MFS mentioned to me earlier that they were going to be making a decision
as to when they would be doing work following an assessment of todays
stability. (Tonight vs. Saturday)

They also mentioned that the problems we were seeing with Mae-East
bouncing was a result of problems with integration of Giga 6.

I was just told now by their customer service center that tonight at 4AM
Central they will be reinstalling trunk cards between Giga 4 and 6 which
were disabled last night, and as a result, we may bounce one more time. 

Right now I'm concerned about the packet loss between sides at Mae-West
(which varies during the day between 5 and 15 %).
