Tuesday Roundup: Sparkle, Lumen, Nokia, Kao Data

November 28th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

More news from around the world to catch up with:

Sparkle has signed an agreement with Telespazio, a joint venture specializing in satellite service located in the Scanzano Space Centre. The facility, which is about 47km from Palermo, houses data from LEO, MEO, and geostationary orbi constellations. Sparkle’s fiber will connect that facility to Sparkle’s Palermo hub, which will give them better access to global IP destinations via things like Sparkle’s new BlueMed cable.

Lumen says its security services helped keep the World Series safe earlier this month. Lumen’s DDOS was in place to protect critical infrastructure, including the stadium Wi-Fi enabling a better fan experience at Globe Life Field in Arlington TX. The Texas Rangers’ network traffic was scrubbed via Lumen’s DDoS Hyper technology.

After a successful pilot project, Nokia is aiding Safaricom Kenya with some power saving technology. They have deployed AVA Energy Efficiency software to help cut network energy costs by some 8-10% for Safaricom Kenya’s wireless footprint. The technology uses AI and machine learning to shut down idles and unused equipment during low usage periods while keeping everything running properly.

And Kao Data has officially opened the doors of phase 2 of its Harlow campus buildout. The new data center, KLON-02, adds 3,400 square meters of space and 10MW of capacity powered by renewable sources. The facility is also NVIDIA DGX-ready. It’s their second facility on the campus, with the first having opened back in 2018 and two more buildings planned.
