A few items from last week or over the weekend worth checking into:
BullsEye Telecom has picked up some business in the healthcare vertical up in Michigan. Beaumont Health has selected the communications solutions provider to help provide voice lines for eight hospitals and 174 health centers. The initial agreement covers 150 POTS lines, with more possible in the future. Hopefully Beaumont will be leveraging BullsEye to move those over to VoIP next.
Cologix added some new faces to its management team last week. Laura Ortman joins the company as President and Chief Revenue Officer, and will be working on the company's strategic sales and revenue plan. Meanwhile, Dawn Smith will serve as the company's President and Chief Operating Officer, and will lead the company's strategic initiatives and real estate development as well as M&A activity. Ortman comes over from Equinix, while Smith moves over from McAfee.
Sabey has a new network tenant at its Intergate.Manhattan facility. Pilot Fiber has deployed its 12th NYC PoP in the facility as part of its ongoing metro footprint expansion in the city. Pilot is a young upstart in the fiber sector, and we had CEO Joe Fasone here for an Industry Spotlight a couple months ago.
And Uniti Fiber's Charity Golf tournament for the Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation is this week down in New Orleans. Telecom Ramblings is a sponsor again this year, this time for the Raffle, although I won't be able to attend in person. As of Saturday there were apparently still 6 spots open for the tournament, ante up!
