Some interesting items from around the world to end the week on:
Colt has some new hyperscale plans for Osaka. The company's data center division has acquired a site in the Japanese mega-city upon which it will build its third hyperscale data center in the country. Their other two are at the Inzai campus just east of Tokyo.
SES Networks now has more infrastructure to play with. The satellite network operator had four new O3b satellites launched into middle earth orbit yesterday. That gives them 20 so far in the O3b constellation, which targets cruise lines as well as the oil & gas industry with fiber-like bandwidth options.
The Canadian operator Fibrenoire is making a move into SD-WAN. They have added VeloCloud's VMware SD-WAN solution to the company's portfolio. Fibrenoire is a division of Videotron, which acquired the independent fiber operator of that name three years ago and combined it with their business solutions division.
And Scandinavia is getting some new interconnection infrastructure. Netnod has launched new regional and capabilities, including point-to-point transport and VLAN, connecting its IX together to provide a new peering solution. The deal lets networks in the Nordics access Netnod's exchanges via on-net locations in Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo. The VLAN also connects to NIX, the Norwegian Internet eXchange.
