Wednesday Bytes: EllaLink, BSO, UFD, Digicel, Orange

September 29th, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Two bits of submarine cable news, and one bit of terrestrial dark fiber news:

EllaLink and BSO are teaming up to deliver lower latency between the financial markets in Europe and Latin America. The arrangement will leverage EllaLink’s cable between Brazil and Portugal and BSO’s expertise in serving the financial vertical. The new route enables new trading strategies for European and Asian firms taking aim at the markets of Latin America.

United Fiber & Data has two new tenants on its alternative route between the NY metro area and Ashburn. The Canadian carrier Eastlink and an unnamed ‘global data center and hosting provider’ are leveraging UFD’s dark fiber and regen/ILA sites along the company’s 400 route miles.

And Digicel has a new partner for its Deep Blue One submarine cable project. Orange will be helping out with an extension leg from Trinidad to French Guiana, a destination that doesn’t get much bandwidth love. Deep Blue One will connect markets throughout the Carribean and construction is planned to start in mid 2023 with RFS early in 2024.
