Here's a quick look at some news from the metro and regional fiber front:
Sunesys said yesterday that it has finished up a network project for the pharmaceutical services provider Almac Group. The hybrid dark fiber and 1Gbps Ethernet private line solution hooks up four locations across southeastern Pennsylvania and a colo facility in Philadelphia. That particular geography is Sunesys's deepest fiber stronghold of course.
Down in Texas, Alpheus Communications has introduced 100Gb Ethernet services in the Texas Triangle cities of Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. They've deployed the necessary technology the metro and the regional longhaul, targeting both carriers and data intensive enterprise customers.
And Unite Private Networks has a new headquarters to call home. They are cutting the ribbon on the new location in Liberty, Missouri, and moving over from Kearney, all within the Kansas City metro area. The Liberty School District and the local governments have been longtime customers of UPN of course.
