One infrastructure deal, one cloud connectivity deployments, and two network upgrade wins by vendors:
Zayo picked up another enterprise deal late last week. They will be delivering multiple infrastructure products to an unnamed multinational bank. The bank is leveraging zColo space out west, dark fiber hooking up that space to the bank's core data centers, and wavelengths spanning nine markets to upgrade its network.
SES Networks is now offering a new cloud option to customers of its satellite-based network. They are now providing direct connectivity to the IBM Cloud. With CE 2.0 services provided via its O3b satellite constellation and direct cloud connectivity, SES Networks is making it much easier to integrate such links into traditional networks where appropriate.
Juniper Networks has won a convert to its Metro Fabric solutions. The global service provider Epsilon is deploying Juniper's gear as part of its 100Gb Ethernet global expansion. Epsilon's network includes MX10003 routers at the MPLS core backed by ACX5048 routers and BTI packet optical systems in the metro. Juniper bought BTI Systems a couple years ago. According to the announcement, Epsilon's upgrade is aimed at powering IoT and enterprise services.
And Infinera has won a key metro deal over in the UK. TalkTalk is deploying the company's XTM II platform to help power its metro aggregation network. TalkTalk is now finding 10G waves just are not enough, and is using Infinera's gear to activate 100G/200G waves on demand on its dark fiber aggregation networks. That boosts its total potential capacity per fiber from 400Gbps to 8Tbps with the possibility of doubling that if needed.
