Four interesting items from midweek worth keeping an eye on:
Megaport has expanded its virtual routing services. The Megaport Cloud Router now enables private, on-demand connections out of 19 metro areas on four continents and into and between over 130 cloud on-ramps globally. They are targeting the service at hybrid and multi-cloud solutions.
Four months after its acquisition of IX Reach, BSO says that it has successfully integrated the assets together. BSO's network now has a deeper US metro presence, additional connectivity into South Africa, Russia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney, more cloud on-ramps, and a significantly broader ecosystem.
The SEA-ME_WE-5 cable system got an upgrade from Ciena, according to an announcement this week. The upgrade gives them 100% more capacity between the markets of Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. Capacity per wave was boosted to 300Gbps, lowering the cost per bit substantially.
