Original Alert

We received notice from our I2 ISP:

"Because of a suspected fiber cut in McLean, Virginia, services that use Internet2 are currently down. These include the Internet2 IP network, TR-CPS and Google peering. R&E traffic will failover to NLR if possible. Google and TR-CPS traffic will take the commodity Internet.

There is as yet no time estimate from Internet2 for restoration of services."

Due to this outage some site connectivity may be degraded or unavailable.

We will update as more information becomes available.

For more information, please contact Network Operations Center (814-865-4662).
