Here's a quick rundown of some other news from this week that's worth a look:Coriant has won a new convert to its G30 network disaggregation solution. Hurricane Electric has deployed Coriant's gear out in Silicon Valley, connecting data centers in San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Jose, and Fremont. The upgrade gives HE multi-terabit connectivity around the metro area with support for alien wavelengths. CityFibre and Vodafone have picked their first FTTP target over in the UK this week.
Sprint and Cox Communications are moving to deepen their ties, signing a new multi-year business agreement while also settling some patent litigation. The deal will see Sprint gain greater access to Cox's broadband infrastructure, adding density to the company's backhaul networks. In other words, Cox's network will help them bring fiber to more towers, from the macro sites down to the small cells.
The period just before PTC each year is always a big week for submarine cable announcements, and 2018 appears to be no exception. Another big new intercontinental project was unveiled yesterday, this time connecting the Americas. TE SubCom has been selected by Google to design and deploy the Curie Submarine Cable, named after the scientist Marie Curie.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
