KINBER is announcing a major maintenance window to facilitate our Point of Presence (POP) move at 401 North Broad Street (NBRD) from our current space in Suite 250 to the Netrality Suite in the Research and Education cage that KINBER has built. As part of this migration, there will be several steps that will impact the KINBER community:

On Wednesday, November 15th, 2017, at 9am EDT, KINBER will implement a change freeze on the network through Ticket #8860 that will be in effect until the actual maintenance begins. During this time, only changes approved by the Director of Operations will be allowed on the network.

Beginning on Sunday November 19th, 2017 at 6pm EDT, KINBER and Ledcor engineering will be on-site at 401 North Broad. At 7pm EDT, KINBER will issue commands to drain the caches that are on-net in Philadelphia. What this means is the caches will no longer accept new connections to serve content, but will continue serving content that has already established connectivity. All Content served from the caches will be completed by the time the actual maintenance starts at 10pm EDT.
