There are many carriers and enterprises seeking diverse and flexible fiber connectivity routes in and out of the crowded and expensive New York City market, and the demand for dark fiber is steadily growing.
Just recently, ZenFi announced the completion of new dark fiber build-outs at ColoGuard’s flagship CGNY1 data center — the only data center and carrier-neutral hotel in Brooklyn — and 32 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.
These new build-outs provide customers of ColoGuard and 32 Avenue of the Americas with complete access to the ZenFi network.
The dark fiber build-outs will connect a diverse set of customers across multiple industry verticals. Aimed at carriers and enterprises, the build-outs will provide new connectivity options and will allow these entities to integrate additional diversity into their routes to and from destinations in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area.
“The dark fiber build-outs at ColoGuard’s Brooklyn carrier-neutral hotel and 32 Avenue of the Americas marks another critical phase of ZenFi’s aggressive network expansion,” stated ZenFi President and Chief Executive Officer, Ray LaChance concerning the announcement. “Dark fiber is the most flexible connectivity option for carriers and enterprises as it can support multiple services with different protocols simultaneously. Organizations whose connectivity requirements call for diverse routing now have a new, flexible and reliable option in these facilities to better serve their customers.”
ZenFi owns and operates a carrier-neutral dark fiber network that specializes in fronthaul, backhaul and wavelength connectivity, while providing on-net connectivity to eight major carrier hotels in New York City and 19 data centers in New Jersey.
