I am pleased to announce that this morning, we successfully completed
the Phase 5 ANSNet deployment. The major changes accomplished in this
o Upgrade of all DS3/HSSI router serial interface adapters (T3
CNSS and ENSS) to support full DS3 bandwidth. The router
adapter bus interface cards were also upgraded to double the
packet switching rates per interface.
o The T3 DSUs on each DS3 interface were replaced with T3Plus
BMX45 bandwidth managers on T3 CNSS-CNSS circuits and Larscom
Access-T45 DSUs on a T3 ENSS-CNSS circuit.
o The architecture for interconnection among CNSS routers at
each MCI POP location was upgraded to a common FDDI ring from
the original point-to-point links architecture.
As a result of this upgrade, we have 17 backbone links and 21 customer
attachments running at full T3:
Seattle - Denver Backbone Link
Seattle - San Francisco Backbone Link
San Francisco - Chicago Backbone Link
San Francisco - Los Angeles Backbone Link
Los-Angeles - Albuquerque Backbone Link
