September 28th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Two data center expansions, a subsea upgrade, and a couple new PoPs:

CoreSite is a bit bigger now down in Florida. The subsidiary of American Tower has acquired a 103,000 square foot facility at 2100 NW 84th Ave in Doral, Florida, which lies just west of Miami International Airport. CoreSite will be integrating the facility, which will be called MI2, with its existing MI1 facility in downtown Miami.

Vantage Data Centers has expanded its Cyberjaya campus in the southeast Asian country of Malaysia. They have completed the delivery of KUL12 in Kuala Lumpur, and are now constructing KUL13 nearby. KUL12 is four stories high, and gives Vantage a total of 10MW and 190,000 square feet of space on the campus so far, and the third facility will add another 5MW when it comes online in the first half of 2023.

C&W has tapped Ciena for some subsea upgrades in the Caribbean. They are leveraging Ciena’s GeoMesh Extreme on both the CFX-1 and EWC cable systems. CFX-1 spans 2400km between the US and Colombia via Jamaica, and EWC spans 1700km between Jamaica and the British Virgin Islands, via the Dominican Republic. Both cables will now be able to offer up to 400Gbps links with as much as 10x the total prior capacity.

And over in Europe, the Dutch-based provider GlobalNet/DATAIX has added some new nodes in Germany and Denmark. The new PoPs are in Hamburg and Copenhagen, enabling GlobalNet to serve the markets between the key nodes of Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt. DATAIX has roots in Russia and eastern Europe, with some 48 PoPs in western and northern Europe as well as Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan.
