I've been on the road the past two days out at Cowen's Communications Infrastructure Summit, so here's a quick catch up on some news I didn't get to while I was out:
Zayo kicked off this week with a significant new win in the media vertical, albeit one without an actual name attached. An unnamed media company has picked them for managed Ethernet and IP hooking up some 50 sites across the country. The arrangement will see Zayo provision and manage a network built from E-LAN and DIA connectivity using its own assets as well as some external segments.
EarthLink is taking a swing at the emerging opportunity of SD-WAN. They are teaming up with VeloCloud to add a full-service SD-WAN offering to their portfolio sometime this fall. The software-defined wide area network promises to shake up the cozy world of VPN and MPLS services that service providers have been selling to the enterprise world for so long now. It's still pretty early in the process though.
Onvoy expanded its product set yesterday with the launch of SIP Trunking. They are making the business VoIP offering available via resale through their RLEC, MSP, and VAR channels. Not so coincidentally, SIP Trunking is something that ANPI specialized in, and of course Onvoy just completed the purchase of ANPI and its parent ANZ Communications.
And just this morning, NTT Communications picked up a new customer from the VoIP world. Telnyx will be using their IP transit and VPN capabilities to support growth both in the US and abroad. Telnyx has a cloud VoIP platform with nodes in Equinix facilities around the world.
