DataVerge serves up a second meet-me room

July 9, 2024
The new facility will offer greater security and network performance and scale.

DataVerge, a Brooklyn-based largest carrier-neutral interconnection facility, has opened a second Meet-Me Room (MMR) at its Brooklyn flagship facility. MMRs facilitate the exchange of data and traffic between networks and eliminate local loops, allowing network providers and tenants to cross connect.

The provider said that the MMR will increase capacity, add redundancy and sustain the increased demand for colocation and expanded connectivity needs for businesses in Brooklyn and the greater Tri-State area. 

Establishing an additional MMR enables multiple telecommunications and network service providers to ensure an always-on connection between their equipment, streamlining data exchange and traffic between their networks. Moreover, by facilitating a redundant connection among internet service providers (ISPs), cable companies, cloud service providers, and other tenants, DataVerge ensures the uninterrupted flow of data within the colocation facility.

As DataVerge expands its interconnection capacity in response to local demand, companies in Brooklyn and the surrounding area can benefit through redundant connectivity and increased capacity.

Another key element is accessing a wide array of fiber providers. Today, DataVerge has connectivity agreements with 30 top-tier carriers, including Astound, Zayo, Arelion, Crown Castle, Lightpath, Boldyn, Verizon, AT&T and others.

The opening of the new meet-me room follows DataVerge’s move to bolster its relationship with Industry City.  

In January, DataVerge signed a new 20-year deal that will ensure that DataVerge continues to provide fiber infrastructure, connectivity, colocation, and cloud services, in addition to direct access to dark fiber, metro, and long haul transport providers, to more than 500 companies located on Industry City's 35-acre campus in Brooklyn and throughout the region.

As the largest interconnected business and technology campus in the United States, Industry City comprises 6 million square feet of mixed-use space spread across 16 buildings. Owners of the property, led by Belvedere Capital, Jamestown L.P., and Angelo Gordon & Co., have spent more than $450 million on infrastructure improvements.
