Industry News

With concerns about security and increasing reliance on data centers, North American companies are embracing SD-WAN technology, each investing about $300,000 on average a year. - Huawei says it has an open architecture for SD-WAN, which would be useful. But the news got eclipsed when HPE publicly rebuked Huawei with a statement that may or may not be a full denial. - Satellite communications company Globalstar is merging with metro fiber provider FiberLight in a deal worth roughly $1.65 billion. Investment firm Thermo Acquisitions, which controls both, pulled all the levers to make the deal happen. - ZenFi Networks and Cross River Fiber have decided to merge. The two companies provide communications infrastructure and services in metropolitan New York and New Jersey. - Verizon lost Fios video customers while gaining Fios internet customers, reporting numbers in line with expectations. It's all a holding action until the company can introduce 5G-based fixed wireless broadband services starting later this year. - AT&T's communications infrastructure in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, damaged in successive hurricanes in 2017, is reliant on overburdened generators for power. The company is encouraging the FCC to devote close to $1 billion for recovery. - CenturyLink’s ongoing voice switch consolidation has enabled the service provider to reduce its annual kilowatt hour usage by 21.8 million in 2017. This effort, which is part of a companywide initiative to reduce emissions, resulted in an EPA-estimated reduction of 12,066 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. - Cyxtera Technologies launched the Cyxtera Extensible Data Center Platform, a software-powered data center architecture that offers customers on-demand provisioning to a host of colocation and connectivity services.   - AT&T has told the FCC that it can help the telecom industry reduce the timelines for make-ready processes by allowing new attachers to use a self-help approach and allowing them to be called project managers. - Frontier Communications has asked the FCC for permission to discontinue two legacy services: Busy Verification (BV) and Busy Interrupt (BI). Consumers now have plenty of next-generation VoIP and other IP-based service options, rendering the old busy signal obsolete, the carrier says. - A new overview of the MVPD market from Cowen came to two major conclusions: cord cutting is no longer the issue, and that cable-wireless convergence is “a ‘when’ not ‘if’ story.” - The internet of things has the potential to be a security nightmare. In response, Microsoft has developed a new chip and new OS built with security in mind: IoT devices that integrate the Azure Sphere microcontroller will connect through Microsoft's secure cloud service. - Crown Castle is beginning to get the return it expected to gain from its $7.1 billion acquisition of Lightower late last year, defying the skepticism of many analysts. In fact, the company’s strategy of amassing fiber infrastructure is succeeding so well that Crown Castle is now talking about expanding its fiber network. - Fewer than one-fifth of all multinational companies subject to the EU's privacy protection rules, the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), are confident they’ll be able to comply when those rules go into effect next month. They’ve had more than two years to prepare. - Adtran continued to see the impact of slower decisions at one of its largest service provider customers around deploying its vectoring solutions, an issue reflected in its first-quarter results. - TDS Telecom, a service provider mainly focused on serving rural markets, says that the FCC’s A-CAM proposal laid out during its monthly meeting will enable it to more effectively build out a larger customer base for business data services (BDS). - Mignon Clyburn is going to be leaving her post as FCC commissioner following a nine-year tenure with the regulator. - Controversy around the FCC’s Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC) continues to swirl as one of the group’s advisers was arrested last week on claims that she lured investors into providing funds for what appears to be a multimillion-dollar investment fraud scheme. - The Broadband Forum has put out its new User Services Platform (USP), a standard aimed at implementing, deploying and managing IoT devices in a broadband-enabled home network. - Incompas made its case known to the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology that paid prioritization will do nothing more than line the pockets of large ISPs with more profits from congested networks. - CenturyLink says that botnets, a network of private computers infected with malicious software and controlled as a group without the owners' knowledge, are something that businesses, governments and even consumers should be more aware of as a real-life cyberthreat. - Google Fiber and Verizon have come to loggerheads with the NCTA’s one-touch-make-ready (OTMR) plan to accelerate the make-ready review process for new pole attachments, kicking up more dust in what has been a contentious debate between incumbent providers and competitors expanding broadband services.    - AT&T Midwest and Legacy workers represented by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) union will continue to work despite the fact their contracts expired on Saturday. - CenturyLink, Frontier and Windstream—three service providers that are in the middle of the wireline incumbent pack—will see broadband fortunes start to turn in the first quarter with a smaller amount of subscriber losses, a Jefferies report forecasts. - Consolidated Communications has pledged to make good where others could not: improve the operations and customer trust in the FairPoint markets it acquired in 2017. But financial analysts say that these efforts won't likely provide a material benefit for the company until the middle of this year. -
