A few more interesting bits of news from this week to catch up with:
DE-CIX and EdgeConneX are deepening their relationship. Following deployment of a DE-CIX node in Munich, Germany, the interconnection platform will be coming to three other EdgeConneX locations in Phoenix AZ, Richmond VA, and Barcelona, Spain. EdgeConneX’s infrastructure now spans some 40 facilities on 4 continents while DE-CIX continues to open new IX markets, so there is still room for growth on that front.
Great Plains Communications has completed its MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet certification. Their demonstrated compliance with the industry standard will enable GPC to better address the needs of enterprises and businesses as well as wholesale customers across its 13-state footprint out in the Midwest via Ethernet private line and virtual private line connectivity.
For its part, MEF has been busy on the nextgen automation front with the launch of its LSO Marketplace, a set of resources for accelerating lifecycle service orchestration APIs. They also announced availability of the Celine LSO API Framework as well as new developer guides.
And Inteliquent has boosted its global coverage. They are now able to offer global phone numbers and voice services to 21 countries, including new destinations in EMEA, Asia, and Latin America. They plan to double their coverage by the end of 2022. Inteliquent was acquired by the cloud communications platform company Sinch two months ago.
