Metro Bytes: 123Net, FiberLight, DC BLOX, Colocation Northwest

September 19th, 2018 by · Leave a Comment

Two metro fiber deals and two regional data center upgrades worth noting from the start of this week:

123Net has picked up a deal with the City of Westland. They will be building out a WAN for the city, hooking up some 14 municipal buildings and anchor facilities with dark fiber backed up by fixed wireless. Westland may also add some colo space in 123Net’s Southfield data center.

FiberLight is going to be building additional fiber in northern Texas. They have won a deal to bring fiber to both the education and business community of Amarillo. The expansion will add another 70 route miles of metro and regional fiber to FiberLight’s network footprint, hooking up some 58 locations for the Amarillo Independent School District.

DC BLOX has finished up work on the first phase of its new data center down in HuntsVille, Alabama. They’ll be officially cutting the ribbon in two weeks, opening the doors on the first 9,000 square feet of data center and 3,600 square feet of office space. When fully built out the facility will support 36,000 square feet of data hall space.

And Colocation Northwest has finished an upgrade of its data center up in the Eastgate neighborhood of Bellevue, Washington. The facility now features 1MW of power, up from 250kw, and a new wing that has immediately been occupied by a ‘global top-5 video game publisher and distributor’. Colocation Northwest is a division of the regional ISP IsoFusion.
