Here's a quick look at some interesting items from around the world today:
Level 3's Latin American division continued to roll, racking up another enterprise deal this week. The Ecuadorian newspaper El Comercio has selected the company's CDN services to improve the delivery of content from its website to its readers. Most of the action in South America comes from Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina, so it's nice to see Ecuador's bandwidth market get a little press.
Verizon picked up an enterprise cloud deal out in the Far East. The European insurance group Ageas has picked the company's cloud as the underlying infrastructure for its wealth management trading platform out in Hong Kong, where it is one of the biggest life insurance players. Verizon will be both hosting and managing the necessary IT infrastructure in its Hong Kong data center.
And Ciena says it has won a key contract in the Middle East. Saudi Telecom Company is deploying Ciena's packet-optical and GeoMesh technologies as part of its international infrastructure. The gear will enable OTN and Ethernet service delivery on the company's routes between Saudi Arabia and France.
