Subject:  MAE WEST outage notification
There will be a short outage at MAE WEST Saturday morning,
approximately between 12:00am and 12:15am.  The outage should last no
longer than five minutes.
During this time, we will be splitting the shared FDDI ring at MFS into
two segments, each on a separate Gigaswitch port.  This should alleviate
congestion on the shared FDDI which has been causing packet loss recently.
Peering to and from some of the stations on the shared FDDI and switched
Ethernet ports will be affected while the cables are being moved.
