Their HUB is connected by one microwaved DS-3? This is not good. Granted,

This DS3 is one of 4 private interconnect BBN has to MCI. I don't think
there's anything wrong with it's current provisioning given that their other
backbone DS3 have diverse routing.. Please correct me if I've missed
something.

rk, or 2) Was not available ...

See my previous comments about rusty generators.

Telco wise, BBN does have a nice dirverse system. Their MCI T-3 is on
a microwave that goes to Palo Alto, where it drops off to MCI's bay area
fiber ring between San Jose to San Francisco.

Their HUB is connected by one microwaved DS-3? This is not good. Granted,
most DS-3 microwave radios have hot standby radios, muldems ect. on each
end but, they are always ripe for outage due to interference or path fade.
I can see the microwave as a segment of a SONET OC-3 link, only if the
other side is fiber.

Some of their backbone T-3's
come into a Pac Bell OC-48, which has an entirely seperate protection
path into Stanford itself (Stanford alltogether has two Pac Bell OC-48's,
with a third one planned!). Another fiber path belongs to MFS for more
dirversity. So on that level, they have their act together.

This is good.. How many of BBN's peer connection run over the SONET ring?

Your right. I interpreted an earlier message to read that the only connect
to MCI routers was via the MW.
