MFS Outage 6:30PM PDT 4/18/97

FYI: (7:30PM PDT)

Starting at approximately 6:30PM PDT, MFS's power
unit on their fiber mux located at the Digital Internet
Exchange is resetting every 30 seconds to 1 minute.

All MFS fiber facilities are down during the power
reset. This includes all MFS/Worldcom DS3 and T1
circuits entering the PAIX collocate facility.

The IX Operations staff (Digital Internet Exchange
Operations) believes that the problem is due to a
bad rectifier on the fiber mux's power rack.

We are currently waiting for MFS to provide a dispatch
to fix this problem.
