Here's a set of network infrastructure quick-takes to catch up on:
Telia Carrier and ZenFi have inked a strategic partnership this week. ZenFi will help Telia get around the New York/New Jersey metro region with their 1.1K route mile footprint. And Telia will provide ZenFi with network reach to global destinations via Telia's 300-PoP and 120 market footprint. The agreement is an expansion of an existing relationship, ensuring quick deployments and reduced downtime and such.
The cloud networking company neutrality.one has teamed up with two global infrastructure players to extend its reach. They are collaborating with PCCW Global, gaining access to Console Connect and all the destinations reachable via the software-defined platform. And they have also chosen datamena in Dubai, where they will deploy a point of presence from which they will be able to offer connectivity to another wide ecosystem.
Ocean Networks has been awarded a multi-year contract to repurpose out-of-service submarine cable systems. The systems, which are just sitting unused on the ocean floor after being decommissioned in favor of newer infrastructure, will find new life supporting ocean science and research. The announcement doesn't say who is doing the awarding, but it's the company's subsidiary Submarine Cable Salvage Inc that won the contract.
And Heficed is rolling out Take Away IPs. The idea is to enable customers to take leased IP addresses to their own network infrastructure via an automated process rather than just assign them to servers on Heficed's servers. The capability will enhance the company's IPXO business entity, which is also working on a BYOIP capabilities.
