February 3rd, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Several last mile upgrades an some new funding, both domestic and overseas:

Neterra has boosted its metro network capacity in the Bulgarian capital Sofia. They have deployed PON technology, offering their business customers easier deployments of more bandwidth while maintaining SLAs. Neterra is based in Bulgaria, and its Sofia footprint covers most of the data centers and business centers in and around the city.

Great Plains Communications has also boosted the capacity available to its customers out in the Midwest. They have introduced a 2G symmetrical offering across 9 cities in Nebraska and one across the Missouri river in Iowa. That bandwidth will be offered to both residential and business customers alongside the rest of the company’s offerings.

GNX has lined up some new funds. The Amsterdam-based internet and data provider has secured growth funding from the Dutch investment firm Lexar Partners. They’ll use the additional resources to accelerate the roll-out of their LARA platform for connectivity management.

And in the Middle East stc, the Saudi Telecom Company, has completed a trial of 50G PON. Working with Huawei, they put the nextgen PON technology through its paces successfully. Huawei’s tech can coexist with stc’s currently live 10G PON, enabling an upgrade path for when it’s ready for prime time.
