60 Day Termination Notice (fwd)
From: Elise Gerich <epg () merit edu>
Date: Tue, 28 Feb 1995 12:59:18 -0500 (EST)

The following message has been sent to ANS to formally issue the 
60 day termination notice for the NSFNET Backbone Service.  Many
of you already depend on an alternate network for your primary
communication path, but this is the final step in officially
notifying ANS that the service will cease.

It has been wonderful working with you all over the course of the
NSFNET award, and we hope that we will continue our fine working 
relationship in the brave new world of post-NSFNET.

Dear Jordan,
It is with mixed feelings that Merit sends this notification
to ANS to terminate the NSFNET Backbone Service at the 
following locations:

ENSS 128      Palo Alto       April 30, 1995  midnight PST
ENSS 129      Champaign       April 30, 1995  midnight CST
ENSS 130      Argonne         April 30, 1995  midnight CST
ENSS 131      Ann Arbor       April 30, 1995  midnight EST
ENSS 132      Pittsburgh      April 30, 1995  midnight EST
ENSS 133      Ithaca          April 30, 1995  midnight EST
ENSS 134      Cambridge       April 30, 1995  midnight EST
ENSS 135      San Diego       April 30, 1995  midnight PST 
ENSS 136      College Park    April 30, 1995  midnight EST
ENSS 137      Princeton       April 30, 1995, midnight EST
ENSS 139      Houston         April 30, 1995, midnight CST
ENSS 140      Lincoln         April 30, 1995, midnight CST
ENSS 141      Boulder         April 30, 1995, midnight MST
ENSS 142      Salt Lake City  April 30, 1995, midnight MST
ENSS 143      Seattle         April 30, 1995, midnight PST
ENSS 144      Moffett Field   April 30, 1995, midnight PST
ENSS 145      College Park    April 30, 1995, midnight EST
ENSS 146      DC              April 30, 1995, midnight EST
ENSS 147      MFS             April 30, 1995, midnight EST

This notification also pertains to the cessation of NSFNET
Backbone Service at the Ameritech, MFS, PacBell, and
Sprint Network Access Points.  A termination notice was 
issued previously for ENSS 138 (Atlanta) so that node 
is not included in this termination notice.

It is sad to note that at midnight in each respective time
zone, the service that Merit, ANS, IBM, and MCI have 
collaborated to provide over the last seven years will
cease to exist.  It is also with pleasure that we
complete this grand experiment on such a successful
note. I think that this partnership has succeeded
beyond any of our dreams. It has been fun!
