Int’l Bytes: EllaLink, IX Reach, Seaborn, Anova

October 24th, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

Several interesting global infrastructure items have hit the wires this week, here's a quick look:

Ellalink and Global Parks are teaming up to create a new tech hub in Sines, Portugal. EllaLink is busy building a submarine cable across the Atlantic between Sines, Portugal and Fortaleza, Brazil, and a little infrastructure development on the former end certainly makes sense. The Sines Tech Hub would gather land, power, and access to backhaul routes to European destinations in one location, enabling the development of new data center infrastructure.

IX Reach has added a few more nodes to its network. They have partnered with Evoque Data Centers Solutions to add a presence within Evoque's facilities in Amsterdam, London, Paris, and Hong Kong. Evoque was formed out of a collection of AT&T colo assets that were sold to Brookfield Infrastructure in a deal that closed last winter. IX Reach will take its SDN and cloud connectivity platform to the tenants of those facilities.

And just this morning, Seaborn and Anova Financial Networks are teaming up for some low latency action. The two have partnered up to create a new, lowest-latency path between Chicago CM3 and the B3 Exchange in São Paulo, Brazil. They are hooking up Anova's ULL microwave connection between Chicago and New Jersey with Seaborn's cable system Seabras-1 between New Jersey and Brazil, with the actual interconnection happening in Carteret NJ. Both companies will be able to take the new route to market.
