A few interesting expansions of infrastructure and relationships worth noting from this week:
CenturyLink is expanding its data center presence in South America. The company is building upon the former Level 3 footprint down there with a new facility north of Santiago, Chile. Located in Huechuraba, the first phase will include one floor featuring 120 racks and 1.5MW of power, with a second floor on deck. They plan to leverage a new modular construction model to bring the facility online quickly.
Bluebird Network has unveiled plans for some more fiber out in the Show Me state. They have built out new metro infrastructure in Hannibal, Missouri, which lies about a hundred miles up the Mississippi from St. Louis. They've been working with the Hannibal Board of Public Works to get a head start on bandwidth demand in the city. Expansion of the buildout into neighboring communities is next on the menu.
Bullseye Telecom has expanded its relationship with Michican-based Sun Communities, a REIT that specializes in mobile home and RV developments around the country. The deal now covers broadband solutions in addition to the POTS and VoIP that were already a part of it. Sun has 400+ locations nationwide to hook up and is consolidating its infrastructure with Bullseye.
Connected2Fiber has added deep info on a key market destination to its Connected World platform. Colo Atl's facility at 55 Marietta Street in Atlanta has signed on with the platform, making it easier for users of the platform to locate opportunities within the data center's ecosystem. Connected2Fiber's platform reach is nearing the 10M location milestone now.
