    This link has been stable, so we are closing the incident until replacement optics arrive.

    We are waiting on replacement parts to arrive in the next ~2 weeks to swap back to our previously-allocated DWDM channel. For now, we will monitor the performance of this link as it currently stands.

    Optics at the other end of the link have now been swapped to match transmission channel.
