Back in the saddle after spending most of the week on the road, and it's time to catch up on some metro news for Friday morning:
Alpheus has announced another metro expansion project in Texas, its fourth over the past year. They'll be adding metro fiber passing another 1,000 buildings, focusing on booming areas of Houston, Dallas, and the Telecom Corridor in Richardson. The expansion will bring Alpheus's potential metro reach to 48,000 businesses across the state.
RCN has a new high profile on-net building in New York City. They've built fiber into 589 5th Avenue, owned by Western Management and undergoing an upgrade to its internal infrastructure. RCN was able to offer both consumer triple play and business Ethernet to the mix of tenants in the building.
In the Midwest, Unite Private Networks continued its momentum in Nebraska with a healthcare-related win. Professional Research Consultants Inc. will be using UPN's Ethernet private lines and internet access to hook up its locations across the state. PRC offers market research to the healthcare vertical.
And finally, California-based TelePacific says it has earned Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certification from the MEF. Both the company's VPLS and EPL services were certified in this round, with other products in the pipeline. Telepacific moved into the Texas market a few years ago, and has been steadily expanding its foothold there. It seems like they might be ready to replicate that success in another market before long.
