2017-03-30: IAD2 – Reston BGP Maintenance April 1 and 2

Posted on

Upstream provider Cogent will be performing maintenance.  Due to the nature of the maintenance, we will be diverting BGP traffic away from Cogent in the IAD2 POP.

Anycast customers configured for an anycast group including Cogent will see traffic diverted and automatically re-route to other POPs.

Start:  Saturday April 1 2017, 11:30pm EDT (local time in Reston VA)
End:  Sunday April 2 2017, 6:30am EDT (local time in Reston VA)

Minimal impact is expected, as BGP will automatically re-route traffic.  For any questions, please open a support ticket.
