Enclosed are several messages concerning the retirement
of the NSFNET Backbone Service.  Serveral nodes have
been retired and the entire service will cease on 
April 30, 1995.

I thought these changes might be of interest to the
RIPE community, but I was not sure what was the correct
list to recieve these.

Subject: First ENSS retired
Status: RO

The first router of the NSFNET backbone service has
been retired.  ENSS 138 (in Atlanta, Georgia) was 
retired on March 11, 1995.

It was a pleasure working with Georgia Tech and SURAnet to
provide connectivity to the NSFNET Backbone for that part
of the US.  

One down.

Subject: ENSS 136 retired
Status: RO

As of March 22, 1995, the NSFNET Backbone Service to SURAnet
at College Park, Maryland (ENSS 136) was retired. This node
was also the interconnection point with MAE-East.  All NSFNET
service directly to the SURAnet regional was eliminated with
the retirement of ENSS 136.  SURAnet is the first regional to
be totally dependent upon its new service provider.

The NSFNET Backbone service will continue to have connectivity
to MAE-East+ until April 30, 1995.

Subject: ENSS 133 retired
Status: RO

As of March 31, 1995, the NSFNET Backbone Service to
NYSERnet, Cornell Theory Center, and PSI at Ithaca, NY
(ENSS 133) will be retired.  

This termination of service means that there are two regional
networks, SURAnet and NYSERnet, which are totally dependent
on their new service providers, internetMCI and Sprintlink.
In addition, the Cornell Theory Center is the first super-
computer center to terminate its dependence on the NSFNET
Backbone Service.

Merit thanks NYSERnet, Cornell Theory Center, and PSI for
their cooperation since 1988 and during the transition.
