Here's a few items from network operators from this week:
FiberLight has announced plans to light up some longhaul connectivity this fall. On November 15, they will turn up 100G connectivity between the company's islands of metro and regional fiber connectivity. FiberLight operates dense infrastructure around the DC and northern Virginia region, in Atlanta, on both coasts of Florida, and across much of Texas. FiberLight's Texas project was its biggest yet, and I'm wondering what the next one will be.
Hurricane Electric's ongoing network expansion made its way into the state of Wyoming this week. With the help of Nebraska's Great Plains Communications and Wyoming's Advanced Communications Technology, they have built out a new point of presence there. Great Plains Communications is supplying the connectivity from Nebraska into ACT's data center in the city of Cheyenne.
And back in the New York/New Jersey area, Cleareon has formally announced the acquisition of Pangaea Networks. Readers of Telecom Ramblings already knew this one of course, since we broke the news two weeks ago when Cleareon rolled out Pangaea's flagship Ethernet product. Cleareon's inorganic move accelerates its regional expansion plans significantly, although the company still must prove it can do more with the assets than Pangaea managed to do.Fiber Networks · Mergers and Acquisitions · Metro fiber
