Network wide - Emergency edge network maintenance, scheduled 6 months ago

Description of maintenance

As of recent we have run into some software bugs on our network edge, we have been working close with the vendor of the hardware in order to diagnose and patch these. In order to install the new software we are scheduling maintenance.

During the maintenance configuration will be updated in order to increase network performance, resolve the current issues and add new features. The new features which will be rolled out after the update has been installed include but are not limited to:

  • New mechanisms to decrease the impact should a network backbone link go down;
  • DDoS filtering instead of null-routing;
  • More advanced route filtering in order to minimize impact during major route leaks etc.;


As the maintenance is on the network edge, there might be impact for customers. Network performance will be degraded during the maintenance. Redundancy measures will be leveraged in order to keep the impact at a bare minimum.

  • Regular updates will posted on here should the maintenance not go according to plan.

Date and Time

The Maintenance will start on 23/11/2019 on 00:00 (CET) and will end 23/11/2019 05:30 (CET).
