A data center buildout, a new DCI service, a certification, and a testing collaboration:

AirTrunk has already broken ground on phase 2 of its TOK2 data center in West Tokyo, Japan. When complete, the expansion will add some 50MW of potential capacity to the site, which they just started working on three months ago. Combined with their East Tokyo infrastructure, it will give them 410MW of total capacity in the Tokyo metro area. Last month AirTrunk kicked off a 150+MW hyperscale location in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, so they’ve got a lot going on.

AMS-IX has launched a new data center interconnect service. The new DCI service enables their interconnection customers to connect from one AMS-IX location to another. It’s a natural extension of AMS-IX’s interconnection platform, and has been rolled out 16 data centers within AMS-IX’s home turf of Amsterdam and the nearby metros of Rotterdam and Naaldwijk.

MainOne says it has achieved Tier II Constructed Facility certification for MDXi Appolonia. Along with existing PCI-DSS, ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certifications, the one-year-old facility is well placed in the markets of West Africa. MainOne is a subsidiary of Equinix, and MDXi Appolonia is located in Accra, Ghana.

And Spirent has teamed up with Anritsu for O-RAN testing. The two are collaborating on a combined set of test solutions for the growing O-RAN ecosystem, enabling accelerated adoption. Spirent’s technology offers emulation of nodes and interfaces to communicated with network elements, while Anritsu’s provides for RF verification and conformance testing.
