Important works on our backbone infrastructure in Frankfurt is to take place on Wednesday night to Thursday (28-29/04) from the midnight. The intervention's goal is to move our equipments from AInterxion to Ancotel, the connection of new transits and the activation of new links to Warsaw. The aim is also preparing the ground for the establishment of our new fiber Paris <> Frankfurt.
Date: 2010-05-12 09:13:06 UTC The maintenance tasks on DECIX have been finished. It is always
pleasant to work with the DECIX team. Very serious and responsive.
The problem of the link 10G Frankfurt/Prague is the one left and which does not
come back up. We will have to make it more direct. This is expected.
And also for the Frankfurt/Zurick which has made a good surprise when going up again
after the maintenance tasks.
We finish networking the new 10G links with T-System, TPSA, Seabone ...
Date: 2010-05-12 09:12:30 UTC The new 2x10G of DECIX are up with the old IP.
The BGP sessions go up leisurely.
We wait for DECIX to move the old 2x10G to the
new switch in order to benefit from 4x10G.
Date: 2010-05-12 09:10:48 UTC We will cut off Decix then upgrade it.
Date: 2010-05-12 09:10:27 UTC The link Frankfurt/Prague does not come back up. The distance is very
important to mount the link in LR (we are at -17dB). We have modified
the network so that the traffic goes by Amsterdam/Varsovie/Prague. We will be
able to move the 10G directly on Ancotel.
The problem of DECIX is the only one left. It is not yet
ready for the addition of 2x10G on Ancotel (the switch on which we are connected
is full and we will have to move our existing 2x10G on a new switch, then add
those 2x10G). Once, we have 4x10G on Ancotel, we will change the DECIX IP towards that
of fra-1-6k. We push DECIX in order to fix this problem asap. We will certainly
intervene during the day.
Otherwise, the maintenance is finished. It went well. The fra-1-6k router
has been cut off. It will be recovered tomorrow.
Date: 2010-05-11 14:20:48 UTC TPSA is up. The session has been put back up.
T-System is up as well.
Date: 2010-05-11 14:18:44 UTC We have switched all the circuits of fra-1 to fra-5. The TPSA and T-Systems transits are those left to be put back up.
Date: 2010-05-11 14:11:53 UTC We are cutting off the DEC-IX port on Interxion for migration towards the new ports on Ancotel.
Date: 2010-05-11 14:08:49 UTC We are starting the maintenance tasks.
