LOS & PON flashing lights

Hi
Does anyone know what flashing LOS & PON lights actually means?
We have had several loss of connections in the last few days, where the LOS & PON lights just start flashing.
Then, later in the evening, everything just starts working again.
My guess is engineers messing with stuff further up the PON, but nothing to back this up with!
Thanks

Re: LOS & PON flashing lights

LOS - Loss of signal
PON - Passive optical network
I'd suggest that the flashing is an alarm state showing signal failure...

Re: LOS & PON flashing lights

that much I figured!
I'd wondered if it was a specific type of problem, or a common fault
