Int’l Bytes: Colt, Ciena, EXA, Claranet, Seaborn, Orchest, Sipartech

Three expanded partnerships and another high speed upgrade from around the world:

Colt has tapped Ciena to power its longhaul ambitions in Japan. Ciena’s 6500 RLS, Waveserver 5, WL5e coherent optics, and MCP domain controller double Colt’s network capacity while enabling 500km high-capacity spans. Recently the two also demonstrated 600G waves on a live longhaul network as well.

EXA Infrastructure picked up a colo customer north of London. Claranet has selected their Hoddeson data center to house core infrastructure, leasing a minimum of 284 square metere of space and 500kW of power. It’s the extension of an existing relationship of course, and EXA has committed to significant upgrades as part of the deal.

Seaborn Networks and Orchest Technologies are deepening their relationship with a strategic alliance. The Latin American network and cloud provider will leverage Seaborn’s subsea and terrestrial connectivity between and within the US, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, and Peru. Seaborn built its own Seabras-1 cable and leverages other systems like AMX-1, Monet, and SAm-1 as well.

And the French provider Sipartech has upgraded its longhaul network to 400G+. They are now offering both 400G+ spectrum and wavelength across the company’s network, which primarily focuses on their three Paris-Marseille routes. They now have 54.6Tbps between the two key markets, with 500G per wave on their two shorter routes and 400G per wave on the longer one.
