IAA Engineers will be upgrading firmware of the hardware located at Qv1(pe3.per1), NextDC P1(pe2.per5), Equinix PE2(pe1.per4) and Pier DC(pe1.per6) to resolve a port partitioning limitation.

Members with service ports within Qv1(pe3.per1), NextDC P1(pe2.per5), Equinix PE2(pe1.per4) and Pier DC(pe1.per6) should expect their port to go offline during this outage.

Member with service ports within Qv1(pe1.per1, pe2.per1) and NextDC P1(pe1.per5) should expect impact to their services - Peering, VLL Extended Reach and any bilateral you may have to another peer.

Members with VLL to AWS should expect impact to their services.

ALL Members connected to WA-IX should also expect rs1.wa.ix.asn.au to go offline during the first half of the outage and rs2.wa.ix.asn.au during the second half of the outage.

Engineers will make sure one of the route servers is always online during the outage, to maintain the redundancy.

Content served via AS10084 is also impacted.

Inter-capital link between PERADL is on hazard status, no outage is expected as traffic will shift via the longer path causing an increase in latency.

The work is expected to take about 1 hour. However, 4 hours has been booked in the unlikely event of an emergency.

Engineers will drain peering sessions for ports roughly 10 minutes before the planned event using BCP214 compliant filters to ensure traffic is not suddenly dropped. Filters will be removed once the devices are back online and stable.
