One by sea, one by land, and two by api:
AquaComms offered an update yesterday on its North Atlantic Loop buildout. Along with its piece of HAVFRUE cable, AquaComms is building CeltixConnect-2 across the Irish Sea and North Sea Connect between Newcastle and Denmark. The survey vessels have started to mobilize for both projects, and manufacturing plans will be confirmed in the next few weeks. Both cables are supposed to go live late next year sometime.
Infinera has picked up a new customer for its optical gear down in South America. The Brazilian telecommunications group Aloo Telecom is deploying both Infinera's DTN-X in the longhaul and Infinera's Cloud Xpress technology for data center interconnect. Aloo's network spans 14 Brazilian states, and the deployment will arm them with the necessary bandwidth to support the country's businesses as they shift to the cloud.
And Connected2Fiber had a good week last week, winning two new converts to its infrastructure data platform. The midwestern fiber builder and operator Unite Private Networks is using the technology to better compile and distribute on-net and near-net building lists to its carrier and service provider customers. And Cloud Age Solutions is integrating the platform's Network Finder module and API Engine into its own gpxcloud platform, enabling them to offer building tenant data to their software and consulting clients.
