December 23rd, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Happy Holidays to all, time to escape early if you haven’t already folks!  Here’s some quick catchup first of a few items beforehand:

Prime Data Centers has landed a significant pre-lease out in the Los Angeles market. An unnamed ‘publicly traded’ ‘global tech giant’ has tapped them for 12MW of capacity at LAX-01 for delivery in Q4 of 2023. That’s more than a third of the planned buildout, which was just announced this past June.

GCI says it has completed a goal to turn up services in Unalaska, Alaska. It’s a fishing town in the middle of the Aleutian islands archipelago, and GCI has turned up its first residential FTTH customers. Backed by some federal dollars from the Rural Utilities Service ReConnect program, they will turn up service across the island by mid-January and will then move on to Akutan, Sand Point, King Cove, Chignik Bay, and Larsen Bay over the next couple of years.

Ribbon has been busy in the Asian subcontinent. Bharti Airtel is using their technology to enable their 5G deployments across India. The buildout leverages Ribbon’s cell-site router solution, Muse domain orchestration platform, and other services to expand Bharti Airtel’s IP transport backhaul network.

And Nokia Bell Labs has teamed up with e& (formerly Etisalat) to demonstrate 100Gbps PON. The proof of concept puts a 100G connection on a single PON wavelength, 4x the 25Gbps that is in the market so far. The trial took place in the UAE over the infrastructure of ‘etisalat by e&’, which is the UAE arm of the international group.
