died dramatically with instability, constant disconnections galore for a few days. Had the issue escalated to the complex team, port was changed by chorus, and voila.. instability disappeared immediately.

My mental picture maybe wrong, but I think of the physical connections in the cabinet much like a core network switch in that there are multiple cards each with x amount of ports on them, and then each port is configured to route to x destination via vlan or similar.

Im guessing theres at least 20 (?) or more ports so unlikely the card will be swapped out and all that can be done is it will be marked as bad (and disabled via software) but not physically removed?

Is that a reasonable assumption or have I got it horribly wrong?

Pretty much.

FYI: There are some pictures of ISAM's and line cards from the Telecom Exchange/Cabinet Tour from back in 2010 on biddle's blog:
