June 9th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

A network upgrade, some FTTH expansions, an NNI, and a new data center:

MOX Networks is taking the plunge into 400G. The fiber operator has deployed 400G tech on its longhaul routes in the US and Japan. MOX has been busy building out more of its own fiber in teh Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, but on a parallel path has put together a national lit footprint. Deploying 400G capabilities enables the company to serve the kind of medical hyperscale needs the company has been built around.

Breezeline is taking its FTTH expansion deeper into West Virginia. They have activated customers in Cheat Lake, with activations expected in Brookhaven and Morgantown later this month. Further projects will take them into Westover, Granville, and Star City by early 2023. Breezeline is a subsidiary of Cogeco, was formerly called Atlantic Broadband, and a few quarters ago bought the Ohio assets of WOW!.

DE-CIX has a new on-ramp for its interconnection platform in the Dallas metro area. They have interconnected with LOGIX Fiber Networks, which connects 3000+ enterprises and 100 data centers throughout Texas. The NNI enables those customers to access DE-CIX Dallas and by extension the IX provider’s other markets in North America and beyond.

And Equinix has revealed plans for a 4th data center in India, and its third in Mumbai. They will be investing $86M to develop MB3, which will sit next door to their MB2 IBX in the Chandivali area of Mumbai’s Commercial district. Plans call for an initial build of 1,375 cabinets when the facility opens in Q2/2024, with three times that at full buildout. Equinix officially entered India when it close a deal to acquire GPX in September of 2021.
