During the next few weeks we will be migrating our core network onto new, faster Juniper router and switches. The new routers and switches are already in place in our data centres and configured. The current work involves moving links in a controlled manner between the old and new network . The majority of this i moving peering and transit connections one by one. This will not cause any outages – just subtle routing changes as the traffic moves away from a transit – the link is moved and the transit (or peering re-appears via the new network.
Once this is completed there will be some brief blips on leased lines and broadband connections as they are moved to the new network – these will be communicated as these are planed – most outages will be less than a couple of minutes in these cases as the cables are moved.
The end result will be a more modern network with far greater capacity for growth
We will update this site as the plans progress
