September 5th, 2018 by · Leave a Comment

It's been a busy week for infrastructure news from overseas, here are a few more items worth noting:

GTT says it has lined up another SD-WAN customer over in Europe. Europac Group plans to build upon its former relationship with Interoute and deploy GTT's SD-WAN services to upgrade its European network. Europac is using the connectivity to hook up 18 factories and 5 waste management facilities in the countries of Spain, France, and Portugal.

Interxion has landed a new enterprise-focused cloud customer. The Cloud AI and machine learning specialist Paperspace is expanding into Europe, and it's doing so via Interxion Schiphol at its Amsterdam data center campus. They'll use that to better serve growing demand from European customers.

And Huawei Marine has finished off the marine portion of another subsea cable project. The South Atlantic Inter Link is now fully connected, with both landing stations in Kribi, Cameroon and Fortaleza Brazil hooked up. With a design capacity of 32Tbps over four fiber pairs, it's the first time the continents of Africa and South America have had a direct fiberoptic link. China Unicom and CAMTEL are the network operators behind the project.
