A few interesting bits of infrastructure to keep an eye on:
NJFX has announced new WAN options spanning three continents. At the WAN Summit this week the company announced the new capabilities leveraging partners such as Norway's Bulk Infrastructure and Latin America's Neutrona Networks. Combined with NJFX's position on the New Jersey shoreline, the ecosystem can provide WAN services between Europe, North America, and South America.
FirstLight has expanded its portfolio to include encrypted wavelengths. The new service offers in-flight encrypted transport at layer 1 without adding major overhead or latency. They'll be offering the encrypted wavelength option to both carrier and enterprise customers across the company's northeastern footprint.
Hawaiki has added another endpoint to its subsea cable infrastructure. The company has extended its presence in the Pacific Northwest into Seattle's Westin Building Exchange. The Hawaiki cable connects Oregon with New Zealand and Australia via Hawaii and came online last summer. Seattle is a key destination of course, and having a PoP there was in the plans there from the beginning I'm sure.
And PacketFabric continued to expand its presence in the southwest yesterday with a new PoP in Arizona. The company's CaaS platform has extended into phoenixNAP, which also happens to be an AWS Direct Connect edge location. PacketFabric started the week with an expansion to Switch in Las Vegas.
