Abstract

On Saturday morning, March 4, 1972, at 0800 EST the BBN IMP (#5) will go off the air to allow for a move of the equipment to a new location in BBN's facilities. The NCC telephone and operators will be available as usual during this period. We hope to have the IMP back on the Network by early Saturday afternoon; the choice of Saturday morning was made intentionally so that if by some stroke of fate all our wideband lines stay down longer than anticipated, the impact on others in the network will be minimized. We anticipate that all other sites will operate normally through this period.

BBN IMP (#5) AND NCC SCHEDULE MARCH 4, 1971

On Saturday morning, March 4, 1972, at 0800 EST the BBN IMP (#5)

will go off the air to allow for a move of the equipment to a

new location in BBN's facilities. The NCC telephone and operators

will be available as usual during this period. We hope to have

the IMP back on the Network by early Saturday afternoon; the

choice of Saturday morning was made intentionally so that if by

some stroke of fate all our wideband lines stay down longer than

anticipated, the impact on others in the network will be minimized.

We anticipate that all other sites will operate normally through

this period.

Shortly subsequent to this move, a new Host will be connected to

the net. This is a PDP-1D at BBN which will be used for certain

additional NCC functions. It will not be a Server site. We

prefer the Host name "BBN-1D"; its network address will be 197.
