A new hire, two product launches, and an upgrade:

euNetworks continues to add muscle to its management team. The pan-European bandwidth infrastructure company has appointed Katherine Alexakis as its CFO, effective September 6. The move follows the recent hiring of Paula Cogan as President earlier this summer, and allows longtime CEO Brady Rafuse to renew his focus on scaling the business.

Epsilon has added an SD-WAN edge option to its portfolio. The Singapore-based global connectivity provider is teaming up with Aruba to combine the Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform with its own Infiny NaaS infrastructure. That will enable them to offer a unified SD-WAN to enterprises that wish to modernize their networks.

TPG Telecom is tapping Infinera to upgrade its PPC-1 submarine cable. PPC-1 connects Australia with Guam, where it interconnects with other Pacific cables. TPG will be deploying Infinera’s ICE6 800G solution on the 7000km, 2-fiber-pair system. The move will boost the total available capacity on PPC-1 by 50%, i.e. from the current 8Tbps up to 12Tbps.

And Windstream Enterprise has launched a new IP-based voice solution for critical services. They are now offering Digital Voice Lines with Cellular Failover, offering to replace POTS services for things like fire and security alarms, POS terminals, smart meters, and other sensors. It also interoperates well with Windsteam’s SD-WAN offerings, creating a comprehensive upgrade path for critical enterprise functions that still leverage older technologies.
