Christmas weekend is approaching rapidly, but here's a few more quick-takes first:
Huawei Marine has a new project up in the Arctic Ocean. They are partnering with Tele Greenland to deploy a new cable system along the western coast of Greenland. They will also be upgrading Greenland Connect, which hooks the island up to both Iceland and North America. The Greenland Connect North cable will connect four towns along the Greenland coast with an initial 100G, expandable all the way up to 4.8T.
Zayo is opening up a new vertical to sell big bandwidth to. They have sold dark fiber and wavelengths to a personal genomics company. The dark fiber will connect the company's HQ and data center, with waves hooking those up to the satellite offices. DNA sequencing technologies process vast amounts of data, and as it becomes more cost effective for a wider range of customer the bandwidth requirements will definitely not be minor.
Hibernia Networks has a new PoP in New York City. They've brought the ColocationGuard facility out in Brooklyn on-net, from which customers will be able to access their IP network and transatlantic routes. Hibernia will soon be part of the GTT family if things go according to plan.
And Faction is tossing its hat into the interconnection arena. The IaaS specialist has unveiled the Faction Internetwork eXchange (FIX), which will be aiming to interconnect enterprises directly with the cloud. The SDN-powered offering lets enterprises build hybrid clouds over existing infrastructure, with access into all the big public cloud destinations.
