BCNET VANTX Maintenance July 1/07

From:      07:00 July 1, 2007
To:        09:00 July 1, 2007

Reason:    BCNET is improving the core network resiliency
           in the Vancouver Transit Exchange, VANTX, by
           architecting the network such that the failure of
           one switch will not disrupt service for all
           connected services.  This maintenance period is
           to complete a core switch hardware upgrade.  A
           second service outage will be planned and notices
           sent for late July to complete the hardware changes.
          
Effects:   BCNET connectivity for the following sites in Vancouver
           will be interrupted for about one hour during this
           maintenance window.

               BCIT – Downtown Campus
               CBC
               Chancery
               Cipherkey
               Environment Canada – Vancouver
               NRC – Vancouver
               Payment Processing
               Prolan Networks
               SFU
               Vancouver Foundation
               WestGrid

           problems are experienced outside of a maintenance
           window.
