Telx, a domestic interconnection and colocation data center operator, offers Lexent direct and secure access to other financial and service provider networks, also colocated in Clifton. Telx customers can then use Lexent’s fast, secure, and flexible dark fiber solutions to ensure low-latency routing to other financial exchanges and trading houses in and around New York metro area and Northern New Jersey.

“Telx provides a managed, network-neutral, secure colocation environment and Lexent provides the flexible and shortest, dark fiber routes,” states William Kolman, executive vice president of sales for Telx. “As financial executives continue to increase their need for low latency, partnering with companies like Lexent offers our customers superior network performance that provides a competitive edge on the trading floor.”

In addition, Lexent announces its plans to extend the New Jersey latency sensitive dark fiber network further south, with dark fiber builds into Carteret and Piscataway. These locations host additional data centers with a high concentration of financial networks present.
