Reason: Scheduled maintenance to upgrade the OS of all routers
in the Transit Exchanges as part of continual life cycle
maintenance and to resolve outstanding OS issues.

Effects: Even though this is an in service upgrade, sites may experience
brief interruptions to network connectivity as changeovers are
done.
Impacts could be up to two service interruptions of up to five
minutes each during the maintenance window.

All connections in Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, and Victoria
will be upgraded.
All connections to the VANTX2 router in Vancouver will be upgraded.

Vancouver sites with primary and secondary connections into
VANTX may be impacted on only one of the connections.
