A few more interesting items from this week before the long weekend:
Zayo has polished off a dark fiber network back in its home turf of Colorado. They have completed a 600-route mile metro network for the Denver Public Schools, including 50 route miles of new build, connecting up some 132 schools around the city via multiple fiber rings. The build boosts capacity for DPS schools by some 500%, enabling both educational resources for students as well as security initiatives.
EllaLink has figured out a big piece of its terrestrial network on the European end of its proposed transatlantic cable system. They have signed an agreement with the Portuguese network operator RENTELECOM for a dark fiber ring connecting up the landing station in Sines with key data centers in Lisbon and Madrid. EllaLink's cable will directly connect Europe with Brazil, initially offering 72Tbps of capacity across 4 fiber pairs.
QTS has added a new, high-profile tenant in two key data centers. Telia Carrier, fresh off of builds in QTS facilities in Atlanta dn Richmond has added network PoPs at QTS's Chicago and Miami locations as well. Telia Carrier has been investing in its US network presence at a steady pace for some time now, adding new PoPs to its market reach and leasing dark fiber on key routes.
And in the IoT world, Siyata Mobile has launched an interesting new device up in Sweden. It's a dedicated in-vehicle device that provides voice and data services for commercial vehicles, incorporating and streamlining multiple capabilities into one device while leveraging push-to-talk-over-cellular technology.
