Lightower to Build Ultra Low Latency Network in Mahwah, New Jersey
By Raju Shanbhag
Lightower recently announced it will build into the primary financial exchange data center located in Mahwah, New Jersey. The company will be ready to build to the facility as soon as access is available to service providers with dense network already in place near the Mahwah facility.
The Lightower Ultra-Low Latency Network is an all-optical network that makes use of the power of The Lightower Network with Wavelength (DWDM) technology, providing an ultra-low latency networking solution.
To cater to the increasing demand for low latency bandwidth, all backed by a Lightower Latency Service Level Agreement (SLA), Lightower’s Ultra-Low Latency Network services provide the flexibility of 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps options.
Lightower will soon combine the site into its network of ultra-low latency routes and solutions, once the Mahwah financial hub is available to service providers in the latter half of 2012.
The company has the most fiber routes and access into more service locations of any metro fiber provider in the New York City and northern New Jersey area, the company stated in a press release.
“Lightower will offer customers the most networking options at this critical financial services destination,” explained Rob Shanahan, CEO at Lightower. “With the dense network that Lightower already has in place near the facility, we will be able to offer multiple geographically diverse routing options to customers in order to connect them to other major data centers in the area. Customers can also connect from Mahwah to any of the hundreds of commercial buildings Lightower has built into within New York City.”
Recently, the company announced a new network expansion along with an expansion of its existing collocation facility. The network expansion enhances Lightower's footprint in and around East Providence with 21 miles of new fiber.
