Work description:

DE-CIX will be performing a software-upgrade on edge01.fra2.

During this maintenance, all customers connected to this edge device are expected to experience a downtime of their service(s) for up to 120 minutes.
The software upgrade is necessary to enable new features.

Since the route-server rs1 is also connected to this edge, the sessions will be moved to a different route-server prior the upgrade task. Please make sure you have the sessions with the rs2 established :
rs2 : / 2001:7f8::1a27:5051:c19d

The maintenance timeline : 

00:00 - 03:00 CEST: Migration of the RS BGP sessions to a backup RS connected to a different edge
03:00 - 07:00 CEST: Software upgrade of our edge01.fra2

We'll disable our DE-CIX peering during the above mentioned timeframe to prevent any loss of traffic during the downtime of the DE-CIX port.
