February 23rd, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Four other interesting items of note at midweek:

Salute Mission Critical has a new financial backer. LLR Partners has invested in the data center support operations specialist. Salute provides a pathway for veterans into the infrastructure space, taking advantage of the skills and experience learned in one mission critical environment and applying them in another. We had Salute’s Kristen Vossmaer here for a spotlight a little over a year ago.

BandwidthIG has completed a unique fiber route out in California. Their underground fiber new reaches into South San Jose, stretching from the Great Oaks area back to Santa Clara. The company has added another 40km of fiber, adding to the depth of its data center connectivity in the area. They plan to have 165 route miles by the end of 2022.

Infinera has launched the latest version of its ICE6 technology, named ICE6 Turbo. Operating above 100Gbaud, the new technology promises to provide a 30% performance boost for some applications, supporting 4x400GbE services using a single optical engine. It also supports 3x400GbE services in ultra longhaul cases. ICE6 Turbo will be available in Q4 of this year, with both C-band and L-band variants.

And Verizon has teamed up with Bloomberg Media for content at the edge. With the help of AWS Wavelength and Zixi’s SDVP and Zen Master control plane, the trial demonstrated live streaming 4K UHD video content directly to consumer 5G devices. The plan to follow it up with near real-time native translation for captioning and subtitles.
