Time for another quick Wednesday roundup of news from around the competitive telecom and internet infrastructure space:
Alteva picked up a Unified Communications as a Service contract with Mellon Certified Restoration. Mellon cleans up and restores properties damaged by disasters such as fire, water, smoke, wind, etc. They'll be using the cloud-based UCaaS to revamp their communications capabilities across their multiple locations.
Integra added another regional multi-location enterprise to its customer rolls. Salt Lake City's Associated Food Stores will be using their MPLS, VPN, and SIP solutions to hook up their facilities to a unified network spanning some 45 retail stores across the region. This is just the sort of customer Integra has been shifting towards over the past several years.
In the financial vertical, Telx picked up another exchange platform as a customer. Javelin OTC Derivatives has established a presence at their CHI1 facility at 350 East Cermak in Chicago. The derivatives platform needed low latency connectivity between its SEF engine and the Central Counterparty Clearing nodes in the city.
And way down in the deep south, the regional network operator Telepak further allied its bandwidth solutions with its 'sister' company C-Spire Wireless. They'll be selling bandwidth under the C-Spire Fiber brand name, exploring the benefits of pairing wireless with wireline. We don't hear much from Telepak, so here's a snapshot of their network map to the left.
