Abstract

No formal abstract, but this extended abstract summarizes our ability, as a third party, to measure outages in edge networks at the time of Hurricane Sandy. This analysis showed U.S. networks had double the outage rate (from 0.2% to 0.4%) on 2012-10-30, the day after Sandy landfall, and recovered after four days.
