Monday Bytes: Hurricane Electric, Vantage, Nokia

December 6th, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Three interesting items from three continents to note as we start the week:

Hurricane Electric has added yet another node to its global IPv6-native backbone. The network operator has deployed a new PoP in Australia at NextDC’s M1 Melbourne Data Center. It’s their third PoP with NEXTDC, from which they will offer cloud connectivity as well as IP transit and interconnectivity.

Vantage Data Centers’ efforts to move into southeast Asia have taken on their full form. Over the weekend Vantage finalized the purchase of PCCW’s data center business, giving them 100MW of existing and expansion capacity across Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. PCCW’s Brian Groen will shift over to Vantage as president of Vantage’s Asia-Pacific business, while Giles Proctor has been named COO of the same entity. The deal was announced in September alongside the purchase of Agile Data Centers.

And Nokia has deployed a private 5G network for Volkswagen as a pilot project. The German auto giant is trying out the infrastructure at its main plant in Wolfburg, Germany to see if it enables them to improve efficiency and flexibility. Nokia’s solution leverages the company’s Digital Automation Cloud and operates in the 3.7-3.8GHz band.
