Several network expansions and upgrades worth keeping up with, one in the US, and the others over in APAC.
Crosslake Fibre has added some new on-ramps in New York City. They have built out connectivity to two iconic data centers in Manhattan: 60 Hudson Street and 111 8th Avenue. The expansion broadens Crosslake's customer reach for its low latency connectivity between Toronto and the NY/NJ metro area, moving directly into the Big Apple for the first time.
Epsilon has picked up some business in southeast Asia. SpaceDC has selected Epsilon's Infiny network-as-a-service platform to deliver network services. SpaceDC operates two data centers on its ID01 campus in Jakarta, Indonesia with Ethernet connectivity to both Singapore and Hong Kong. Epsilon's technology will enable them to offer direct cloud connectivity to their tenants.
Also in Indonesia, Indosat Ooredoo has tapped Cisco for a deployment of Segment Routing over IPv6. The service provider is upgrading its transport infrastructure with support for greater programmability and things like network slicing. The move is part of Indosat Ooredoo's preparation for demand from the region's enterprise markets for nextgen technologies like 5G, cloud computing, and IoT.
Bharti Airtel has tapped Ciena for some big metro bandwidth over in the major markets of India. They are rolling out Ciena's latest technology to bring 600G and 800G wavelengths to bear in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Kolkata. The upgrade leverages C&L-band infrastructure with a layer 0 control plane, coherent optics, and an MCP domain controller and other software. Airtel will use the capabilities to support its 5G rollout plans.
