FEBRUARY 16, 2010 -- AboveNet Inc., a provider of high-bandwidth connectivity solutions, has linked its network with the New York metropolitan area colocation facilities of Telx, an interconnection and colocation provider in key North American markets.

AboveNet's network opens up a new range of choices for companies that need ultra-low latency connectivity for mission-critical business and financial data applications. Now Telx's New York area customers can leverage AboveNet's high-speed links between Telx data centers and hundreds of carrier and enterprise customers.

"Here in the world's financial epicenter, companies including the leading capital markets firms have zero tolerance for network interruption, and they demand physical path diversity to ensure the highest reliability and lowest latency for their customers," says Bill Kolman, vice president of sales for Telx. "AboveNet and Telx deliver this level of performance and offer customers the power of choice."

AboveNet's fiber-optic network connects Telx's four primary New York metro area data centers at 111 8th Avenue, 60 Hudson Street in New York, 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, N.J., and Telx's newest facility at 100 Delawanna Avenue in Clifton, N.J., using diverse fiber routes with two separate Hudson River crossings.

AboveNet has also extended its dense metro optical network within the Telx suite at 100 Delawanna Avenue, where it will establish a point of presence (PoP) for serving customers. This enables AboveNet's customers to distribute applications or other critical infrastructure components to Telx's Clifton, N.J. data center, and provides business continuity, disaster recovery, and storage options for Telx's New York-based customers.
