IP address aliasing and/or change on a MLX8

[ Edited ]

We have a MLX8e router that is in use in our CO. We have a new range of public IPs that is assigned to us, as well as a range that were are trying to move away from. We have 2 different upstream providers, and we do utilize BGP on the router. We are wanting to migrate the router IP off of the old IP address and onto a new IP address. Is there any way we can alias onto a new IP and start using it until the upstream providers make their changes? Is there any easy way to do this? Has this been done before? What other unforseen issues might we have when making this change.
