Boulder, Colo. – November 6, 2014 – Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), a global provider of dark fiber products, today announced the availability 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 new route is engineered at 38.8 km and is connected to Zayo’s extensive New Jersey/New York dark fiber network, which spans more than 500 route miles. The project is expected to be complete early in the first quarter of 2015.
Zayo’s newest dark fiber route is the shortest, lowest latency fiber route currently available between the two key facilities, providing financial institutions with the reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity required for trading and transporting financial data. 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 will also offer a fully diverse ring solution between Mahwah and 755 Secaucus Road.
“The Mahwah route is engineered to meet the demands of the area’s major financial firms that depend on reliable, secure, high-bandwidth connectivity to support critical trading traffic and business operations,” said Zach Nebergall, vice president of metro dark fiber at Zayo. “We are always looking for opportunities to invest in the New York and Northern New Jersey area in support of our customers.”
The new route connects to Zayo’s expansive dark fiber footprint, which extends more than 81,000 route miles across the United States and Europe. Customers will have access to Zayo’s high-bandwidth solutions including metro dark fiber and wavelengths.
