NERO will be upgrading the firmware on the NERO Optical Backbone
platform during the next regularly scheduled maintenance window Monday,
August 29, 2011 between 0300-0600.

Please Note: The start time for this maintenance window is earlier than
normal to make sure all operations and testing can be completed.

This upgrade will allow installation of hardware for new circuits and
additional monitoring.  The upgrade process will individually impact
each 1GigE circuit for 10-15 seconds twice as the firmware is reloaded
on each card.  All affected NERO Backbone IP links have redundant
connections and traffic will route around quickly during these events.
Direct Ethernet connected organizations will experience the traffic
impact for each event directly.

If you have any questions and/or concerns, please contact the NERO NOC at:
