Re: fiber cut 19 May/PM -> 20 May/AM in Ashburn, VA (lawnmower?!)

configuration known as "collapsed backbone". in this instance, both
pairs of fiber ride in the same conduit for some portion of the
... or even as two wavelengths on the same pair of fibre.
It's a sick, sick, twisted world.
Come on, that is what we call lambda-diversity. In case your fiber fails
to carry, say 1550nm in the middle of the night, you are protected with
your 1590nm lambda.
I don't believe how many people engineer for physical diversity and not
lambda diversity -- and then its too late.
