A few news items to catch up on from midweek:
Avelacom has a new PoP out in Silicon Valley. The low latency networking specialist has built into Equinix SV1 in San Jose, California and set up AWS Direct Connect. The new infrastructure will give Avelacom's customers direct access to more crypto markets for bitcoin and other next generation currencies. Cryptocurrency trading has definitely been on the rise of late.
Out in Nebraska, 1623 Farnam has a new partner to help with their expansion project. They have teamed up with the engineering and design firm Olsson for the $40M project to handle the multi-level commissioning process. The project was first announced last June, and will convert floors 6 through 9 of the building into data center space, bringing the footprint up to 75,000 square feet across 8 floors.
Also out in the Midwest, Indiana-based ISP Xiber has tapped Ciena for a network upgrade across the region. They are deploying Ciena Adaptive IP solution, underlying gear, and MCP domain controller to virtualize the network. Xiber will use the newly SDN and NFV-powered network to serve the network needs of 250 retail stores across their 6-state footprint.
And ADTRAN's gear just went live on the Openreach platform. The UK FTTH provider turned up its first subscriber on ADTRAN's GPON solution yesterday. That process is expected to accelerate now, as Openreach aims to turn up gigabit fiber services to 20M homes by the mid-to-late 2020s.
