I have a client who has a cold storage facility which has an automated
dialler on the temperature monitoring system. The line developed a fault
and it was noticed because it was also being used for ADSL.
The dialler has a green LED that lights when plugged into a phone socket
and that remained on. In addition, his ISP didn't see any problem on the
line. There was a fault at BT, but it must have been something quite subtle.
My client decided to look into having a daily test sms/call issued. I'm
not sure anything really counts as "working".
