Boulder, Colo. – January 27, 2015 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO), an international provider of dark fiber products, today announced the completion of a dark fiber route between the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Data Center facility at 1700 MacArthur Blvd in Mahwah, New Jersey and 755 Secaucus Road, outside of New York City. The completed route spans 38.3 km panel to panel, making the new route the shortest, lowest latency fiber route currently available between the two locations.
Zayo’s new route was originally engineered to be 38.8 km, but after securing key right of ways during construction, it measures 38.3 km. The 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 Ave in New York. Zayo is currently turning up services for initial customers, which provides financial institutions with the reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity required to transport critical financial data.
“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 connects to Zayo’s New Jersey/New York dark fiber network, which spans more than 500 route miles, and Zayo’s global network, which extends more than 81,500 route miles across the United States and Europe. Customers on the new route have access to Zayo’s high-bandwidth solutions including metro dark fiber and wavelengths.
