Some data center expansion plans plus three contract wins from around the world:
Colt DCS has purchased a range of new properties with plans for a hyperscale expansion. They announced that the company has secured ten new properties in both Europe and APAC, with sites in London, Frankfurt, Paris, and Japan. The move comes after Colt DCS sold off 12 colo sites to AtlasEdge last year, suggesting that they are strategically shifting the type of colo facility they focus on. The company plans to develop 100MW of capacity across its footprint.
Bulk Data Centers has picked up a new Scandinavian multinational customer. AF Gruppen will be putting its future private cloud infrastructure within Bulk's OS-IX facility in Oslo, Norway. The contracting and industrial group works across a range of real estate, construction, civil engineering, environment, energy and offshore projects in Norway, Sweden, Lithuania, and the UK.
Mavenir and BAI Communications are teaming up for some smart city work over in the UK. The two have partnered for a project in Sunderland. BAI will build a new 5G-centric network in the city, leveraging Maviner's edge Open vRAN and 5G packet core solutions. Sunderland lies along the North Sea just to the southeast of Newcastle upon Tyne.
And Nokia has a new client out in the Far East. Beijing-based Capital Online will be using Nokia's routing platforms to upgrade its IP backbone infrastructure. Capital Online offers cloud computing services to the Chinese marketplace, and is looking to implement what it calls its Network 2.0. plan.
