Metro Bytes: NexxCom, Colo ATL, HE, RingCentral, Lightpath

December 16th, 2014 by · Leave a Comment

Here's a quick survey of recent regional customer wins and expansions that are worth a quick look:

NexxCom Wireless has a new, key friend in New York City. They've formed a strategic partnership with Sabey Data Centers. Sabey operates Intergate.Manhattan, the 550-foot-tall data center at 375 Pearl. That height will be used to provide NexxComm's fixed wireless services to customers around the region, with low latency pipes up to 5Gbps. That could complement the various fiber options available to both enterprises and carriers in very interesting ways.

In Atlanta, Colo Atl has picked up a customer win for SNAP, its Southeast Network Access point. Regional neighbor Sago Networks, which operates data centers in both Atlanta and Tampa, has hooked into the exchange. Sago has metro dark fiber in Atlanta, with which it is hooking into Colo Atl's data center and meet me room at 55 Marietta from its facility in Norcross, GA.

Hurricane Electric has added a couple of new PoPs out in the Midwest. They've moved into two Digital Realty locations in St. Louis: 210 North Tucker Boulevard and 900 Walnut Street. HE has been adding PoPs in both the USA and Europe at a steady pace for some time now, giving their global IPv4 and IPv6 network greater and greater reach.

On the west coast, RingCentral has sold some VoIP to the auto vertical. Pacific BMW has picked the company's cloud voice services to replace an 'antiquated on-premises PBX system', one which went down three times a year taking a day or so to wait for a technician to come and fix it. Yep, those car salesman will now be able to use their smartphones even more.

And back on the east coast, Lightpath has brought in some new talent. David Kniffin as SVP and Chie Administration Officer, is moving over from Lightpath's parent company Cablevision where he was SVP of Financial Planning. Lightpath has been relatively quiet about it, but they've now got 7,000 on-net buildings across the New York City metro area.
