Four interesting bits of infrastructure expansion news from four metros worth taking a look at one fiber, one fixed wireless, and two datacenter:
123Net continues to expand its reach up in Michigan. Yesterday they added a new fixed wireless PoP in Romulus, north of Detroit Metropolitan Airport and their 57th such node. From there they will be able to offer 1Gbps to businesses in Romulus, Wayne, and Westland. 123Net blends fiber, fixed wireless, and colo to serve the Michigan marketplace.
Cascadia FiberNet is looking to add another fiber option up in the Pacific Northwest. Starting in March they will be constructing a new 864-strand cable between the Harbour Center in Vancouver and the Westin Building Exchange in Seattle. If all goes well, the new fiber should be ready 12 months later. AFL Network Services will be providing construction and engineering services to the project.
EdgeConneX has made an inorganic move over in Europe. This week they announced the acquisition of a data center at Landsberger Strasse 155 in Munich, Germany. The Bavarian facility becomes the company's ninth facility in Europe, and will be ready for new customers next quarter. EdgeConnex made a similar move a couple months ago to enter Warsaw to the east.
And in Manhattan, DataGryd has announced plans to further expand its footprint at 60 Hudson. They are building out MegaSuite 6, backed by 1MW or power and a cooling load of 280 tons. The new space will come online in Q2 of this year. We had Datagryd's Tom Brown and Art Valhuerdi here for a spotlight in March of last year where he talked about the company's expansion plans within the iconic NYC carrier hotel.
