November 20th, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

It’s time for a quick tour of the network news from around the world today:

GTT’s network is taking over where Inteliquent’s took off, picking up IP and Ethernet connectivity in hard to reach places. Today they added Telekom Serbia to their list of partners. Telekom Serbia will be using their IP transit services to deliver European connectivity to its customers.

Level 3 has finished off part of its Colombian expansion. Their new data center in Bogota is now complete, bringing 1,700 square meters online to support regional demand. It will house a node of their DEC cloud services platform among other things.

Huawei picked up a four year managed services contract in the Middle East. STC Saudi Arabia has picked the Chinese vendor to help operate and maintain their wireless and wired networks. With the NSA spying scandal overshadowing the fears of Chinese espionage, Huawei’s star has been rising once again around the world.

And ADVA Optical Network’s equipment has won a Berlin deployment. With the help of Axians, SysEleven is using the gear to expand the network hooking up its data centers around the metro area. It’s a key piece of their effort to build nextgen infrastructure for the German capital.
