Sidera extends Chicago-area network to Elk Grove data centers
Sidera Networks has extended its Chicago metro network to the area’s largest data center park in Elk Grove, IL. Sidera will offer dark fiber and lit services from 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps on this newly constructed fiber-optic network route between Chicago and three different data centers located in Elk Grove Village.The Chicago-metro market serves as a major financial and content hub centrally located between the east and west coasts of the United States. Data centers in Aurora, Wood Dale, and Elk Grove serve large enterprises, financial institutions, and media organizations that require high-capacity bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and diverse connectivity. Sidera's new network route traverses north from Chicago to deliver dedicated fiber to three data centers located within a 1-mile radius in Elk Grove.In addition, Sidera will soon connect Elk Grove to Aurora to complete a fiber ring from Chicago to Elk Grove, down to Aurora and back to Chicago, as shown on this map: http://www.sidera.net/network-solutions/cloud-data-center-connectivity/chicago-metro/."This expansion enhances Sidera’s network capabilities within the Chicago-metro market to deliver unparalleled high-performance connectivity not just to Chicago and Aurora, where we have network today, but also to data center parks such as Elk Grove and Wood Dale," comments Clint Heiden, president of Sidera Networks. "This is an important market, not just for financial services, but also for content, cloud, and media because of its central location between the U.S. coasts.”Sidera's network between Chicago and Elk Grove delivers high-capacity connectivity to the largest consolidated business park in North America and interconnects three major data center facilities including Equinix (CH3), DuPont Fabros Technology (CH1), and Savvis (CH3). Additional network connectivity to data centers in Wood Dale is planned, the company adds.
David Stehlin new CEO of MRV
Optical transport systems and services vendor MRV Communications, Inc. (OTCQB: MRVC) has named David Stehlin to replace the recently retired Barry Gorsun as CEO of the company. Gorsun resigned effective January 31, but will stay on as a consultant for six months.Stehlin steps up to CEO from his previous role as president of MRV's Optical Communication Systems (OCS) division. He has extensive experience in senior management roles in communications systems companies. Prior to joining MRV in 2011 as senior vice president of sales for OCS (he became president of the division in February 2012), Stehlin was president of Overture Networks, Inc., president and CEO of Ceterus Networks, Inc. before it merged into Overture Networks, and president and CEO of startup Valo, Inc. From 1999 to 2001, he was the president and CEO of OnePath Networks, Inc."David Stehlin is a telecommunications industry veteran with over 20 years of experience and we are confident that he is the right leader to take MRV to the next level,” said Kenneth Traub, Chairman of MRV's Board of Directors. “Over the past nearly two years while at MRV, Dave has been instrumental in helping develop MRV's strategic direction, leading MRV's OCS division and securing major new customers. Dave has the Board's full support as we move forward on our plan to strengthen and grow MRV, while building value for our stockholders."Gorsun, who became CEO in February 2012, leaves the company after shepherding it through a recent refocusing of assets (see “MRV to divest network integration business, focus on optical communications”). "The Board of Directors would like to thank Barry for his exemplary leadership of MRV," said Traub. "Under Barry's leadership, we renewed the company's commitment to building MRV's core OCS business, resolved long-standing contingent liabilities, sold three non-core subsidiaries in Europe, and returned a substantial amount of capital to stockholders. We wish Barry well in his future endeavors and appreciate his continued service to MRV during this transition."
TIA FOLS changes name to Fiber Optics Technology Consortium
As an acknowledgement that enterprise network managers now have more to worry about than local area networks (LANs), the Telecommunications Industry Association’s (TIA) Fiber Optics LAN Section (FOLS) has decided to rename itself the Fiber Optics Technology Consortium (FOTC).Members of the FOLS, a group of vendors of fiber-optic network technology, in particular have noticed the growing opportunities for fiber-optic cable in data center environments and have been attempting to address this environment for some time.“Our new name better reflects our evolving scope,” says Rodney Casteel, chairman of the FOTC. “There is so much opportunity now in the use of fiber-optic technology beyond the local area network that it made sense for our group to embrace those changes. Fiber-based solutions are now integral to campus environments, data centers, and other emerging applications. We are working to disseminate information about them all.”The new FOTC website (www.tiafotc.org) builds on the foundation of the old FOLS home on the Internet. It offers whitepapers, FAQs on fiber, presentations, technology information, and the group’s interactive Network Architecture Model. The model enables users to compare and assess different standards-approved architectures – hierarchical star, centralized cabling, and fiber-to-the-telecom enclosure. The model includes information about both fiber and copper media. The FOTC hopes to release a new, updated version of the model later this year.FOTC members include 3M; AFL; Berk-Tek, a Nexans Company; CommScope; Corning; Fluke Networks; General Cable; Leviton; OFS; Ortronics/Legrand; Panduit; Prysmian Group; Sumitomo Electric Lightwave; Superior Essex; and TE Connectivity. Companies interested in participating in the TIA’s FOTC should contact Ancilla Brady, TIA’s Director, Member Relations & Services, at abrady@tiaonline.org.
