Jan. 24, 2013
Cross River Fiber, a New Jersey-based, boutique dark fiber-optic network services and telecommunications provider, says it has completed construction on a direct end-to-end dark fiber route between Weehawken and Secaucus, NJ. The ultra-low latency route interconnects two key data center hubs servicing the New York metro financial services community. The 5.94 km distance ensures the lowest fiber latency between these two key data center hubs, Cross River Fiber says.

Cross River Fiber, a New Jersey-based, boutique dark fiber services and telecommunications provider, says it has completed construction on a direct end-to-end dark fiber route between Weehawken and Secaucus, NJ. The ultra-low latency route interconnects two key data center hubs servicing the New York metro financial services community. The 5.94 km distance ensures the lowest fiber latency between these two key data center hubs, Cross River Fiber says.

The Weehawken site, at 300 Boulevard East, is a multi-tenant data center with direct connectivity to all of the major facilities throughout the New York metro market, including key financial market exchanges. Cross River Fiber’s newly constructed route connects the facility to 755 Secaucus, where more key financial market exchanges reside.

"The completion of this new route in an exclusive partnership with Hudson Fiber Network provides companies greater accessibility to lit, passive, and dark fiber services in the much sought-after Northern New Jersey marketplace," said Vincenzo Clemente, president and CEO of Cross River Fiber. "With a distance of only 5.94 km end-to-end, this new, low-latency fiber route offers a major improvement, shaving kilometers from the next best commercially available routes."

This network extension also provides access to Cross River Fiber’s fiber-optic network, connecting nearly a dozen markets throughout New Jersey. The Secaucus-to-Weehawken route is currently available, and customers can be turned-up within 10 days. The committed service level agreements (SLAs) are based on the actual measured optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) distance stated above.
