Thursday Bytes: Infinera, Nokia, DataBank, Accelecom

October 19th, 2023 by · 2 Comments

A couple of international technology upgrades and a couple of regional infrastructure projects:

Infinera has picked up a bit of business over in eastern Europe for its ICE6 technology. Poland’s Hawe Telekom will be deploying an 800G coherent solution on its route from Frankfurt through Warsaw to Vilnius, enabling them to deliver nx100G services for customers within 48 hours. Hawe’s network footprint include multiple rings within Poland as well as connectivity west to Amsterdam, north to Stockholm, and east to Moscow.

Nokia has won two international technology deployments of interest. In Pakistan, Cybernet is using Nokia’s optical technology to deploy 600G DWDM between its main metro sites. In combination with a deployment of 7750 SR and 7250 IXR routers for its IXP platform and new nodes in Marseille, Oman, Singapore, and the UAE the upgrade will enable significantly expanded capacity both within Pakistan and beyond.  Meanwhile, Nokia’s PON technology is getting a workout in Iceland. Mila will be using XGS-PON to deploy 10G broadband to the island nation’s citizens, with an upgrade path to 25G.

DataBank is putting some resources to work at its Granite Point campus in Utah. They are expanding their SL6 data center on the ‘silicon slopes’ in Bluffdale. The upgrade will add another 25,000 square feet of raised floor space and 6MW of power. SL6 just opened this year, starting with 90,000 square feet of space and 22MW of power.

And Accelecom has won some municipal business in Kentucky. The City of Cynthiana has tapped the fiber operator to assist in its digital transformation. Accelecom has deployed a ‘high bandwidth network solution’ in support of Cynthiana’s public safety infrastructure as well as IoT capabilities and other economic development projects.
