Regional Bytes: Comcast Business, Calix, DZS, American Tower, Flexential

June 25th, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Four regional projects on two continents worth making note of:

Comcast Business has picked up some business in the hospitality sector. They will be providing its X1 Hospitality services as well as a 2G EDI connection and 500Mbps EDI circuit to Rally Hotel out in the LoDo neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. Rally Hotel, which has some 182 rooms and 21,000 square foot of outdoor spaces, recently opened for business in lower downtown.

Calix has picked up some RDOF business out in Arkansas. Petit Jean Fiber, which was recently awarded the third largest RDOF grant, has selected Calix's gear and cloud-based services to deploy its promised FTTH network. Petit Jean is an energy cooperative that serves a swath of Arkansas about an hour north of Little Rock around the cities of Clinton and Marshall.

DZS says that its FTTH gear will be getting a workout in southern Germany. Long-time customer NetCom BW will be leveraging DZS's solution in the German states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. NetCom BW is a subsidiary of the energy utility EnBW and specializes in subsidized municipal fiber optic communications, connecting up rural areas with big bandwidth. They operate some 16,600km of fiber in Germany.

And American Tower has a new data center partner down in Georgia. The company's facility at 55 Marietta in downtown Atlanta, which we used to call Colo Atl of course, has hooked up to Flexential's FlexAnywhere interconnection solution. The deal enables American Tower's Metro Data Center tenants to connect up to 250+ other infrastructure destinations, including networks, data centers, managed services, and of course the cloud.
