Lots of network news this Monday morning, here's a quick survey of some interesting items:
PEG Bandwidth has expanded its product set to include wavelengths. They're offering 2.5G, 10G, and 100G not just in the main cities, but in the rural areas that the company specializes in backhauling traffic from. PEG has been aggressively building out its network over the past few years, and this seems like a logical addition.
Tower Cloud has also added a new product to their bandwidth portfolio. The southeastern tower backhaul specialist has launched Ethernet Private Line services aimed at a new type of customer. The new service offers 50Mbps-100Gbps of capacity to enterprises and governmental organizations looking for a new connectivity alternative.
The Great Plains will soon have some more intercity fiber available. Neutral Path Communications is finishing up a new segment of its network between Omaha, Nebraska and Windowm, Minnesota. The 240 route mile buildout will be done by the end of the year, and another 39 metro route miles of dark fiber in Omaha are also in process. Neutral Path is building southward toward Dallas.
Wilcon picked up a custom managed private network deal down in southern California. They have deployed a private 10G network for Point.360, an audio-visual asset management company. The network hooks up 3 locations in Burbank, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles via a hub at Wilcon's facility at One Wilshire. The entertainment vertical is one of LA's specialties of course.
And Global Capacity has added another partner with unique network reach to its ecosystem. INDATEL has hooked up to their One Marketplace service in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Dallas. INDATEL is the organization representing the combined aspirations of a group of regional wholesale network operators and RLECs covering 80,000 largely rural route miles of fiber.
