A couple of government contracts, a new CDN PoP, and a multinational upgrade to finish off the week:

MetTel has been awarded a high profile federal contract this week. Yesterday they announced a win at the National Archives and Records Administration, for whom they will be providing integrated SD-WAN services. It's an EIS Task Order valued at as much as $65M. NARA supports some 45 locations nationwide, including Federal Records Centers, Regional Archives, Presidential Libraries and Museums, and the Federal Register.

Fujitsu Network Communications has also won some government business this week. The Illinois Department of Innovation & Technology is leveraging Fujitsu's technical services to interconnect education sites around the state via the Illinois Century Network. The solution is powered by Silver Peak's SD-WAN technology. Silver Peak was recently acquired by HP Enterprise's Aruba division. It's a five year deal, with more than 100 locations already turned up.

123Net has a new content delivery network tenant up in Michigan. Limelight Networks has deployed a new point of presence within the company's colocation facilities in Michigan 123Net operates three facilities near Detroit and another out in Grand Rapids, as well as an extensive metro and regional fiber footprint. Limelight's move puts its content closer to end users in Michigan via 123Net's ecosystem in the region.

And Orange Business Services has lined up another multinational enterprise customer. The global 'omni-channel solutions partner' RS Components has picked them to transform its infrastructure, digitize its sales processes, and move its contact centers into the cloud via SD-WAN, UCaaS, and other technologies.
