Here's a few quick takes on other news from this week worth noting:
Orange Business Services has won a global connectivity deal with Midea. Midea is a Chinese provider of consumer appliances, and will be using Orange's services to hook up 37 sites worldwide in a multi-cloud environment complete with SLAs. This is a bread-and-butter sort of deal for Orange Business of course.
Calix is working with Verizon to bring new speeds to its FTTH network. They have tested bonded an NG-PON2 ONT prototype on Verizon's fiber network up at the Verizon Innovation Center in Waltham MA. The two companies were able to achieve 34Gbps, getting more out of multiple wavelengths than the original waves could deliver on their own.
Aryaka is taking its managed SD-WAN into new territories. They have introduced HybridWAN, integrating layer 2 and managed internet connectivity for greater flexibility. Along with zone-based firewall capabilities and micro-segmentation, they hope to make it easier for enterprises to solve the problems they want to solve as they migrate to a more modern network infrastructure.
Juniper has won a convert over to its Contrail SD-WAN. The French managed service provider PYXYA is using the solution, as well as a laundry list of other Juniper technology, to serve its enterprise customer base. PYXYA is looking to disrupt existing models by delivering SD-WAN over the top of existing network deployments.
And DE-CIX has expanded its presence in Munich, Germany. They have upgraded their infrastructure at EdgeConneX's facility at Landsberger Strasses to a full 1 terabyte in response to growing customer demand. EdgeConneX just expanded into Munich earlier this year.
