Unfortunately, this upgrade did not go as smoothly as anticipated.  One
of the linecards on ptck-core2-gw did not reload smoothly during each of
the reboots necessary for the code upgrade.  This failure primarily
affected the Bend Hub, WOU and NWAX.  The card returned to service for a
short period this morning and then crashed again just moments ago.

NERO will be working as quickly as possible to get a replacement card in

Bend Hub, WOU and NWAX connections are currently down.

All other services are in working order.
