Some data center M&A to the south, an organic expansion project to the north, and a wireless data deployment across the sea:
Equinix has made a new inorganic move down in South America. The data center giant has acquired 4 facilities from the Chilean provider Entel. Three are in the Santiago metro are, and the fourth is in Lima, Peru. The four facilities generate $53M in annual revenue and will cost $705M. Some 120 Entel employees will make the shift over to Equinix.
Vantage’s plans for Canada continue to expand. Late last week the hyperscale data center operator announced plans to invest CAD$900 to build out its infrastructure in the province of Quebec. In Montreal they will be building a third data center campus, QC6, and will add a third facility at the company’s QC4 campus. Meanwhile the company has acquired 8 additional acres of land to expand its QC2 campus upon. When all is built out, Vantage says it will have 143MW of IT capacity.
And Cisco has been busy over in the European sports scene. Cisco and Real Madrid have teamed up to deploy Wi-Fi 6 at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, which the high profile European football club calls home. The deployment leverages 1,200 Wi-Fi 6 access points and a suite of other gear to reach 85,000 seats with more bandwidth and higher reliability.
