June 5th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

Five interesting infrastructure projects in four different parts of the world at midweek:

Ciena has picked up a customer in south Asia. Constl, which is part of Space World Group, is deploying Ciena’s optical gear for both metro and longhaul across its pan-India network. Constl was just launched last year as a neutral connectivity provider and is rolling out new fiber infrastructure in and between major metros across the country. Ciena’s gear will give them 800G from the get-go with a path to 1.6Tbps.

EXA Infrastructure has a new landing station in the works on the coast of Italy. They are expanding their existing facility in Genoa to include a fully open CLS in anticipation of new subsea cable activity. EXA will also be building a new metro fiber ring in the city that will give the new CLS direct access to five transmission routes to other parts of Europe.

Liquid Intelligent Technologies has a new partner in northwestern Africa. They are working with MEDI TELECOM in Morocco, which is part of the Orange Group. Liquid will be the company’s single supplier for international connectivity, bringing its pan-African footprint to bear, while MEDI’s local knowledge and presence will give Liquid depth within Morocco itself.

Motorola Solutions is looking to tap into the talent pool in southeast Asia.  They have unveiled plans for a new R&D center in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.  Researchers at the facility will focus on public safety projects, leveraging AI to help collect and process sensor data to improve emergency response capabilities.  The team in Vietnam will join similar efforts in Penang, Bangalore and Kolkata.

And Avelacom has added more low latency options within east Asia. They have completed two new routes into Korea, connecting Seoul with Hong Kong and with Singapore, complementing a recently launched link to Tokyo. The routes terminate at the KINX Gasan data center with direct access to the AWS Northeast region. Avelacom specializes in low latency connectivity for financial customers, and the new routes will enable them to serve more of the Korean marketplace, including the country’s cloud-based crypto exchanges.
