Thursday Roundup: Nokia, BT, NJFX, Gold Connect, Bluebird, TBI, Console Connect, Cologix

June 30th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Teamwork everywhere, with four bits of news of companies working together to put the pieces together:

Nokia and BT are working together on next-generation IP networking, expanding on the companies’ longstanding collaboration. BT will be testing Nokia’s new FP5 silicon. Nokia’s FP5 offers 800G routing interfaces, embedded line-rate, flow-based encryption, and a 75% power consumption reduction. BT already uses Nokia’s IP routing technology to power its backbone.

NJFX has a new connectivity option available within the ecosystem at its cable landing station colo campus in Wall NJ. GoldConnect has launched a new strategic PoP at the facility, with which it will expand its LatamConnect platform. GoldConnect has a presence in 17 countries in Latin America, and is now leveraging the Seabras-1 cable system as part of that infrastructure.

Bluebird has a new channel option for its 10,600-route-mile Midwestern fiber network. TBI has added Bluebird Network to its supplier portfolio, enabling agents to more easily leverage those assets. Bluebird has been steadily increasing its depth and breadth since Macquarie moved in a few years ago.

And PCCW’s Console Connect has a new PoP up in Canada. They have expanded their partnership with Cologix with a new location at the latter’s TOR1 data center in Toronto, complementing the one they put into Montreal’s MTL7 six months ago. Console Connect’s portal enables easy on-demand connectivity to major cloud destinations.
