Thursday Roundup: GTT, BICS, Consolidated, Dobson, Fujitsu

February 23rd, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Two contract wins, one federal grant, some FTTH, and another terabit optical launch:

GTT has won a bit of business from the blockchain provider Eluvio. Eluvio has tapped them for dedicated internet access in support of its utility blockchain content network, expanding on an existing relationship. That distributed blockchain network enables owner-controlled storage, distribution, and monetization of digital content, including streaming high definition 4K video.

BICS and Everbridge have teamed up to support global critical event communications. The partnership enhances Everbridge’s mass notification system around the world, which aim to keep people informed when bad things that might affect them are happening. BICS’s infrastructure enables Everbridge to expand its reach into additional parts of the world.

Consolidated Communications has won $40M in ARPA funding for FTTH in New Hampshire. The funds will support Fidium fiber to 25K homes, which alongside Consolidated’s own capital investments will enable connectivity for 57K homes across 37 towns in six counties. Given that NH has only 10 counties, that covers quite a bit of territory.

Dobson Fiber has completed another FTTx expansion out in Oklahoma. The expansion brings high-speed connectivity to Marlow, a town of some 4500 people between Oklahoma City and Dallas. Dobson just broke ground on the project last summer, and completing the project gives them residential service in 9 Oklahoma towns so far.

And Fujitsu has launched a new optical transport platform. Their 1Finity Ultra technology supports 1.2Tbps with a path to 1.6Tbps and will be launched initially in Japan, North America, and Europe in the first half of 2023. It leverages a DSP, liquid cooling, and the latest semiconductor processes as well as Fujitsu’s C+L ROADM architecture. Along with more bandwidth, they claim a 60% CO2 emmission reduction.
