January 28th, 2022 by · 3 Comments

A new fiber operator, a bit of vendor M&A, a partnership, and a vendor win:

A familiar face has resurfaced with a brand new fiber company. Tahoe Network Infrastructure will be taking aim at the E-Rate and related opportunities in rural and underserved communities, starting out in the Midwest. The company will be led by Greg Green, who formerly led FatBeam’s efforts in the Pacfic Northwest and Rockies. 

The Japanese giant NEC has made an inorganic move today. They have agreed to acquire US-based Blue Danube Systems, which focuses on CBRS/4G/5G RAN and AI/ML-based solutions. The deal gives NEC more depth in both its 5G product portfolio and US-based customer support capabilities, especially when it comes to Open RAN. The deal is expected to close sometime in March of this year

CloudSmartz and LastMileXchange have teamed up in a strategic partnership. The two have put out a joint solution aimed at real time carrier pricing and acceleration of the sales cycle. It leverages LMX’s cloud-native pricing platform and CloudSmartz’s Acumen360 digital marketplace and customer experience automation technology.

ADVA has picked up some business over in western Europe. Terralpha is deploying the company’s 600Gbps technology between cities across France. Terralpha is a new division of the SNCF railway group, and will be leveraging its parent’s spare fiber capacity. They have about 20,000km of fiber along their railways, and will leverage ADVA’s gear to offer a low latency and diverse option.
