Int’l Roundup: BDx, Orange, Cato, REN

April 8th, 2020 by · Leave a Comment

A few expansions and contract wins from around the globe to catch up with:

Big Data Exchange isn't letting the current global environment get in the way of its expansion plans. The data center and content-exchange provider has acquired a data center in Singapore, giving them a foothold beyond the Chinese and Hong Kong markets. The former Telstra facility is located in Paya Lebar and brings 1,800 racks and 7.3MW of power to the company's portfolio. BDx is also working on an organic expansion project in Nanjing.

Orange Business has won some additional business from AkzoNobel. The Dutch international paint and coatings firm is leveraging Orange's SD-WAN, multi-sourcing integration, security, and consulting services in support for centralizing its network and IT infrastructure. This kind of multinational enterprise infrastructure deal is Orange Business's bread and butter, of course.

Cato Networks has raised another pile of cash for its expansion plans. The Israeli-based SASE platform provider announced yesterday a $77M investment round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, bringing their total funding rounds above $200M. Cato Networks says it has had a very strong Q1 following a big 2019. Secure Access Service Edge technology seems to be coming of age this year.

And RETN has added another endpoint in the key European hub of Frankfurt. They have added a PoP at maincubes' FRA01 facility, adding more depth to the company's global network. maincubes operates facilities in both Frankfurt and Amsterdam. The German managed services provider eferod GmbH is RETN's first IP transit customer in the new PoP. efero needed better connectivity into eastern European markets.
