Telx announced that the company was selected by Cross River Fiber, a New Jersey-based CLEC and boutique, dark fiber optic and telecommunications solutions provider.
According to the agreement, Telx will provide its facilities in Clifton (NJR2 at 100 Delawanna Ave and NJR3 data center at 2 Peekay) to Cross River Fiber to build an ultra low-latency fiber into its facilities. On their way to financial exchanges in Secaucus and Weehawken, the new Cross River Fiber routes pass directly through Clifton.
Cross River Fiber has been building some new routes that are created to considerably decrease latency to NYSE's Mahwah facility from the existing fiber optic routes. This new addition will provide a latency competitive route as the distance between Telx's Clifton facilities and Mahwah will provide the most direct path.

Offering perfect connections between facilities, the company's popular model of interconnection within facilities and metros will be expanded with Datacenter Connect.
