We’ve already replaced similar line cards in the EECS border and Cory Hall routers without incident. The Soda router reconfiguration is slightly more complex, but due to redundant connections and routing, no discernible connectivity disruption is expected.
The vendor confirmed that the current line cards contain faulty hardware and provided replacements. The IRIS network suffered several outages due to this bug, which typically only appears after 6-9 months of operation.
