Xmas Data Bytes: Global Capacity, HE, Telx, Zayo

December 20th, 2013 by · 8 Comments

Before everyone disappears for the holidays (except me), here's a few expansions and infrastructure contracts from this week to look at:

Global Capacity has built out a new hub for its One Marketplace offering. They've expanded into Seattle with a PoP at Equinix's SE2 data center at 2020 5th Ave. That gives them access to the Pacific Northwest and a gateway to endpoints in Asia via the submarine cables landing nearby.

Hurricane Electric continued to add global breadth to its international backbone this week with a new connection up north. They've connected to the Winnipeg Internet Exchange for both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic, reaching into central Canada -- a bandwidth destination that few US network operators have on their radar.

Telx added an Ethernet service provider to its ecosystem down in Atlanta. Seattle-based Wolfe is putting in a PoP within its data center at 56 Marietta, expanding its reach in the southeastern part of the country. Wolfe has been boosting its national presence this year, adding nodes in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco in the last two quarters.

Zayo picked up another infrastructure deal in the UK this week. The cloud/connectivity provider C4L has tapped them for fiber connectivity to power its coreTX network. Zayo's fiber will be helping to hook up 27 additional data centers, adding to the 15 already on-net from an earlier deployment.
