Today's roundup offers quick-takes on news already this week from Overture, inetwork, Colt, and CDGI.
Overture picked up a key international contract up in the North Atlantic. Mila ehf, the Icelandic incumbent, is deploying Overture's 10GigE and 1GigE mobile backhaul gear in response to the familiar driver of rapidly rising mobile data consumption. Carrier Ethernet technologies are now rapidly taking over backhaul network as the need for scalable nextgen infrastructure is undeniable.
Wholesale VoIP services firm inetwork continued to gain traction with another interesting contract. ZVRS has selected the Bandwidth division's voice origination/termination and IP-based E911 solutions for integration into the Z videophone and Z softphone applications. Earlier this month inetwork picked up a next generation E911 deal with the state of Alabama.
Colt Group (LON:COLT, news) says that it has appointed industry veteran Victor Smith as product director for its data center services segment. Colt's overall business seems poised to return to growth after churning off voice revenues for a few years, but they've been putting a lot of effort into their modular data center business. The additional management depth suggests they are now ready to expand their efforts further, so we'll surely be hearing more in the second half from this segment.
And out in Illinois, Cyber Development Group International (CDGI) says it has launched its third Enterprise Cloud Center on its Mt. Prospect campus. The new facility will house an NEC America disaster recovery and regional parts/service depot, and will have SSAE16 SOC1 and SOC2 as well as PCI level 2 certifications in place. CDGI designs and builds turnkey data center platforms for enterprise customers.
