Level 3 will Upgrade BB2 ALU 7950 routers to code level SROS-14.0.R5-1 This will fix 100gb/10gb uplink error and a p-chip false alarm error. This will also bring us up to date with Vendor code level recommendation.
During this window we expect to loose our Level3 peering as it requires a reload of the affected router. Traffic will automatically re-route across other paths on our network.
