NY1 emergency network maintenance

An issue has been identified with one of our Zayo point to point circuits which has the potential to impact availability and latency to some locations.  Addressing the issue will require an emergency maintenance window, beginning at 3:30AM EST. During this maintenance window, some brief increases in latency and minimal packet loss may be observed.

Thank you for your patience as we make these necessary repairs in order to maintain the speed and reliability of the NYI network.
