Time to catch up on the other stuff going on this week that we didn’t get to after the long weekend:
Dobson Fiber is taking its fiber reach into four new Oklahoma markets. This week they announced an expansion in the towns of Cheyenne, Erick, Taloga, and Vici in the western part of the state. They’ll be able to offer 10G connections to residences, and 100G to the business community.
Abry Partners has acquired NetNumber, and will split it into two pieces: NetNumber Global Data Services and Titanium Software. The former targets real-time routing and phone number data solutions for the enterprise market, while the latter will take its software platform to the telco and government network markets.
Oracle has upgraded its billing solution in a big way. Leveraging a suite of the company’s cloud technologies they say they have achieved a bill run for 10M accounts across 8 service providers in 4.5 hours. Such throughput will help serve the growing 5G IoT marketplace, since all those devices will need keeping track of.
Nokia picked up a couple of interesting optical wins over in Europe this week. They won a deal with the Portuguese provider REN where they will supply DWDM/OTN technology supporting 100G. Meanwhile, Orange will be using their passive optical LAN solution across 20 sites in France. The upgrade will replace an existing copper-based LAN with 5000 endpoints.
Bluebird Network has a new tenant for its Quad Cities data center. Westridge Trading LLC is moving into the facility in search of lower energy costs and improved security for a growing server footprint. Bluebird moved into the Quad Cities colo market with the acquisition of ColoHub at the beginning of last year.
