Wednesday Bytes: HFN, Cologix, Akamai, Intelisys

October 30th, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

Here’s a quick roundup of all things data from the first half of the week that is worth a quick look:

Hudson Fiber Network has completed a major upgrade to its fiber network in the NY/NJ metro area. For HFN a major upgrade means another notch lower in latency on key routes. In this case they’ve cut off another 0.8km south of Mahwah, shortening all paths to that key destination in the financial vertical. They’re providing the upgrade at no additional expense, which tells you just how competitive things are in the financial vertical in the NY metro area these days.

Cologix has another network on its interconnection rolls up in Minneapolis. Mammoth Networks has hooked up with them via a PoP in their MIN2 facility at 511 11th Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. Mammoth has been expanding its footprint lately, with an expansion earlier this month out in the Pacific Northwest. Cologix’s Minneapolis presence came via an acquisition last year, which they have been investing in since.

GPShopper has turned to Akamai to speed things up. The mobile content provicer is using Akamai’s Aqua solutions to accelerate and optimize the apps and websites it handles for its national retail and international brand customers. Just in time for the holidays of course, I’ll bet there’s been a lot of that going on lately.

And Intelisys has new options at its disposal out in the Far East for its agents. Pacnet has signed on as a supplier, bringing its data center and network services across APAC to the table. Pacnet has been busy this year retooling its portfolio, and now it is looking to expand its opportunities via the channel.
