What's defined as a hot-cut?
-Using existing rack/cables?
-Do outages go hand in hand with hot-cuts? Or are outages/blackouts defined as operations 'ignoring' the flags that occurring, or is it an actual 'outage'.
What is swinging? (L3 swing, swing over L3, etc.)
-Is this 'swinging' IP schemas? Original is 10.0.1.0/24, new devices will be 10.0.2.0/24. Maybe the schema is the same? It could mean a lot of things as well, but elaborate!
If ISP is on the call with us, what are some validation commands I should ask for (QoS, MPLS, basic connectivity)? Please list!
show ip interface brief....etc.
