RE: New NAP Opening in Miami this week

My mistake, the RA is hot as or today at the Mix. I was just
corrected off list.
Actually Bellsouth is hot. I have been to the sites. The fibre is
and hot. Im sure there are things like the RA that may not be hot
yet if that is what is being referred to. It's a good network with
fibre from different carries on diverse routes. The interesting
prospect I think is that since they have nodes in locations like W.
Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale (not just miami) your local loop from
these areas would be significantly cheaper than running to that other
NAP in Miami. This may be attractive for carriers or backbones in
that area. The Mix nodes are also located at locations like
transoceanic fibre nodes. Since it's a layer 1 network also, geeez
maybe it's good for cheap transport.
I think the NOTA building that was built was built well. 32ft is not
bad for florida at all. It seems like a fine colo with one concern,
it's in an evacation area. Which means u need to have key people
there before the storm restrictions kick in or they arent getting
there. As we know, no one gets rich building a nap, this is model
plans on making money from colo space which is also tough right now.
The other model is a, hey we dont care where u are at, use us for
peering and hmmm we can do wave service and local loops and whatever
else you can come up with for a dwdm/optical switched core network.
It is going to be interesting to see how both naps evolve and develop
One negative with the mix-nap is that they used blue and orange
colors, Univ of Florida, for their tshirts. What an insult :-)

According to this story
zdnet, there is a large NAP opening this week in Miami. This NAP will
primarily be used to pipe traffic to and from Latin and South America.
