Metro Bytes: FirstLight, euNetworks, UPN, 1025Connect

October 18th, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Here are a few news mid-week news items:

FirstLight Fiber has picked up another bit of government business up in New England. The New Hampshire Judicial Branch has tapped FirstLight to support its 82 courts in 38 locations statewide. FirstLight will connect those locations to its Manchester data center, which will help power the branch’s IT infrastructure with enterprise security and disaster recovery.

euNetworks has a new partner in its ecosystem. The pan-European network operator announced yesterday that it is working with Cloudwirx, a California-based systems integrator and agent. Cloudwirx will be leveraging euNetworks western European infrastructure to meet the needs of its mostly-USA client base. euNetworks has metro reach across 14 key markets in the region.

Unite Private Networks has announced an expansion project across four of its states. They will be adding small cell sites to their network in support of two major wireless carriers in Dallas and Denton in Texas, Kansas City in both Kansas and Missouri, and Des Moines, Iowa. The deployment will take UPN’s small cell footprint to more than 600 sites.

And out on Long Island, 1025Connect is going to see its infrastructure enhanced. 1025 Old Country Road, the property that houses the data center, has closed a $14M senior secured credit facility, and will put the new funds toward a significant expansion of the data center and meet-me room infrastructure. They’ll be needing that to meet growing demand from network operators for its combination of subsea and terrestrial fiber access outside of downtown Manhattan.
