A few more news items worth noting before heading home for the weekend:

Ciena has won the favor of a regional fiber network project in Colorado. The Northwest Colorado Council of Governments picked the vendor and its partners to build Project THOR, which will put 400 route miles in place to reach some 230K people. The deployment was facilitated through Graybar, while Mammoth Networks will actually operate the network. Ciena's Waveserver Ai and 5170 switch as well as its Blue Planet software will power the network.

eStruxture has bought its way into a new market. The Canadian data center provider has acquired the Calgary-1 data center from Shaw Communications in Calgary, Alberta, adding 65,000 square feet of space to their portfolio. The two companies have also entered into a multi-year agreement that will let Shaw resell colo out of the facility. eStructure has three data centers in the Montreal metro area, and two out in Vancouver.

Infinera will have a new Chief Financial Officer in a few weeks. Nancy Erba has been appointed as SVP Strategic Finance and will be elevated to CFO effective on August 26. She most recently held the CFO role at Immersion Corp. Current CFO Brad Feller announced his intention to resign by the end of Q3 back in May.

And Superloop is deploying some Cisco gear on its subsea footprint. They are putting the Cisco NCS 1004 on the INDIGO West and Central cables, which connect Singapore with Perth and then Perth with Sydney with two fiber pairs. Each leg stretches about 4,600km, and with Cisco's help will support 4.8Tbps each of client and trunk traffic on 2RU of space.
