Alert Message: 

Facilities informed us that there will be an emergency electrical
shutdown for the entire Nevis Laboratories this Sunday 10/12/2008 at
8am. Power will be restored by 4pm.

This will impact CUIT-provided network connectivity at Nevis and Lamont as follows:

NEVIS:

Nevis will lose all CUIT-provided network connectivity during the power outage.

LAMONT:

When the shutdown occurs at 8am, the traffic between Lamont and the
Commodity Internet will re-route from the Qwest connection at Nevis to
the Level 3 connection at Morningside. Lamont will see a disruption of
that traffic for up to 5 minutes.

When power is restored, the traffic between Lamont and the Commodity
Internet will re-route back to the Qwest connection at Nevis. Lamont
will again see a disruption of that traffic for up to 5 minutes.

Traffic between Lamont and Morningside/Internet2 should not be affected.

Thanks,
