One M&A, one upgrade, one fiber services launch, and one private wireless deployment:
Louisiana State University has tapped Infinera for an upgrade of the Louisiana Optica Network Infrastructure, or LONI. They will be deploying both Infinera’s XTM and GX Series technology to better connect the 28 universities statewide that participate in the research and education network. The upgrade gives them scalability up to 800G and enables an immediate initial deployment of 4x400G optical channels along a 220-mile intrastate route.
Nextivity has made an inorganic move to better take on the first responder sector. They have acquired Assured Wireless Corporation, a specialist with HPUE technology that adds a new dimension to the company’s portfolio. NExtivity will also be rebranding its public safety product line as the SHIELD family.
Comcast Business is teaming up with Celona Inc in northern California. The two will be providing the Sonoma County Fairgrounds with an advanced private wireless network solution. The effort targets both the public fair experience and the back-of-office operations needed to run such a venue and the events it supports. Celona’s 5G LAN technology and Comcast’s CBRS spectrum licenses both played key roles.
And Wyyerd Fiber is taking aim at southern California. Just a couple weeks after announcing new initiatives in Phoenix AZ, the upstart FTTP provider has officially launched services in Chula Vista and National City CA, both suburbs of San Diego. They’ll be offering fiber connectivity to residences, busiensses, non-profits, and others in both communities.
