Internet2 Washington DC node in service

The old Indianapolis T640 has officially been redeployed as the Washington DC Internet2 node at Level3. To facilitate the change, the Internet2 Chicago to New York OC-192 circuit was split in Washington DC and the new router was inserted in the middle. The physical change on the transport equipment took about 30 seconds. The router config took about 30-45 minutes, depending on the service.
