Emergency Scheduled Maintenance on XMission's Border Router, scheduled 7 months ago
On Sunday, February 5th starting at 12:01 a.m., and completing by 6:00 a.m., XMission will be performing a firmware upgrade on one of our border routers, br2. This firmware upgrade is recommended by our router manufacturer to repair a memory leak vulnerability.
To ensure our customer's Internet service is minimally impacted, prior to the start of the maintenance we will gracefully move some of our transit connections from br2 to our other border router br1. UTOPIA customers might see higher latency during this time as we move customer traffic off the border router. Our Yellowstone Fiber customers might be unable to access the XMission customer control panel for 2-3 minutes, but otherwise will not be impacted by this maintenance.
