In the New York-New Jersey Metro Area, Network-to-Network Cross-Connects Between Data Centers Have Become Mission-Critical

As business continues to become more digitalized and reliant on the cloud, access to transport services between data centers has become mission-critical. The irony is that configuring and purchasing interbuilding and interstate network cross-connects, particularly in the New York/New Jersey metro area, can be a time-consuming and arduous process.

To solve this conundrum, ZenFi and Cross River Fiber have partnered to launch zXc (ZenCross Connect), a self-service platform enabling automated purchase and configuration of interbuilding and interstate network cross-connects. Making interconnections simple and easy to procure, by leveraging a robust fiber-optic network, zXc offers a streamlined portal for ordering bandwidth between data centers and colocation facilities in the New York-New Jersey metro area.
