Lightower Fiber Networks, a northeastern metro fiber and bandwidth provider, recently expanded its footprint in the key New York City and New Jersey areas by providing its all-fiber networking to the TELEHOUSE (News - Alert) America’s Staten Island data center.
Engineered for big bandwidth, low latency, and reliability, Lightower's all-fiber network provides enterprises, financial firms, media companies, and service providers access to state-of-the-art networking solutions.
Touted as a provider of dedicated data centers, TELEHOUSE America powers international Internet exchanges and managed IT services. Its Staten Island facility serves as the company’s regional headquarter, boasting 162,000 square feet of floor space, highest-level security and N+1 Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), redundant cooling and diverse fiber routes for strong reliability.
Both Lightower and TELEHOUSE customers will be seeing vital benefits from this partnership.
