Here's a quick look at some news items from across the sector from early this week:
LightRiver Technologies has helped NV Energy upgrade its network out in Nevada. NV Energy leveraged LightRiver's Factory Built Network process to help with a major upgrade of the Las Vegas-based power utility's network infrastructure. LightRiver doesn't get to talk about its work too often, working behind the scenes.
Infinera has successfully tested its Infinite Capacity Engine on a subsea cable. The gear demonstrated its ability to boost Canalink's capacity by a factor of 13 using QPSK, 8QAM, Nyquist subcarriers, and SD-FEC. Canalink connects Spain and the Canary Islands, spanning 1,393km.
Megaport says it has delivered capacity between Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, California. The Australian-based interconnection provider has been invading the US and European markets over the last few years, of course. This news suggests they have sufficient traction to start tying it all together, enabling enterprises in their individual markets more interconnection options, globally.
And up in Alaska, GCI has picked technology from Aricent and Monolith Software to integrate and manage its enterprise infrastructure. Aricent's autonomous networks capabilities and Monolith's analytics will enable GCI to unify its service assurance across its footprint.
