That's a long title, which is the result of four interesting partnership announcements and expansions, and hence eight companies working on things we should keep up with:

The Megaport and EdgeConneX have extended their partnership into Poland. Megaport has now deployed its elastic cloud connectivity platform within EdgeConneX's Warsaw facility. EdgeConneX bought the facility a year and a half ago from Linxdatacenter. Megaport has deployed its SDN-powered fabric in nine of EdgeConnex's markets so far.

ExteNet Systems is teaming up with RTO Wireless for CBRS networks. The two companies will be working together to deploy rural wireless connectivity in the 3.5Ghz band of shared spectrum. They'll be starting up in Maine and adding services in other rural Northeastern markets including upstate New York. It's part of Microsoft's Airband Initiative, which RTO Wireless has officially joined.

IX Reach has a new data center partner over in Europe. They are working with KevlinX, extending their platform into the new 68MW data center campus in Brussels, Belgium. KevlinX plans to build data center infrastructure outside the usual FLAP (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris) markets that dominate the infrastructure landscape. IX Reach was bought by BSO one year ago.

And ServerFarm has won an expanded relationship with Salute Mission Critical. Salute is now providing its 7x24 facilities engineering services at ServerFarm's Toronto data center. They are also integrating ServerFarm's InCommand technology into their own Global Command Center platform, which was just launched this past February.
