March 22nd, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Some FTTH, a new data center build, and a backbone upgrade project:

Bluepeak has won a franchise agreement with the city of Norman OK, which is the home of the University of Oklahoma. The company plans to spend some $55M to bring service to 55,000 residences and businesses in the city, which will make it their biggest market. Bluepeak’s footprint also includes markets in the Dakotas, Minnesota, and Wyoming.

H5 Data Centers has some new data center plans in a familiar market. They have broken ground on a new location in Ashburn, Virginia on Beaumeade Circle. When complete, the new location will boast 255,000 square feet and 42MW of critical load. The first phase is expected to be available in Q3 of 2024.

And Ciena has picked up a deal down in New Zealand with Spark. Spark will be deploying a second generation OTN 2.0 backbone between the country’s largest cities, and will be leveraging Ciena’s 6500 optical platform as well as an array of supporting software and analytics capabilities. Spark is the largest ISP in New Zealand as well as the second largest mobile operator.
