Here's a quick look at some news from early this week and late last week:
Lumos Networks posted its second quarter numbers yesterday, revealing revenues of $56.4M, EBITDA of $25.5M, and net income of $0.02 per share. Those were pretty much as expected by analysts, and will probably be the last we hear from Lumos as a public company. EQT Infrastructure will be taking the reins as soon as they get regulatory approval from one more state and from the FCC, which the two companies expect to happen in the next 90 days.
BSO has moved into a new global market this week. The global low latency specialist has added direct connectivity to Taiwan, hooking up the Taipei Internet Exchange to the nearby APAC markets of Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo. BSO has been focusing on improving connectivity to global markets across the financial vertical's less traveled routes.
Late last week, Limelight Networks' CDN picked up a key APAC customer. NTT Docomo will be using Limelight's infrastructure to deliver firmware updates and handle traffic spikes. NTT Docomo serves some 70M mobile customers in the dense markets of Japan these days with over 50% market share, so having an efficient delivery system is rather important.
And Interoute has a new cloud storage solution to bring to market. They have built the new service off of Cloudian's HyperStore object storage technology. It will be available across 17 markets, offer petabytes of space with more to come, and the ability to control where one's data is stored in order to be in compliance with the looming regulatory morass of GDPR.
