NETWORK OUTAGE: Internet2 Connectivity 3/10/14

DAY: Monday
DATE & TIME: March 10, 2014 from 08:00 a.m. - 05:00 p.m.


One of our Internet Service Providers (ISPs) must perform maintenance that will impact the university’s connection to Internet2.


Services that will be DIRECTLY impacted and made unavailable by this maintenance are:

  • Direct peering to Southern Crossroads (SoX), ESnet and Drexel.

To avoid significant impact, services will be rerouted to failover, redundant ISPs. Significant rerouted traffic times will occur at the beginning and end of the maintenance period (i.e., around 8 am and around 5 pm).  Services most likely to be affected during these times are:

  • Connection to Qatar campus resources
  • Internet2 Research and Engineering network
  • TransitRail-Commercial Peering Service
  • Internet2 direct peering services such as Google
  • Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE)
