April 20th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Three network upgrade projects and a new IX.

Lumen has made another upgrade to its network infrastructure. They have deployed 400G IP transit ports on their internet backbone in both the US and Europe. The move follows a rollout of 400G on the transport layer, and positions Lumen’s network for the next stage of growth.

Nokia has won a transport deal over in India. Lightstorm will be deploying their C+L band WDM technology across the company’s network, boosting capacity in the east and north of the country. Lightstorm has been looking to shake things up in the Indian transport markets.

Another IX is available to African networks. AF-CIX was launched yesterday in partnership with DE-CIX, taking up residence in Rack Centre’s facility. The move comes days after AMS-IX and MDXi opened an exchange in the Nigerian capital of Lagos.

And Zayo is continuing its network expansions. Today they announced security enhancements including RPKI filtering and two-factor authentication for BGP. Additionally, they have launched a ‘Wavelength on Demand’ capability, offering provisioning within a day on eight of the busiest routes, with another 5 on tap.
