BCNET backup routing test for VICTX1 – Sunday August 9, 2009 06:00-07:00

From: 06:00 Sunday, August 9, 2009
To: 07:00 Sunday, August 9, 2009

Reason: BCNET has implemented a solution to provide layer3
connectivity between BCNET member sites in the case
of a failure on the ORAN network.
In the case of such a failure, traffic that is normally
routed over the ORAN will now be tunneled over the
commodity Internet back to the next BCNET router.
This solution has successfully been tested between most
sites, except for Victoria. During this maintenance
window BCNET staff will test the backup solution for

Effects: The 10G link between VICTX1 and VANTX1 will be brought down. All Layer2 (vlans) traffic will be impacted.
All routed traffic is expected to fail-over to the backup
tunnel. Should this not work then VICTX sites will lose
connectivity to the Oran. Affected vlans:
-UBC Distributed Medical School Program
-WTS Video Conference Vlan
