Monday Roundup: FiberLight, MDC, Comcast Business, PacketFabric, Windstream

April 3rd, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Several interesting items from late last week that are worth keeping up with:

FiberLight and McAllen Data Centers are each further investing in their infrastructure on the southern border. FiberLight will be building fiber into MDC’s new facility at 500 Bliss Street in Eagle Pass TX, adding another key node to their Texas depth. MDC’s new facility will serve cross-border needs, sitting on a key path between Dallas and the growing data center market of Querétaro.

Comcast Business is expanding its SD-WAN portfolio with two new offerings for the SMB. They are tailoring their technology to businesses with standalone locations and limited IT resources who need to securely leverage SaaS applications and other cloud services. Menawhile Comcast Business also revealed an interesting connectivity win in Philadelphia. They are providing the infrastructure to connect the Arlen Specter US Squash Center in University City, which is home to UPenn and Drexel.

The merger of PacketFabric and Unitas Global is officially complete. The previously announced deal combines the two companies’ Network-as-a-Service portfolio under the PacketFabric brand. Backed by Digital Alpha Advisors, they now have an integration task ahead of them of course.

And Windstream says it has completed the removal of all Huawei equipment from its network. They had inherited some Huawei gear in their purchase of EarthLink back in 2017. Following the FCC’s designation of the vendor as a national security threat, service providers have been moving to eliminate their exposure.
