On Wednesday, March 20th, Packet will perform network upgrades and datacenter cabling work in our Dallas, TX area facilities (DFW1 & DFW2). This work will continue throughout the day, from 16:00-01:00 UTC. During this window, we will be installing new metro optical equipment, in support of current and anticipated network traffic in the region. Datacenter and network POPs will be connected via multiple 100G ethernet links, routed over diverse dark fiber paths and equipment.
We do not foresee any service level impact, given the redundant backbone and provider connectivity deployed in these sites, however, we are issuing this notice out of an abundance of caution. Customers may see Internet and inter-datacenter traffic routed over different paths during this work. This work will be fully scripted and monitored at every stage by both our Datacenter and Network teams.
Please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions.
