There have been multiple interesting partnerships announced in the metro fiber market this week worth keeping an eye on:
ZenFi has revamped its lit services across the NY/NJ metro area. They have tapped Integration Partners to upgrade, expand, and operate the company’s nextgen lit network capabilities. The solution leverages technology from Ciena, Juniper, Arista, and Palo Alto Networks and will better serve enterprise customers in need of 100G and 400G connectivity. ZenFi’s NY/NJ metro footprint now extends some 1100 route miles.
STACK Infrastructure is teaming up with WAVE for metro fiber reach up in Hillsboro, Oregon. The data center provider’s new Portland campus will be hooked up to the Wave Business Hillsboro Data Center Ring II, offering direct access to major longhaul routes, submarine cable systems, the Pittock IX, and a variety of cloud destinations. Wave’s ring is 3,456-strands deep and will now hook up some 13 data centers in Hillsboro.
Oak Hill Capital is putting resources to work in upstate New York with Ontario & Trumansburg Telephone Companies. OTTC and Oak Hill have formed a strategic partnership to expand the former’s FTTH network to new markets across the region. OTTC has been deploying Corning’s FlexNAP technology across some 600 miles of fiber, and Oak Hill likes the result enough to back an expansion of that project to additional geographies.
And down in Texas, LOGIX Fiber Networks is working on its indirect sales reach. This week the regional and metro fiber operator announced a new partnership with the master agent MicroCorp. The deal will pair LOGIX’s extensive fiber footprint with MicroCorp’s partner ecosystem, thus reaching more potential customers and accelerating revenue growth. LOGIX’s footprint in Texas and Oklahoma hooks up 3000+ on-net buildings via 6200 route miles of metro fiber and 2800 route miles of intercity fiber.
