Our fiber link Lille <> Brussels will be suspended on 27/07 due to the movement of the cable linked to roads construction's works. Time to be confirmed.

The violent disconnection caused some overcharges on vss but the routers returned back to normal without our intervention. Restarting did not cause any disconnection. We detected another problem thanks to this intervention.
All of this lead us to notice that vss should be moved and replaced by something else. Simply, Ralebol.

These tasks are going to disconnect 3 important links:
Roubaix/Amsterdam is going to be rerouted via Roubaix/London/Amsterdam
Roubaix/Francfurt is going to be rerouted via Roubaix/Paris/Francfurt
Roubaix/Bruxelles has not rescued. It will be down. peering that we have in place will switched automatically to london, amsterdam paris and francfurt.
It is really a test of our backbone which has not been designed for this kind of problems. We have grafted it this need while waiting to change the routers (in September).
