86 connections (up from 70 at the last NANOG)

New Colocation Facility at 8100 Boone (under construction) -- There will be
a Gigaswitch there that will be connected to the others.
71 connections -- 440 Mbps -- Dual OC3c with a third coming. Each one can

- Port Congestion -- Some providers can fill up their 100Mbs connection.
- Interconnect Capacity
- Head-of-Line Blocking -- When sending to a provider that is full, the

- Limiting the size of the shared FDDI (probably something like 4 per
- Full-duplex FDDI support (OC-3c connectivity will probably be needed
which currently requires a special quote)
