Dave: How do you know this?
Copilot: The temperature has increased over the past few days and is 30C hotter than other optical transceivers in this device, a condition that indicates a near-term failure.
Dave: What is the impact of this interface failing?
Copilot: The connection to “TRANSIT: Zayo” will go down.
Dave: Please schedule a P1 ticket to replace the faulty optical transceiver.
Copilot: P1 Remote Hands Dispatch: Ticket #98385 created in Jira.
Dave: Great. Now can you pour me a drink?
Copilot: I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.
