June 14th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Two vendor wins and a new joint venture:

Infinera has won another convert to its ICE6 technology. OTEGLOBE will be using their gear to upgrade its pan-European backbone. The move will double capacity in select parts of its terrestrial footprint in southeastern Europe and enable the offering of 400GbE services. They have also leveraged ICE6 to deliver 16.4T of capacity over two un-repeatered subsea links between Greece and Italy.

Digital Realty has itself a new partner in the Middle East. They are teaming up with Mivne Real Estate to develop data center infrastructure in Israel. The joint venture envisions building a multi-tenant data center campus in Petah Tikvah, which sits about 10km east of Tel Aviv. Plans call for an eventual 20MW of installed IT load and the delivery of the initial phase sometime in 2023.

And Nokia’s XGS-PON technology will be getting a workout down in the US FTTH space. Metronet says it is deploying the next generation gear to deliver 10Gbps services to subscribers, with a path to 25Gbps in the future. Metronet has FTTH assets in 16 states now, and will be rolling out XGS-PON in eight new markets. They are also leveraging Nokia’s ONT Easy Start SaaS platform to simplify provisioning.
