The network connectivity for the new 7x upgrade was completed to the primary sites was completed and passed testing earlier this month. An upgrade cutover date has been set for Tuesday December 9th. A detailed schedule for the cut over will be provided by December 5th. Access to the system will remain available during the cutover with the exception of console connectivity.
The transition of the Hard Road site will take place starting December 3rd when that site will be taken off line to allow for fiber upgrades and the addition of the new hardware. The installation of the Hilliard Darby site is still pending final design and construction by our partners at Verizon.
