Friday Bytes: ExteNet, QTS, Duocast, Sparkle

June 12th, 2020 by · Leave a Comment

Three network expansions and a new NAP to note before the weekend:

ExteNet has rolled out some significant vertical infrastructure in Philadelphia. The mobility and fiber connectivity provider has deployed in-building infrastructure at 1515 Market Street, a 20-story, 500K+ square foot office building in the heart of downtown and above one of the main central transportation hubs. They worked with Accesso and JLL in helping renovate the building's infrastructure.

QTS has launched the New Jersey Network Access Point. NJ NAP is a re-imagining of the company's Piscataway facility, bringing together the 360K square feet and 26MW of power they have there with access to the 10 transatlantic cables that land nearby along the Jersey Shore and Long Island and the extensive metro fiber depth available throughout the region interconnecting the many data centers nearby. Like the company's Richmond NAP, NJ NAP is both near the key cable landing stations and major market destinations and also safely inland and diverse from downtown infrastructure.

QTS also this week picked up a new customer over in the Netherlands. The Dutch ISP Duocast has established a PoP in QTS's Eemshaven facility, complementing their presence at QTS's Groningen location. Duocast now has a presence in eight locations in the Netherlands, four in Amsterdam, three in Groningen, and now one in Eemshaven.

And Sparkle has also been busy adding another PoP to its network back on its home turf. The international arm of TIM Group has added a presence at Tecnopolo Tiburtino in Rome, adding some capillarity to its metro presence in the Italian capital. Sparkle has been steadily adding such nodes it its nework worldwide over the last few years.
