Wednesday Bytes: Windstream, Proximity, Avelcom, Veea, Breezeline

January 12th, 2022 by · 1 Comment

A couple edge moves, a couple of deployments, and a rebranding to note at midweek:

Windstream said this week that it turned up 2Tbps of longhaul wave capacity in 5 business days. The recipient was an unnamed communications provider with an immediate need for capacity. Windstream has been investing in its longhaul infrastructure on many levels over the past few years, giving the company a solid and flexible footprint to work with.

Proximity Data Centres has expanded its edge reach over in the UK. They have opened a new edge data center site in the city of Birmingham. With 63,055 square feet of space supporting up to 2,000 racks across three data halls, they have 6MW of IT power, expandable to 12MW, available to potential tenants. Proximity already has edge facilities in other cities such as Bridgend, Swindon, Nottingham, Rugby, Liverpool, Chester Gates, and Wakefield, and expects to have 20 such locations online within a year.

Avelacom has rolled out services for Japan Exchange Group. JPX is made up of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, Tokyo Commodity Exchange, and the Osaka Exchange, and Avelacom is now one of its arrownet-Global Partner Network vendors. The Japanese market is one of Avelacom's hubs within the financial network services arena, and they have been steadily investing in their fiber and data center infrastructure in the region for a number of years.

Veea and CONXAI are teaming up at the edge. They are pairing Veea's edge technology and platform with CONXAI's modular no-code AI platform to better serve the needs of the construction industry. They hope to automate and streamline the monitoring, management, and maintenance of construction sites and assets via low cost sensors, cameras, and the connectivity to collect and analyze data.

And finally, we have a new brand name to remember. Atlantic Broadband, the #8 cable operator in the US, has changed its name and branding to Breezeline. They made the move after acquiring cable systems in Cleveland and Columbus from WOW! last year, taking them deeper inland from the Atlantic coast. Breezeline is owned by the Canadian operator Cogeco, which may have further consolidation plans for the US cable market.
