Int’l Bytes: Ciena, NTT Data, American Tower, Infinera, Telehouse

June 11th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

One vendor win under the ocean, another on land, and a shift in the data center market in Canada:

Ciena says that its GeoMesh Extreme technology will power the upcoming JUNO cable system. JUNO, which is being built by a group led by NTT Data, will connect the US and Japan via a 10,000km subsea cable, with landing stations in California as well as both Chiba and Mie prefectures. If all goes well it should be ready for service by the end of this year, bringing a potential capacity of 350Tbps to market.

American Tower says it has completed a fiber backbone project down in Brazil. Leveraging Infinera’s GX Series ICE6 800G solution, they have built out connectivity between São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Goiás, Bahia and Federal District. American Tower has an extensive Brazilian network touching 130 cities in Minas Gerais, and this network infrastructure connects that infrastructure to the country’s core digital marketplaces.

And Telehouse Canada has officially entered Toronto. Yesterday they launched 3 new data center locations, adding space at 151 Front Street West, 250 Front Street West, and 906 King Street West to their portfolio. Combined the three locations total some 350,000+ square feet of space that already sits at the core of Canada’s digital infrastructure. The expansion follows a recent move by Telehouse Canada’s parent company KDDI to acquire the facilities last year.
