Network Bytes: Fibertech, UPN, Level 3, Seaborn

March 12th, 2015 by · Leave a Comment

Two metro fiber contracts, some subsea backhaul, and a contract over in Iraq for this Thursday morning:

EdgeConneX has another metro fiber ally to go with its latest edge data center. Fibertech has built out to their soon-to-be-launched facility in Southfield MI, just outside of Detroit. The Detroit metro area has been one of Fibertech's biggest new fiber buildout projects in recent years, with almost 800 route miles nearing completion.

Unite Private Networks has won another slice of Nebraska's bandwidth market. Hexagon Lincoln has partnered with them for Ethernet private line, colo, and high speed internet. That will hook up several locations in Lincoln as well as some colo space in UPN's facility over in Pueblo, Colorado.

Earthlink Telecommunications has signed up with Level 3 Communications this week. They've tapped Level 3 for connectivity for enterprise customers over in the Middle East, with one new oil and gas contract signed already. And stop scratching your head, it's not the same EarthLink, this one provides connectivity over in Iraq.

Seaborn Networks has secured some dark fiber backhaul capabilities on the Brazilian end of the submarine cable they are building. They are partnering with Netell Telecom and Citatel, acquiring metro fiber and Sao Paolo from the former and fiber paths between Sao Paolo and Santos from the latter. Seaborn's Seabras-1 is suppsed to be ready for service at the end of 2016, with Alcatel-Lucent handling the construction itself.
