Wireless networks have grown increasingly sophisticated in recent years to meet demands of users seeking consistent, quality connectivity from nearly anywhere on any device. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing movement that is permeating every market, driving a need for better Internet connectivity to enable today’s demand for always-on communications. Cisco predicts that there will be more than 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020, making the adoption of innovative wireless practices critical for technological growth. Today, ZenFi Networks is working to provide cutting-edge optical network technology specifically designed to enable IoT and provide organizations with the high-performance infrastructure necessary to support continued mobile growth as well as consistent service accessibility and reliability.
By extending its purpose-built dark fiber network to NYC-based carrier-neutral interconnection facility 325 Hudson, ZenFi Networks Inc. offers enterprises, mobile wireless operators, and telecommunications service providers throughout the New York metro area the fast and reliable access to its fronthaul and backhaul fiber services. This provides neutral hosts and mobile wireless carriers with the necessary antenna site to hub location connectivity, further enabling the proliferation of IoT.
ZenFi’s fronthaul and backhaul fiber connects cell towers to base stations and carrier hotels such as 325 Hudson that house fixed wireline networks. Employing an innovative model featuring neighborhood network and colocation infrastructure strategically designed for densification, ZenFi offers wireless providers within 325 Hudson as well as other New York metro area carrier hotel facilities direct connectivity to traditional wireline service providers. The company’s fronthaul, backhaul and distributed colocation solutions provide a solution to the mobile wireless densification problem by bringing more small cells, in-building and outdoor Distributed Antenna System (DAS) remotes, Remote Radio Heads (RRHs), macro sites and Wi-Fi access points closer to end users.
325 Hudson is a 10-story modern carrier hotel located along the fiber-dense Hudson Street corridor. It provides customers with superior colocation services featuring innovative infrastructure, affordable cross-connects and a unique wireless Meet Me Room. Located in New York City, a city with one of the highest concentrations of mobile and fixed broadband users in the nation, 325 Hudson has created the optimal environment designed to encourage organizational growth and success.
The age of IoT is here. Fast, reliable and high-capacity wireless connectivity is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. ZenFi is at the forefront of this movement, providing users with high-performance optical network solutions in critical areas to overcome today’s connectivity problems and enable the Internet of Things.
