Three interesting items of teamwork to catch up with, both domestic and international:
MOX Networks and QTS have teamed up in the Pacific Northwest. MOX recently completed the build out of a new fiber connecting Hillsboro and Portland, with plans to add connectivity up to Seattle. MOX has moved into QTS Hillsboro DC1, the first facility on QTS's 88 acre, 200MW campus there, offering tenants a new and diverse connectivity option. By working together, MOX and QTS will be able to offer customers the latest fiber and colo infrastructure in the region.
Telxius has completed a network upgrade with some help from both Ciena and Infinera, who we don't often see getting simultaneous attention. The global infrastructure operator is leveraging gear from both providers to support 400G Ethernet services across its footprint. The company says it is the first to do so on both transatlantic and USA/LATAM subsea routes.
And I Squared Capital is wasting no time putting the former GTT infrastructure assets to use. Yesterday HGC, which is also owned by I Squared, announced its intention to 'make full use' of the portfolio of the newly rebranded EXA Infrastructure. They did not, however announced any immediate plans to formally merge the two assets. Instead, HGC will take a two-pronged approach to the sector, at least for now.
