Here's a quick look at some other news from this week that's worth a look:
Windstream's SD-WAN won a convert this week from the healthcare vertical. An unnamed multi-state urgent care provider has selected Windstream to provide managed fiber, broadband, and SD-WAN services to its 60+ locations across five states. Windstream is busy these days integrating the EarthLink and Broadview assets into its enterprise and carrier businesses and has been adding fiber to its diet organically over the last few years as well.
LimeLight Networks has also been able to crow about a contract win this week. WorkCast is using the company's CDN to deliver cloud-based webinar, webcasting, and online events to several hundred organizations worldwide. WorkCast is leveraging LimeLight's multi-device Media Delivery services to serve video to as many as 15,000 simultaneous viewers.
Southern Cross and EGS have finished the marine survey for its NEXT cable system. Surveying more than 15,000km, they managed to shave some latency off of previously expectations by shifting from Tongan waters to those of Wallis and Futuna. When complete sometime in late 2019, the cable system is expected to bring 60Tbps of capacity between Australia/New Zealand and California. They also found a shipwreck 37 miles off of Sydney.
And CoreSite has revealed two new relationships this week. Mammoth Networks has joined the data center operator's Open Cloud Exchange at its Denver facility. That will let Wyoming-based Mammoth provide direct connectivity to Microsoft's Azure cloud to the company's regional customers. And Expereo is moving into CoreSite's Miami data center, from which it will offer 10Gbps links to Latin America for its cloud acceleration product. They are also now a member of the CoreSite marketplace.
