Wednesday Bytes: Everstream, H5, Infinera, Nokia

June 2nd, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Another deal completion, an expansion, and two vendor wins:

Everstream has completed its deal with Uniti. They have purchased longhaul and metro fiber assets and customers in Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and northern Delaware. The deal, which was announced back in November, brings Everstream into Philadelphia and Pittsburgh as well as another 10 smaller cities, and gives them connectivity to 52 additional data centers. It's a logical expansion by Everstream to territory adjacent to its footprint in Ohio.

H5 Data Centers has moved into the Big Apple. The national colo provider has expanded into 325 Hudson with the help of the investment firm DivcoWest. New York City is H5's 14th US market, and complements their other eastern US facilities in Ashburn, Atlanta, and Cleveland. At 325 Hudson they will leverage the existing interconnection capabilities, which include NetIX and DE-CIX connectivity.

UFINET has tapped Infinera for an 800G network upgrade down in Colombia. UFINET will be installing Infinera's ICE6 800G coherent technology on its national longhaul network in the country. The Latin American operator has some 75,000km of network across 17 countries, and this deployment will double their network capacity in Colombia.

And Nokia has been selected for some network gear and services in the Netherlands. Delta Fiber, which is owned by EQT, plans to have 1M homes and businesses connected by the end of this year, and Nokia is enabling that goal with XGS.PON equipment, WiFi mesh technology, and its Altiplano Access Controller. The solution is for 10Gbps today, but will support 25Gbps when the market is ready for it.
