January 12th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

One M&A and three organic expansion projects, each from a different infrastructure domain:

WANRack has made an inorganic move out in the Midwest. They have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire KwiKom Communications. KwiKom serves residential and business customers in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. The deal is expected to be completed later this quarter, after which the two will continue to operate under their current brands.

Arelion has expanded into a new market over in the eastern hemisphere. They have built out a PoP in Osaka, Japan, taking up residence in Equinix’s facility there. Arelion is looking to meet regional demand for its core data services in Japan and the surrounding region.

Vantage Data Centers is taking on London. The hyperscale data center provider said this week that it is building a new 48MW campus for some £500. The campus is built on 5 acres or so in the PowerGate neighborhood of North Acton in the northwest part of London. They envision two multistory facilities, with the first to be ready in late 2024.

And the Asia Direct Cable is one step closer to reality. China Telecom Global and SUNeVision Holdings jointly announced today that the cable system has landed in Hong Kong at SUNeVision’s HKIS-1 facility at Chung Hom Kok. ADC will stretch from japan to Singapore, connecting China, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand along the way.
