Ryan asked Randy if there’s any update on the Miami dark fiber request. Randy reported he’s working with a few vendors to get those quotes in but it’s taking time. Ryan clarified the current Netflix provided solution ends in Q1-2024.

Randy gave a report on maintenance activities later that evening, including backbone upgrades between QTS Miami and Equinix-MI1. Further, the OpenGear has been installed at QTS and is operating properly. The OpenGear at Equinix-MI1 still doesn’t work properly.
Awaiting OpenGear’s 3rd replacement to be shipped. Seems to be a bad batch of devices.
