Here's a quick rundown on some other news from this week that's worth a look:
Connected2Fiber has won another convert to its SaaS platform. INDATEL is implementing both the company's Connected World platform and the Building List Manager as part of an effort to better manage its network reach. INDATEL's network is a composite of 29 regional member networks that together span 100K route miles. Keeping track of assets and capabilities across those disparate footprints is definitely a key to the company's success.
Windstream is moving quickly to integrate Broadview Networks' capabilities. Yesterday they announced an update to the company's UCaaS portfolio, pairing Broadview's OfficeSuite platform with Windstream's own SD-WAN offering. The combination will be targeted at all levels of the enterprise market. Winstream recently roiled the markets a bit by eliminating its dividend, and is in the midst of integrating both EarthLink and Broadview.
Coriant picked up a customer over in Europe. Germany's 1&1 Versatel is using the company's mTera solution to upgrade capacity and capabilities for the company's national network. That network spans 42,000km while hooking up over 250 German cities. Coriant's gear is already in major backbone sites, with regional deployments on the way.
Interxion has another new tenant in at its Marseille data center. The Indian IT specialist Sify Technologies has established a PoP in MRS1 from which it will provide international services to its enterprise customers back in India. The new cable systems landing in the area have added to Marseille's lure to providers of all types.
