Wednesday Roundup: Hudson IX, Infinera, NEC, Colt, Ericsson

June 29th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

A rebranding, an upgrade, a new product, and a regulatory hurdle:

New York City now has a new name in colo and interconnection. DataGryd has rebranded itself as Hudson Interxchange, the latest shift since its acquisition by Cordiant for $74M earlier this year. Cordiant plans to invest another $75M in the Hudson IX over the next few years, which will see them expand to four floors within the iconic 60 Hudson Street facility.

Infinera and NEC have teamed up to help Neutral Networks with its US/Mexico modernization project. Infinera’s ICE6 technology will enable up to 800G along the 175-mile connection between Laredo TX and the Mexican city of Monterrey. NEC provided the integration services.

Colt has put together a new SASE solution. The new Colt SASE Gateway solution is based on Versa technology, building upon the SD WAN and remote access capabilities they already had in lace. Colt will take the new solution to the enterprise marketplace across its footprint at a time when SASE is definitely gaining momentum.

And Ericsson’s planned purchase of Vonage is getting some deeper regulatory scrutiny. The CFIUS is taking a closer look at the deal, something that will at least delay things for the Swedish giant. Ericsson has gotten itself into trouble with the way it operates in other parts of the world, and some observers expect the CFIUS to at least force some changes to the deal.
