I’ve been on the road for the weekend, so here’s some quick catchup of some news from the end of last week before we get started on the new one:
Epsilon has won a convert to its SD-WAN technology. Hong Kong-based Belton Technology Group has selected the company to re-architect its wide-area network, upgrading from MPLS. Belton is a turnkey contract manufacturer with locations in China, Hong Kong, Thailand, and the Philippines, and needs the upgraded network connecticivity to keep up with customer demand.
Windstream and Infinera are teaming up for the next generation of Windstream’s network infrastructure. The two announced plans to collaborate on an upgrade based on Infinera’s Node-on-a-Blade technology, which Infinera has positioned as the next evolution of ROADM. Windstream will incorporate the technology into its ICON vision, possibly introducing a new class of hyperscale optimized network services.
Flexential is expanding its capabilities out in Colorado. The data center operator says it is boosting its power capacity at its Englewood data center to 11.25MW by the end of 2022, with the first phase available this spring. Flexential operates 490,000 square feet of space across 4 facilities in the Denver metro area.
And Ziply Fiber has been busy up in the Pacific Northwest and Canada. They have lit connectivity into three of Cologix’s facilities up in Vancouver, extending the company’s core network northward. The route leverages dual redundant land-based routes avoiding bridges and other known ‘pinch points’, offering diverse capacity to tenants of Cologix’s VAN1, VAN2, and VAN3 facilities. Ziply acquired Frontier’s assets in the northwest in May 2020.
