IAA Engineers will be upgrading firmware of the hardware located at Equinix ME1(pe2.mel4) to resolve a port partitioning limitation.
Members with service ports within Equinix ME1 (pe2.mel4) should expect their port to go offline during this outage.
Inter-capital link between MELSYD 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 15-30 minutes. 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.
