I've not seen any mention of this here, so it might be off-topic, if so,
sorry in advance. If you use GPS for time synchronization, this might be
important.The Juniper ACX500 series and the Cisco 819 both have an
embedded GPS receivers, for example.
At 23:59:42 UTC on 4/6/2019 (Midnight GPS time, which differs by 18
leap-seconds <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_second>Â from UTC) , the
10-bit GPS Week Number broadcast by the constellation will reset to zero
for the second time since the beginning of GPS on 1/6/1980.
