Boutique dark fiber and optic provider Cross River Fiber has completed its latest 40+ mile fiber-optic buildout, in Northern New Jersey.
The Mahwah route reduces latency, the company said, with direct fiber interconnections to 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, 755 Secaucus Road in Secaucus, 165 Halsey Street in Newark and 1400 Federal Boulevard in Carteret.
Cross River Fiber designed and built the physical fiber-optic route, while its partner, Hudson Fiber Network (HFN), developed and architected the optical lit platform on the route, supporting 10MB to 40G optical lit and passive transport services.
HFN, a U.S.-based transport and IP services provider specializing in delivering network solutions to the financial community, will also offer a suite of lit and dark-fiber bandwidth solutions to end-users.
“Through our strategic partnership with HFN, Cross River Fiber is able to expand its footprint to Mahwah, adding more fiber route miles to our already expansive, owned fiber optic network,” said Vincenzo Clemente, president and CEO of Cross River Fiber. “The Mahwah paths are critical to New Jersey and New York metro area financial institutions and enterprises. They deliver the lowest fiber latency connectivity available today, as well as optimal performance and critical redundancy to aid in the transport of climbing market data volume.”
The Mahwah route is the first of three major network buildouts for Cross River in 2013, with projections to complete another 45 miles by the end of the first quarter, and another 65+ miles by end of the year.
