May 24th, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

Memorial Day weekend has almost arrived, so maybe summer has also after a bit of a rocky spring.  Here are a few last tidbits of news first though:

Bluebird Network finished off some work out in Missouri this week. The Midwestern operator has completed a new metro/regional fiber build out to Weldon Spring, located in St. Charles County just west of St. Louis. Bluebird is in the process of being acquired by Macquarie right now of course, as well as a parallel transaction with Uniti for the latter's Illinois footprint.

Eurofiber has been busy upgrading its presence at the maincubes AMS01 facility in Amsterdam Schiphol-Rijk. The Netherlands-based fiber operator has a full DWDM PoP, bringing as much as 1.7Tbps to bear within the data center's ecosystem. maincubes also recently saw an upgraded presence from DE-CIX back in its home market of Frankfurt.

Napatech has raised a bundle of cash to accelerate its business model. They have completed a private placement of $8.7M which will go toward developing the growth of the company's FPGA-based hardward and software products. The funding round was underwritten by a 'a group of well-known European investors'.

Teridion has announced a deep integration with Cisco technology this week. The solution pairs Teridion's cloud WAN capabilities with Cisco's Meraki MX Security and SD-WAN appliances. With that Teridion has announced general availability of the combined cloud-based enterprise WAN solution.
