May 26th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

A new data center, some edge computing for blockchain, a network upgrade project, and an acquisition:

NTT has opened its first data center in Spain. The 6.3MW, 3600sqm facility is located at the company’s Európolis Business and Technology Park site 20km northwest of Madrid. NTT designed the facility for Spain’s climate with energy efficiency and conservation in mind. The first major (unnamed) client installation is powered by renewable energy.

Lumen is helping power the expansion of Flux. The decentralized cloud infrastructure operator is leveraging enterprise-grade servers via Lumen’s edge computing platform. Flux is looking to launch many new staking nodes in a widely distributed architecture for its view of supporting the blockchain ecosystem and Web 3.0 more broadly.

Algeria Telecom has tapped NEC and Juniper Networks for a network upgrade. The two have helped the service provider roll out a national IP metro network, increasing capacity and preparing for 5G and FTTx. The solution leveraged NEC’s network integration and engineering as well as various elements of Juniper’s network automation technology and Junos OS platform.

And down in Australia, Superloop has made an inorganic move. The service provider has announced plans to acquire the white label and tech consultancy firm Acurus. The deal puts to work some of the capital Superloop raised in a sale of select assets in Singapore and Hong Kong. The purchase will cost AU$15M, AU$12M of which came from the company’s cash reserves with the balance in stock.
