Here's some other news from the start of this week that is worth a look:
Epsilon has been busy on the US east coast this week. On Monday they established interconnection points at NJFX in New Jersey and at 1025Connect on Long Island. And today they did the same thing down in northern Virginia at the LINX NoVA internet exchange, which reaches into CoreSite, Digital Realty, and EvoSwitch facilities in the region. In both cases, Epsilon is making its Infiny on-demand connectivity platform available.
Telia has taken its global backbone down to Central America. The Costa Rican Provider ICE has picked Telia's network to bring a 100G IP transit service to its customers in Costa Rica and the surrounding countries. Telia's network reaches down to ICE via the Maya-1 cable system, and will be providing DDoS protection as well.
