Zayo dark fiber connects Mahwah sites

Fiber-optic network services provider Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO) says it has finished construction of a dark fiber route between the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Data Center facility at 1700 MacArthur Blvd. in Mahwah, NJ, and 755 Secaucus Road, outside of New York City. The route runs 38.3 km "panel to panel," which makes it the shortest, lowest latency fiber cable route available between the two points, Zayo asserts.

Fiber-optic network services provider Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO) says it has finished construction of a dark fiber route between the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Data Center facility at 1700 MacArthur Blvd. in Mahwah, NJ, and 755 Secaucus Road, outside of New York City. The route runs 38.3 km "panel to panel," which makes it the shortest, lowest latency fiber cable route available between the two points, Zayo asserts.

Zayo originally expected the route to run 38.8 km (see "Zayo touts new dark fiber route connecting NYSE"), but the company tightened the deployment after it acquired "key right of ways" during deployment. The fiber-optic cable route offers reduced latency from Mahwah to major data centers via 755 Secaucus Road, including 1400 Federal Blvd. in Carteret, 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, 60 Hudson Street in New York, and 111 8th Avenue in New York. Zayo says it has begun to turn up services for initial customers on the route.

The company expects the dark fiber to prove particularly popular among financial institutions.

"The completed Mahwah route is shorter than originally engineered, which enables us to provide financial firms with an even better solution for high-bandwidth, low latency connectivity," said Zach Nebergall, vice president of metro dark fiber at Zayo. "We look forward to continuing to invest in opportunities like this and continuing to expand our relationships with our customers in the New York area."

The new route also connects to Zayo’s New Jersey/New York dark fiber network, which spans more than 500 route miles, as well as Zayo’s global network, which runs more than 81,500 route miles across the United States and Europe.
