BCNET – CANARIE Network Status – Dec 30 Update

From: 00:53 PST Friday, December 26, 2014
To: ongoing

Reason: A train derailment near Banff has caused a fiber cut to the
primary BCNET and CANARIE link to Alberta. Work is proceeding
on repairs although it is slow due to the location, bridge
collapsing, and extreme weather.

Effects: All CANARIE and Research Network routed traffic automatically
transferred to backup links. There may be some congestion
during high use times.

The directly impacted lightpath circuit users have been receiving
regular updates on progress including the following organizations:

Cybera
ECONET
IGENI
Neptune
NRC
RDC
Triumf
WestGrid

Contact: Please contact the BCNET Network Operations
Centre at 604-822-1348 option 3 or noc@bc.net
when network problems are experienced outside of
a maintenance window.
