A couple infrastructure expansions and a couple technology partnerships to start the week:
Comcast Business has extended its reach in the southwestern US. They have deployed a new PoP at H5 Data Centers’ facility at 505 Marquette in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It’s an expansion of a broader relationship that has brought Comcast into H5 facilities in 10 markets nationally. Comcast Business will leverage the new PoP to serve busienss and enterprise customers with a broad portfolio of connectivity and managed services.
Africa Data Centres has plans to enter a new data center market deep in central Africa. The 2MW facility will be in Kigali, Rwanda, and it will target growing demand in the region. From Kigali they will leverage fiber connections back through Uganda to Kenya, connecting to their Nairobi data center and on to the eastern coast of Africa.
Syntropy and Zenlayer are teaming up for low latency network connectivity. The partnership will enable Zenlayer to tokenize excess bandwidth and offer it via Syntropy’s blockchain-based Open Bandwidth Exchange. Meanwhile, Syntropy and its users will be able to leverage Zenlayer’s edge infrastructure across a range of emerging markets worldwide. We had both Zenlayer and Syntropy here for Q&As relatively recently.
And Tata Communications is expanding its relationship with the UAE-based systems integrator Intertec Systems. The two are setting up a cyber security operations center in the UAE. Tata’s cybersecurity solutions will be combined with Intertec’s local knowledge in support of enterprises in the region.
