Sidera Networks, a provider of fiber optic-based network systems, and Exponential-e, an Ethernet service provider, have forged a strategic alliance to expand network reach and access to leading financial centers. Specifically, Sidera will expand its connectivity to financial hubs throughout the United Kingdom, whereas Exponential-e will expand its U.S. market presence with direct, low-latency connectivity to the New York and Chicago metro areas.
London, New York, and Chicago are among the top financial centers in the world and serve as a home to many of the top banks, exchanges, and financial services organizations, according to the World Economic Forum.
"We have been looking for direct access to key U.S. financial centers for some time now to address growing U.K. customer demand for connectivity to leading metro areas, such as Chicago and New York," says Mukesh Bavisi, managing director of Exponential-e.
"This announcement marks a significant milestone in extending our leadership in serving financial services clients," explains Mike Sicoli, CEO of Sidera Networks.
Sidera is attending the International Telecoms Week event in Washington, D.C., from May 23 through 25.
