A few interesting items from around the industry to catch up with at midweek:
Infinera’s gear will be getting a workout in the Canary Islands. Cabildo de Tenerife has deployed Infinera’s XTM Series across its regional government network infrastructure on the island of Tenerife, the largest island in the Spanish province off the northwest coast of Africa. Apfutura Telecom S.L. helped with the upgrade project.
EdgeConneX has raised a bundle of sustainability-linked financings. They have secured $1.7B via the company’s first securitization and multi-currency term loan. EdgeConneX will use the funds to continue to drive the company’s growth at the edge as it moves toward the goal of becoming a carbon-, waste- and water-neutral data center provider by 2030.
DISH and T-Mobile have amended their network services partnership of two years ago. The move will enable DISH 5G customers to access T-Mobile’s 5G footprint in exchange for an annual minimum revenue commitment. There are other financial and operational changes as well. DISH’s 5G network now covers 20% of the US population as they continue to build out infrastructure on a large scale.
Adaptiv Networks is working with Wedge Networks to put together a new SASE solution. The two have signed a partnership agreement that will see Wedge’s real-time protection solution integrated with Adaptiv’s SD-WAN solution. Adaptiv’s cloud-based SASE managed solution will target the needs of small and medium businesses.
And the Medusa cable system now has its landing station in Portugal figured out. They have signed a memorandum of understanding with Altice Portugal’s MEO for a CLS in Carcavelos near Lisbon. MEO will provide the ducts from the beach into the cable landing station as well as the necessary space, power, operations, maintenance, and connectivity on to international connection points. As currently envisioned, MEDUSA will consist of 24 fiber pairs through the Mediterranean, connecting both east to west and north to south.
