A collection of interesting items from around the sector this week:
Zayo is bringing its IP backbone to bear for Supercomputing 2023 out in Denver this week. They are providing ‘the most advanced temporary network on Earth’ in support of SCinet at the event. That means a whole lot of capacity for what is an annual showcase of next generation technologies, which these days means a lot of AI chatter I’m sure.
EdgeCore is looking to balance its water footprint in Mesa, Arizona. They are contributing to the Salt River Project’s Dude Fire Restoration Project. That effort targets the restoration of a watershed via the clearing of brush and debris to foster the regrowth of native pine forests, enabling the land to better store and use what rainfall they do get in the area.
Also in the Rust Belt, US Signal has introduced a SASE solution. They are leveraging a partnership with Cato Networks through which they have already deployed SD-WAN. The launch will enable US Signal to better serve the needs of enterprises across the region.
And STACK Infrastructure has tapped the financial markets yet again this year. They have issued $290M in securitized notes at a fixed interest rate of 5.9%. The funds will go toward STACK’s ongoing expansion projects both in the US and abroad. It’s their third capital raise of 2023 despite the higher interest rates one has to pay in the current marketplace.
