Friday Roundup: NexGen, Internap, Cisco, T-Mobile

July 10th, 2015 by · Leave a Comment

This week has been a slow start to July news-wise for telecom and internet infrastructure, if you don’t count the security non-event hysteria the other day.  But nevertheless there is plenty going on, and here is another set of quick-takes on items worth a quick look:

Interxion has a new customer at its data center in the City of London. NexGen Networks has built out a new PoP there for its private Ethernet service. NexGen has been busy adding global reach lately, having built out to Hong Kong just last month and acquiring capacity on TEA between Frankfurt and Hong Kong before that.

Internap has upgraded its public cloud offerings once again. The company’s AgileCLOUD now supports OpenStack Glance and Heat, bringing image management as well as orchestration and auto-scaling to the table. Both are initially available out of Internap’s facilities in Secaucus and Dallas, with Amsterdam coming in the next three weeks.

Cisco has a new customer south of the border for its UCS product family. Grupo Industrial Saltillo has deployed the gear in its new data center. GIS is based in northern Mexico, specializing in autoparts manufacturing, housewares, and construction supplies.

And T-Mobile continued to roll, posting some 2.1M in customer additions in Q2.  John Legere, the former Global Crossing CEO who now leads T-Mobile, has been having the time of his life playing disruptor-in-chief for the US wireless sector even as DT keeps trying to find an exit from the USA.  It has been fascinating to watch the evolution, from the tightly scripted and choreographed captain of a GLBC network ship with leaks he seemed oblivious to even as he bailed furiously, to today’s outspoken, twitter-powered, long-wavy-haired thorn in the side of Sprint, Verizon and AT&T.
