Chicago Metro DWDM up

Jay and I finished the Chicago metro DWDM install around 5PM on Friday. Right now we're transporting the following connections between 710 North Lakeshore Drive and 600 W. Chicago
  • T640 to Legacy Abilene Chicago router at Qwest
  • MREN 10GigE
  • Starlight 10GigE
  • WISCnet/Merit Transitional 10GigE
Jake Sallee was a big help in getting all the fibers moved over at 710 North Lakeshore Drive.

We had planned to migrate all the Starlight and MREN VLANs over to the new network, but the MREN interconnect was taking a few errors on Thursday night. That, combined with the Indianapolis T640 router swap-out convinced me to postpone it. We're scheduled to make that move on Monday night.
