Thursday Roundup: Cologix, Tahoe, Ziply, ArchTop, NYIIX

June 6th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

A bit of data center M&A, three FTTH projects, and an IX upgrade:

Cologix has acquired its way into Iowa. They have purchased two facilities from Connect Des Moines: DSM1 in the Financial Center building at 666 Walnut, and SDM2 in the Cedar Valley region of Cedar Falls. They have also agreed to purchase additional land in Des Moines, upon which they will be able to expand.  Des Moines has been getting more infrastructure attention lately than in the past.

Tahoe Network Infrastructure is expanding its efforts in Wisconsin after an e-Rate win by its subsidiary E-Vergent. They will be hooking up a local school in the city of Marion. Marion is about an hour west of Green Bay. Tahoe NI bought E-Vergent last year, giving them a fiber and fixed wireless presence in Illinois and Wisconsin.

Ziply Fiber has lined up a public/private partnership with Washington’s Island County. Ziply will be building fiber out onto Camano Island, a lightly populated spit of land to the northwest of Seattle. About 100 homes and businesses on the north end of the island will gain symmetrical fiber access, with construction beginning later this year and completion envisioned in mid-2025.

ArchTop Partners has broken ground on a new project up in New York’s Hudson Valley. The regional FTTH project will see them build out an XGS-PON network in the town of Hudson NY. That will complement their existing networks in nearby Kingston, Sugerties, and Rhinebeck. The first customers in Hudson should be online later this summer.

In New York City, the NYIIX peering exchange will be getting an infrastructure upgrade. Telehouse America has selected Nokia’s IP and optical interconnection solutions to deploy a new design featuring up to 400GE interconnection services. NYIIX’s New York footprint has four nodes in Manhattan, one on Staten Island, and two more over in New Jersey.
