Scheduled tor1 network maintenance - 12-Sep-2022

Post by porcupine »

Hi Folks,

Please be advised of the following maintenance window:

Maintenance Window: Monday September 12th, 2022 - 11:00pm - 2:00am Eastern time
Facility: Tor1
Affected Device(s): Fiber panel "818-Panel2"
Affected Customers: Colocation customers with fiber cross-connects to the Building Meet Me Room (BMMR)
Service Impacting: No - This notice is a precautionary notice only. We do not expect to see any outages as a result of this work.

Details: We will be physically relocating the fiber panel in question to a new adjacent cabinet which has been prepared specifically for this panel. The panel will be lifted out from the top of the current rack, and lowered into the new cabinet by PC staff, without disconnecting any of the fiber cross-connects.

This relocate is being performed, as we will be replacing the "B" row of open racks with cabinets to better meet customer demand. Since the fiber panel in question is installed in an open rack, it must be moved to one of the new cabinets to keep everything secure once the cage wall is relocated.

The relocate in question has been planned for quite awhile now, we've verified that all of the fiber cables should reach, and do not expect to see any major issues, or disruptions as a result of this work. Should customers experience any unexpected outages to external fiber cross-connects during this maintenance window, they should contact PC staff, or open a help-desk ticket immediately.
