Update: BCNET – CANARIE Fiber Outage – Mar 8-10 2015

From: 10:13 PDT Sunday, March 8, 2015
To: 22:30 PDT Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Reason: A train derailment near Lake Louise cut the fiber services
between Vancouver and Calgary. Personnel were on site to
repair the track and fiber.

Effects: The majority of services to the CANARIE Research Network
from Vancouver are rerouted on alternate paths. Direct
lightpaths without alternates were impacted on this segment
only including

Cybera (to Vancouver)
IGENI
Neptune
NRC
RDC
Triumf (5G circuit)
WestGrid

a maintenance window.
