Network Bytes: GTT, Arvig, Equinix, NexGen Networks, Summit

April 21st, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

A customer win, two footprint expansions, and a bit of M&A:

GTT has won an expanded agreement with the European Space Agency. The ESA will now leverage GTT’s Hybrid Cloud, Network, and Security services across 8 locations around Europe. The solution hosts and makes available 8PB of data in support of the agency’s missions as well as some from third parties, including the Earth Observation mission.

Arvig continues to invest in its network infrastructure, and this week said it has extended its reach down to Chicago. They have added some colo space in Equinix CH1 at 350 E. Cermak from which it will serve customers looking to reach into their footprint in Minnesota and surrounding states. Illinois becomes their 5th state, alongside Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, and North Dakota.

NexGen Networks has tapped Equinix to help scale its European footprint. They have moved into the colocation giant’s FR4 and LD8 facilities in Frankfurt and London, respectively. They will use the infrastructure to better address demand from enterprises and especially from the financial services vertical.

And Summit Broadband has made an inorganic move down in Florida. They have acquired NexGen Connected Communities LLC, a specialist in connecting and serving multi-tenant residential and commercial properties. Summit hopes to accelerate its penetration into that type of customer base in markets across Florida.
