ITW Roundup: FirstLight, PacketFabric, UPN, Peerless

June 26th, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

Seems as if ITW has gone pretty well down in Atlanta so far, wish I could be there in person this time (next year).  Here is a set of service expansions announced at the conference, two adding new international reach and two adding new services capabilities:

FirstLight has added another cloud-based service to its portfolio up in the northeastern US. They have added Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) with the help of technology from Veeam. FirstLight provides cloud-based services to enterprises across its own infrastructure, which stretches from Maine to Lake Erie to New York City.

Packetfabric has officially extended its reach down under for the first time with a new presence at Equinix's SY4 facility in Sydney. The NaaS provider is leveraging the Hawaiki cable to open its first PoP in the APAC region. I suspect they will be adding a few others to go with it later in 2019.

Out in the Midwest, UPN has also launched some new capabilities. They have introduced a new API for carrier pricing and ordering, making it possible for wholesale customers to plug directly into its systems. By simplifying the quoting and provisioning processes, they hope to sell more capacity on their regional and metro infrastructure via the wholesale route.

And Peerless Network has expanded its voice solutions across the Atlantic and into the UK. They are now offering telephone numbers for purchase in the UK. UK enterprises can use the service to purchase US phone numbers and turn up services in an automated fashion, making it easier to manage business communications that regularly cross the pond.
