Users were on the phone and all calls suddenly dropped.  This didn't just happen at our office.  Happened at all offices (4 altogether).  All offices are in NYC.  Incoming calls would not ring at the desk phone but would ring on the app.  Unable to pickup incoming calls through the app.  Just got dead air.  Seems to be working now but I figured I'd ask if anyone experienced anything similar.  Phone service had been fine all day.

Thanks for the details. Can you clarify were you getting calls on the desktop app, or the mobile app?  Are the deskphones on the same network as the desktop app (softphone)?

They are on the same network.  Same gateway.

Is this causing voicemails to not send notifications (voicemails, faxes etc) via email?

Hi  Store ,  It's very possible that this could disrupt delivery of email. DDoS attacks can definitely impact email servers also.   One thing you might try is changing the email address to something different ie gmail instead of yahoo to see if they come through. Also inquire with your email provider to see if they are seeing issues as well.
