Friday Bytes: Sparkle, Sabey, STACK, Zayo

July 22nd, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Two network operators add in some subsea capacity, and two data center infrastructure operators kick off some major expansion work:

Sparkle has tapped Monet for some additional connectivity between the Americas. The Monet cable connects Boca Raton FL with the Brazilian cities of Fortaleza and Sao Paolo, adding both diversity and additional capacity to their infrastructure. Sparkle’s backbone reaches 56 PoPs in North and South America, and now leverages five diverse routes between the continents.

Sabey Data Centers is taking aim at some significant new infrastructure down in Texas. They have begun construction on a 40-acre campus near Austin TX in the city of Round Rock. Plans call for two buildings with a combined 430,000 square feet of colo space. The first of that will be ready for service in the second quarter of 2023.

STACK Infrastructure is preparing to expand its campus up in Hillsboro OR. They have acquired additional land bringing the site up to a total of 50 acres, doubling the existing footprint. They will use the extra land to expand the campus to some 200MW and put their total capacity in the Portland metro area to over 230MW.

And Zayo says it is leveraging three cables in order to add transpacific capabilities to its network. They have taken up capacity from PC-1, Unity, and TGN-P, each connecting a different node on the west coast of the US with Japan. It’s a latency-optimized design that Zayo will be taking to the financial marketplace via their terrestrial links to Chicago, Dallas, and New York.
