Thursday Roundup: Zayo, BSO, CCMI, Equinix

July 13th, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Here’s a quick rundown on two expansions, one acquisition, and a customer win.

BSO has added two new North American PoPs this summer. The low latency network operator has added nodes within Equinix TR2 in Toronto and within Cologix Montreal. From there BSO will be able to better serve both the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Montréal Exchange. They’ll also have access to extensive interconnection opportunities in both markets.

Zayo’s Enterprise Networks division has revealed another unnamed customer win. A Fortune 500 healthcare company has selected Zayo’s IP VPN capabilities to expand the company’s WAN. The contract represents an expanded relationship with an existing customer and will provide 1G connectivity to more than 20 locations.

CCMI has made another acquisition, further expanding its telecom data offerings. They are buying FiberLocator from NEF, an online fiber mapping database. It’s the second deal in the past year by CCMI, following on the heels of the acquisition of i2Gemini and on the investment by Leeds Equity Partners which created CCMI’s parent company Simplify Compliance.

And Equinix is putting some more cash to work in the APAC region. They unveiled plans yesterday to invest $42M in the phase 2 expansion at the company’s SY4 IBX in Sydney, Australia. The expansion will take the facility to 3,000 cabinets in 12,500 square meters of total usable floor space, and is expected to be complete before the end of this year. SY4 just opened last August and is slated to house one end of the new Hawaiki cable system.
