Per AT&T:
AT&T will be upgrading the distribution Router that aggregates your VPLS network on March 8th. This upgraded is expected to take no more than four hours. The Router has two routing engines. When we upgrade the first one there will be a momentary hit (milliseconds) while traffic gets routed
through to the second routing engine. The same outage will occur later when the second routing engine gets upgraded. During this time the following locations will be segregated from the rest of your network.
