Here's a set of quick-takes on some customer wins announced this week:
GTT took aim at the Middle East this week with a big IP transit deal. They announced the sale of a 100Gbps connection to Saudi Telecom Company, picking up where Inteliquent left off when it comes to global reach. GTT seems likely to make further M&A moves at some point this year in the managed networking space.
TelePacific offered up an update on its ongoing invasion of Texas. They've been taking aim at South Texas, bringing in Doug Greenberg as general manager for the region. TelePacific entered Texas via the purchase of Tel West four years ago, but since then has been moving ahead organically. I keep waiting for the next shoe to drop though.
North of New York City, vXchnge picked up another cloud customer. Virtual Density has deployed in its Westchester data center as it scales its infrastructure in response to demand. vXchnge most recently acquired 8 new data centers from Sungard, putting them in 15 markets.
Netrality also added another customer this week. The fixed wireless provider Rainbow Broadband has established a point of presence at 325 Hudson. Rainbow has more than 300 on-net buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island City, with some high profile names on its customer list. Netrality's meet-me room has been having a big year.
And Faction says its cloud has been busy helping sell tickets for Gargh Brooks. Their channel partner ePlexity has leveraged Faction's infrastructure to help Altitude Tickets move to the cloud, helping to boost revenue growth and reduce costs. Altitude's parent, Kronenke Sports & Entertainment expects to expand the cloud usage to the rest of the company as well.
