One new partnership, two new PoPs and a metro fiber acquisition:
Peerless Network took another step into the channel this week. The VoIP and UCaaS specialist has signed up Sandler Partners to a new master agent agreement. The deal will bring Sandler's 7,000 sales agents to bear, bringing Peerless's network to enterprises of all sizes nationwide. We had Peerless CEO John Barnicle on here a few days ago for an Industry Spotlight where he shed some light on opportunities the companies see in the enterprise market.
Hurricane Electric has pushed its global IP backbone deeper into Cleveland, Ohio. They have deployed a new PoP at H5 Data Centers' facility at 1625 Rockwell Avenue. H5 bought this facility a little less than three years ago, adding some 350K square feet of space to the company's footprint at the time at power pricing of less than six cents per killowatt-hour. For its part, HE continues to steadily add nodes to its network on virtually all fronts.
DE-CIX has deployed another node for its interconnection fabric in New York City. They have expanded into NYI's NY2 data center at 60 Hudson Street, building on an existing relationship between the two companies. The deal will let NYI add access to DE-CIX's global interconnection capabilities to its suite of managed services. DE-CIX now has three access points within the iconic carrier hotel at 60 Hudson, and 14 switches total in the NYC metro area.
And finally, Digital Colony has struck again, this time north of the border. The joint investment arm of Digital Bridge and Colony Capital has acquired Beanfield Technologies, a metro and last mile operator up in Canada. Beanfield operates 366 route kilometers of infrastructure in Toronto and Montreal connecting up 367 commercial sites, 161 multi-dwelling units, and 13 data centers. Digital Colony has been busy this year, and still is busy finishing up the Zayo purchase of course.
