Tuesday Roundup: LightPath, LightRiver, ConnectBase, EdgeCore

January 31st, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Two infrastructure expansions, and two partnerships to keep up with:

LightPath is building out some new infrastructure on the east side of the East River in New York City. They have teamed up with DataVerge, building into their carrier neutral interconnection facility within Brooklyn’s Industry City campus. DataVerge’s 50K square foot location has an ecosystem of 30 network operators with a wide variety of cloud on-ramps. Brooklyn gets remarkably little infrastructure attention relative to its 2.5M population, something LightPath is looking to take better advantabe of.

LightRiver Technologies has a new partner lined up that will take them deeper into the southern hemisphere. The systems integrator Precision Solutions has tapped into LightRiver’s netFLEX network automation technology. They’ll use it to address the need of enterprises in Brazil and other markets in the region to manage their networks via a technology-agnostic platform and with their first technical support tier in their native language.

ConnectBase also has put a new partnership in place. They have teamed up with fellow cloud SaaS denizen LB Networks, pairing their connectivity data solutions with LB Networks’ OcularIP network assurance technology. The idea is to better enable sellers within ConnectBase’s ecosystem to market their connectivity wares, pairing location-specific information alongside network performance data for companies looking to expand their network reach.

And EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure recently broke ground on a new data center over in the California’s Bay Area. This is the first of two facilities on a new campus in Santa Clara that will eventually support 72MW of critical load and 540,000 square feet of space. The new project follows on the heels of the company’s acquisition by Partners Group two months ago. Partners Group will be investing $1.2B in EdgeCore, enabling some substantial new development projects, of which this is the first.
