Four bits of metro infrastructure news in four markets around the US that are worth noting:
eX² Technology has completed its public-private partnership infrastructure project down in Atlanta. They have built out duct and fiber transforming 15.8 miles of the Atlanta BeltLine into a smart city corridor. The next steps will be to leverage that infrastructure via wireless solutions along the corridor and to lease excess duct and dark fiber space long the new route.
Comcast Business has a new relationship in the education vertical. They are now an approved vendor for the Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium, enabling member libraries, K-12 institutions, municipalities, non-profits, and colleges to access Comcast's suite of services. Comcast will be able to provide MHEC members with everything from internet access and voice to Ethernet, SD-WAN, and DDoS mitigation.
Mobilitie has picked up some business in the hospitality sector. BEI Hotel, a newly renovated location in downtown San Francisco has tapped the wireless infrastructure specialist to build out a fiber and 5G wireless network for the building. The project will ensure a strong 5G signal for all guests and event venues, and will connect up to Mobilitie's San Francisco fiber backbone.
And Connecticut may be in line for some new data center infrastructure statewide. Apparently Gotspace Data Partners has unveiled plans to build a 32MW facility in Wallingford, which lies on I-91 north of New Haven on the way to Hartford. The company has indicated it will follow up with facilities in Groton, Norwich, Griswold, and Bozrah. They haven't built anything yet of course, but they have agreements in place to use union workers. The town council still has to make its decision on the project yet.
