Lightpath will provide cross-connects to DataVerge's meet-me rooms, integrating and expanding the ecosystems of the two companies.

DataVerge, which owns and operates what it asserts is the only carrier-neutral interconnection facility in Brooklyn, says it has partnered with business fiber connectivity provider Lightpath to provide additional connectivity options into the Brooklyn site. Lightpath will provide cross-connects to DataVerge's meet-me rooms, integrating and expanding the ecosystems of the two companies.

Located at Industry City in Sunset Park, DataVerge features a 50,000-square-foot data center space. "We are excited to partner with Lightpath to expand our reach, increase the number of service providers in our ecosystem, and better serve our family of customers," said Ruben Magurdumov, COO and co-founder of DataVerge. "The more flexibility we have in connecting to fiber networks and the more diversity we have in our provider ecosystem, the stronger and more prosperous the digital economy of the Brooklyn area becomes."

Lightpath’s network consists of more than 20,000 route miles of fiber and connects to move than 75 data centers. The fiber infrastructure provides connectivity to more than 13,500 service locations throughout the country.

"Lightpath is delighted to increase and enhance connectivity for tenants, customers, and carriers, as well as support in-building connectivity services for the robust, mixed-use space known as Industry City," said Lightpath CEO Chris Morley. "Not only is this vibrant hub ideally located just outside of Manhattan, it is also a model ecosystem."
