We are fairly confident that a fibre cut on
the ORION (http://www.orano.on.ca/) network
around 1:45pm caused UW's partial external
network outage.

ORION has a redundant network and is investigating
why a fibre cut caused a service interruption.  UW continued to receive BGP route advertisements
from ORION during the incident, and as such continued to forward traffic on the ORION network.

We still have ORION disconnected, and traffic
on our other connections (primarily HOT and Allstream) is now maxing out the 1gbps links:


so some service slow down may be detected.
