Time for a quick roundup of regional and metro infrastructure news: a network upgrade for NoaNet, a product rollout by Lumos, and a birthday for Logix.
The Pacific Northwest got an injection of some regional 100G this morning, as ADVA announced a deployment of its gear at Northwest Open Access Network. Stimulus funding supported the upgrade, which will bring big bandwidth to rural communities across the state of Washington.
Back in the Midatlantic, Lumos Networks has rolled out a new Metro Ethernet service aimed at both enterprises and wireless backhaul across its footprint. Their Ethernet Commercial Reserve E-Line service combines guaranteed bandwidth reservation, diverse transport paths, and exclusive forwarding priority, and follows up on their MEF CE2.0 certification a few months ago.
The data center operator CyrusOne added Houston-based Gimmal to its customer rolls. Gimmal provides Microsoft SharePoint-powered document management solutions, and is leveraging CyrusOne's Texas data center footprint and ecosystem.
Meanwhile, also down in Texas we have a corporate birthday. Logix Communications says it turned 30 years old today, dating from when founder and still Chairman of the board Ron Henriksen launched a long distance alternative out of a two bedroom apartment called American Telco. Three decades is forever in telecom if you weren't once part of Ma Bell.
