A few interesting news items before weeks’ end:

Windstream Enterprise has added another dimension to its managed services portfolio. They are now offering Fortinet-based LAN services, enabling them to offer better network integration options to customers across multiple verticals. It’s part of Windstream’s ongoing portfolio expansion in the enterprise space, which is using more than a little Fortinet technology.

Empire Access has found a couple new markets to expand its FTTH reach into. They will be deploying network in Endicott and Endwell, two towns along the Susquehanna River west of Binghamton. Empire Access has been adding new markets across upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania over the last year or two.

Ribbon has won some business across Texas for its IP optical gear. Texas Lone Star Network will be using their Apollo platform to provide an alien wavelengths overlay on their ROADM transport network. Initially that will be at 200G, with support for 400G down the road. TLSN is a consortium of 41 rural service providers.

And EdgeConneX now has some additional cloud interconnection options in three markets. Megaport has expanded its SDN platform into additional EdgeConneX facilities in Atlanta, Detroit, and Miami. It’s an expansion of an existing relationship, which now puts Megaport in nine of EdgeConneX’s locations.
