Four bits of expansion news from around the network world worth noting as we end the week:
Hurricane Electric has found another data center to hook up to its global IPv6-native backbone. They have added a PoP at Quicktel's 4 Data Center Katowice, which is located in the city of Katowice in southern Poland. HE seems to have found some success in the Polish bandwidth market, as this is their third PoP in the country now.
JaxNAP and Seaborn Networks are teaming up for some international connectivity. The two announced this week that JaxNAP's facility will host Seaborn's US endpoint for their piece of the AMX-1 subsea cable between the US and Rio de Janeiro. Seaborn now has a half fiber pair on the cable, which was built by America Movil a few years back, complementing Seabras-1.
Bluebird Network has been busy with some more metro fiber back in their home turf in the state of Missouri. The latest build adds 21-miles of fiber infrastructure in the city of Joplin, and will enable Bluebird to hook up additional businesses and enterprises and to better meet overall demand
And on the peering front, NYIIX and PacketFabric have partnered up for a bit of interconnection. The arrangement gives NYIIX connectivity to any PacketFabric PoP and vice versa. NYIIX is the internet exchange operated by TELEHOUSE America with peering in NY, NJ, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles.
