Here's a quick rundown of some other news from this week:
Telia Carrier added some depth close to home this week. They have deployed a PoP in DigiPlex's data center north of Stockholm, Sweden, following on the success of a similar deployment near Oslo in neighboring Norway. Telia's global backbone has been sitting on top of the rankings at Dyn Research after years of steady expansion efforts.
ADVA has picked up another regional customer for its FSP 3000 platform. New York's NYSERNet has deployed the gear for its statewide research and education network. NYSERNet is leveraging the gear's cloud connectivity and ROADM capabilities to blend capacity with automation.
Vonage found some success penetrating the retail healthcare market this week. The VoIP company has spent the last few years retooling itself for business communications, and will be providing cloud communications to MyEyeDr, a national optometry provider. MyEyeDr has some 370 locations, with plans to expand that to 600 over the next few years.
128 Technology has new partners to help take its SD-WAN solutions to a wider market. They are teaming with Arrow Electronics and Lanner to combine 128T's Session Smart routing with Lanner's uCPE appliances and Arrow's global supply chain. We had 128 Technology's COO on here for an Industry Spotlight last summer.
And Zayo has closed its recent acquisition of Neutral Path. The deal gives Zayo a deep, modern fiber network between Minneapolis and Omaha. They'll be leveraging that fiber to provide more dark and lit services from Minneapolis, where they have long had a particularly deep metro footprint, to other regional markets.
