A new PoP, a bunch of vendor wins, and a new data center down under:

Hurricane Electric has deployed a new PoP out in the Midwest. They have built out a node in Davenport, Iowa at South Front Networks' facility at 2814 North Clark. It's HE's first PoP in Iowa, giving them more direct access to potential customers in what is known as the Quad Cities area along the Mississippi River. SFN operates a regional fiber network connecting Davenport with Rochester MN and points in between.

ADTRAN has picked up three customer wins for its last mile technology. The Alabama-based cable MSO Armstrong is taking their XGS-PON fiber aces platform to residential and commercial markets in Kentucky, Maryland, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Armstrong has been evolving its infrastructure by overlaying XGS-PON capable of up to 10Gbps symmetrical in the future. Centre WISP is leveraging ADTRAN's services to build out and RDOF-derived FTTH network in central Pennsylvania. And New Lisbon is deploying ADTRAN's PON technology in both its NLBC footprint in Indiana and its recently acquired PTC footprint in Pennsylvania. We had NLBC's CEO here for a two part interview back in May.

Ciena has picked up a couple of wins this week. WIN Technology will be using their Adaptive IP solution to modernize it's IP network . WIN's SMB-focused infrastructure spans 15,000 miles of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and northern ILlinois. Meanwhile, in the northeast Lightpath says it has deployed Ciena's WaveLogic 5 Extreme solution, giving them potential 800Gbps capabilities in the greater NYC area.

Macquarie Data Centers has a new project in mind down in Sydney, Australia. The division of Macquarie Telecom Group will be building out a new data center at its campus in the Sydney North Zone, Intellicentre 3 Super West. IC3 Super West will be seemlessly interconnected with IC3 East, and follows on the heels of their buildout of IC5 in Canberra. The new facility will be ready by the second half of 2023.
