FS#832 - [Scaleway] PAR1 - Core routers upgrade

New core routers will be added in PAR1 in march to sustain our traffic growth and to allow more server capacity to be deployed.

No major traffic disruption is planned as traffic will be rerouted through redundant path.
This may cause minor packet loss.

This is a major upgrade and we will double the network capacity once again.
This is currently planned for late March.

This task does not depend on any other tasks.
