An expansion, two product enhancements, and a contract win to note at mid-week:
DataGryd has finished up work on its MegaSuite 6 project, which it began back in January. The expansion adds 5MW of power and 72K square feet of spaceof capacity to DataGryd's portfolio at the iconic 60 Hudson Street carrier hotel in New York City. It's the company's first expansion into space on the 6th floor of that building, with Hylan performing the heavy lifting for the power infrastructure.
GTT is adding some CPE to its diet. They have announced an expansion of the company's SD-WAN services with the capability to run virtual network functions on the same uCPE device. That will let them bundle in things like firewall and WAN services for enterprise customers.
Masergy is also adding depth to its SD-WAN capabilities. They have launched integrated bundles combining SD-WAN and security, a combination that is definitely gaining favor in the enterprise market. More specifically, Masergy's bundles include unified threat management, threat monitoring and response, and managed security services.
And FirstLight has picked up some business in the insurance vertical up in upstate New York. New York Central Mutual Insurance has tapped the company for fiber-based Ethernet Private Line services. FirstLight's infrastructure will connect its Edmeston and Sherburne offices, which lie off the beaten path 20 or 30 miles west of Cooperstown in territory FirstLight expanded into with the Sovernet/ION deal.
