Four bits of infrastructure teamwork to catch up on before heading home for the long weekend (at least here in the US).

Crosslake Fibre's European efforts will be taking advantage of Interxion's infrastructure. The undersea netwrk bulder and operator has selected Interxion's Paris Campus as the landing and interconnection point for the CrossChannel Fibre System. Crosslake's project will be the first fiber build across the English Channel since the dotcom bubble era, and is expected to go live by the end of this year with 96 fiber pairs each capable of providing 20Tbps or so.

RETN is also putting some resources to work in the Paris metro area. They have completed a third PoP in and around the French capital, more specifically at Equinix's PA2 facility at 111 Rue Ambroise Croizat in Saint Denis. RETN will provide both layer 2 and layer 3 services for French customers, with connectivity on to other regional destiniations such as Marseille, Madrid, Frankfurt, and Brussels.

LastMileXchange and IENTC are teaming up to better address the market for bandwidth to and from Mexico. IENTC will be leveraging LMX's Supplier Tool, which will provide circuit pricing to the global carrier community via an AI that is compatible with the major carriers' systems. IENTC operates some 5000km of fiber infrastructure centered on the Bajío region of Mexico.

And Zayo has picked up some business in the real estate vertical. Legacy Investing has tapped Zayo for interconnection up in Minneapolis with some help from T5 Data Centers. That will bring Zayo into T5@Minneapolis, a purpose-built facility downtown with 3.9MW of available capacity and access to 74 network providers. Minneapolis has long been one of Zayo's deepest fiber markets.
