For the past two years, 1025 Old Country Road (1025OCR), also known as the Long Island Technology Center, has been instrumental in turning Westbury, New York into a hub for innovation and job growth within the technology and telecommunications industries. 1025OCR was the winner of the “Deal of the Year” award presented by the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency (IDA). The Long Island Technology Center is a multi-use commercial building, providing office space and roof rights. It is Long Island’s leading carrier hotel for colocation and network connectivity.

Home to 1025Connect, Long Island’s premier carrier hotel and network-neutral Meet-Me Room for interconnection and colocation, the Long Island Technology Center provides customers with unprecedented international connectivity, enabling easier access and delivery of content distributed at the “Continental Edge.” This facility is renowned for its ability to connect global subsea systems to terrestrial networks with the option to bypass Manhattan using network-neutral fiber routes, ultimately establishing greater network diversity. In addition, 1025Connect serves as the easternmost peering point in the New York metro area, and provides customers with direct access to DE-CIX’s premium interconnection platform for access to world-class peering and connectivity solutions.

As businesses move toward cloud migration for their mission-critical applications and operations, advanced connectivity and access to expert colocation services is critical. However, when it comes to connectivity, not all buildings are created equal. The Long Island Technology Center is designed to support hybrid cloud deployments with readily-available high-speed internet, phone and cloud platforms, as well as direct interconnectivity between North America, Europe and Latin America.
