Int’l Roundup: Infinera, Telia, DE-CIX, DigiPlex

September 16th, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

Multiple bits of infrastructure news from across the Atlantic this morning:

Infinera won some subsea upgrade business over in southern Europe. The Greek telecommunications operator OTEGLOBE is deploying the company’e ICE4 technology on two cables between Greece and Italy, each spanning 350km. AAE-1 has a landing in Chania, Greeze, which OTEGLOBE markets as an alternative routing on the road from the Middle East and Asia to Europe. The upgrade more than double’s the current capacity, taking advantage of Infinera’s Nyquist subcarriers, SDFEC, and other advanced features.

Telia Carrier has made a move to further secure its internet backbone. The Swedish-based international network operator has implemented Resource Public Key Infrastructure. RPKI adds security to Telia Carrier’s route updates and BGP announcements, enabling other network operators to reject announcements from networks not authorized to advertise them. It’s been around for a while, but has taken a while to catch on.

DE-CIX is adding some more reach to its GlobePEER remote service. Starting in Q4, the company’s interconnection customers at DE-CIX Palermo will be able to leverage the service to peer remotely at the company’s other locations. It’s the 8th such market now interconnected via GlobePEER.

And DigiPlex has unveiled some expansion plans. The Nordic data center provider has broken ground on not one but two new facilities outside of Oslo, Norway. When complete, they will invest NOK600M in the project and add 8,500 square meters of space in all. One will be built at the existing campus at Fetsund, and the other on a newly acquired plot of land in Hobøl.
