Thursday Roundup: Anova, Telxius, Arc, Connected2Fiber

A few bytes of news worth catching up on:

Anova Financial Networks is preparing to cut off a few more microseconds in New Jersey. They have tested and will shortly be deploying a new microwave link between the key financial nodes in Mahwah and Secaucus. In addition to the lower latency, capacity will be boosted by a factor of 5. The existing low latency route will stay in place as the ‘high availability’ route.

In the Middle East, a new joint venture is taking on the problem of intra-regional connectivity. Bahrain’s Batelco and the UAE’s du have teamed up to form Arc. The idea is to develop a single regional platform for interconnection with an initial presence spanning 30 PoPs in major data centers and connecting to multiple subsea cable systems.

Telxius has built out some new infrastructure on the Spanish end of MAREA. They have launched a purpose-built communications hub in Derio, a few miles away from the cable landing station in northern Spain. It’s a combination cable landing station, interconnection hub, and international PoP featuring 2,000 square meters of space and up to 4MW of renewable power.

And Connected2Fiber has raised another round of funding to power the ongoing expansion of its infrastructure data business. Silicon Valley Bank is providing $1.5M via a new loan, a sum that will go toward keeping the company’s SaaS revenue growth going. The company raised $8M last year and then $5.3M just three months ago as well.
