Internet switch replacement status
Published: 9-20-2012 1:35 pm
After conferring with the carrier, their preference would be to wait for
switch replacement until midnight tonight. We haven't seen a return of the DDoS
traffic and if we do the volume should be significantly reduced. The carrier
will have the switch onsite and ready to install at 2:30PM and if we do have
another incident they will proceed immediately with replacement. If we
don't experience any traffic issues, they will replace the switch at midnight to
minimize unnecessary inconvenience.
We're hoping that this approach will result in the least level of
inconvenience for campus users.
