Did you miss it? Salt Lake City installed last week

Apparently our network elves have been hard at work in the wee hours of the morning cobbling shoes and installing router nodes. Unbeknownst to many, the Internet2 network peeked its head into the Beehive State and decided to set up shop. It's safely tethered to the Kansas City router now, but we're aiming to change that in the next week with a second lifeline to Seattle. That will make it a full-fledged grown-up router, able to route with the best of them.

Steve Corbato dropped by on Friday just to make sure our boys hadn't electrocuted themselves and posted some photos of the visit. I know what you're going to ask, and the answer is: "No, the POP doesn't have a brew-pub in one of the suites."

For some reason the router still thinks its in Atlanta. :-) I''ll be configuring it tomorrow so it can play in all the reindeer games with the rest of the big boys.

We have two teams heading out West and South to install Denver and Baton Rouge Ciena nodes. We wish them well.
