Here's a midweek set of quick takes on network deals and trials from around the world:
Telia Carrier has won itself a new customer in North America, but south of the border. The Mexican service provider IENTC Telecomunicaciones has tapped them for IP transit backbone services. The deal is the expansion of an existing relationship, and will support IENTC's expansion in support of new television and MVNO endeavors. Telia entered Mexico two years ago.
ExteNet has been busy down in Philadelphia. They have deployed their advanced mobility network at One Penn Center, a 670K square foot commercial office building on JFK Boulevard in Center City. ExteNet's in-building DAS will enable better connectivity throughout the property for tenants and visitors alike.
Tampnet Carrier is bringing new interconnection capabilities to its footprint straddling the North Sea. They have partnered up with Megaport, giving their customers easier access to the 350+ network and cloud destinations available via Megaport's platform. Tampnet's infrastructure has evolved from the connectivity required by the oil and gas industry to rigs off in the middle of the North Sea back to the UK, NorwaY, Denmark, and Amsterdam.
And ADVA's gear has been put through its paces for 400Gbps over in Northern Europe. The Finnish University and Research Network (FUNET) has trialed ADVA's FSP 3000 Teraflex over a 2,844km link on its R&E network. They also demoed a 1200Gbps channel, using 2x400GbE over a live meshed ROADM infrastructure. They also successfully tested 600Gbps over 278km and 300Gbps as far as 4681km.
