A few network items to catch up on from late last week:
Comcast Business has added some business in the sports vertical out in Denver. They have partnered with the Colorado Rockies to equip Coors Field with dual gigabit Ethernet connections and SD-WAN services. The Rockies will use the network upgrade to support both the fan experience and their own business operations.
Tenebris Fiber took another step toward a new fiber network for Virginia. They have teamed up with Black & Veach subsidiary Diode Ventures and with the financial guys at JLC Infrastructure to prepare to build a new 680-mile regional network between Virginia Beach and Ashburn. The first phase would connect Ashburn and Manassas via underground, ultra-low latency connectivity. Hylan's Down Under Construction subsidiary will be leading the engineering, procurment, and construction. Design and permitting is underway, with construction to start in the second half of this year.
Zayo is upgrading its European footprint with some bigger bandwidth with some help from Ciena. They are deploying Ciena's WaveLogix 5 Extreme technology between Dublin and Amsterdam. The move enables 400G wavelength services on what has become an increasingly important route.
And Ciena also got some love over in the Far East on Colt's IQ Network. Colt has completed a test of 600G technology on a live longhaul network in Japan between two colt data centers. The trials also leveraged solutions from VIAVI and demonstrated Colt's readiness to offer ultra-high bandwidth solutions in the region.
