Int’l Bytes: AMS-IX, Padtec, Colt, Juniper, BT

August 11th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Five interesting items from four continents to keep pace with:

AMS-IX and irix have plans for an Internet Exchange in Malaysia. The new IX will leverage AMS-IX’s IXaaS platform and will be located on the island of Borneo in Kuching, Sarawak rather than on the Malay Peninsula near Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. irix is the recently launched corporate brand identity of PP Telcom.

Padtec will be helping AdylNet with a network upgrade down in South America. They will be supplying 800Gbps transponders to the Brazilian provider, which operates a network down in the Rio Grande do Sul at the southernmost tip of the country. The infrastructure connects the São Paulo, Curitiba, Florianópolis and Porto Alegre along with locations in the interior of the province.

Colt has optimized its routes between Singapore and Sydney. The upgrade brings their ULL network between the two hubs down to below 87ms RTT latency, something that they hope will play well with the high frequency trading community. Colt has been upgrading its ultra low latency routes throughout the region over the past couple years.

Juniper Networks has won over Jazz. The Pakistan-based 4G operator has picked Juniper to build a fully automated data center that will power its services delivery platform. The data center will leverage Juniper router and switches as well as its automation software, building upon the two companies’ existing relationship.

And over in the UK, BT has won a networking contract with Sellafield Ltd. The £32M deal will support all Selafield locations, including its nuclear site in northwest England, and will cover WAN, LAN, gateway, telephony, cybersecurity, and conferencing. Sellafield will also be looking at IoT and 5G for the future. The Sellafield nuclear site doesn’t generate power anymore, but does handle nuclear waste processing and decommissioning.
