The company specializes in CLEC (Competitive Local Exchange Carrier) and boutique dark fiber solutions. Cross River maintains an independent fiber-optic network infrastructure. It specializes in delivering scalable high-speed fiber optic network that are suitable for business requirements.
The deployment includes an ultra-low latency route of 5.94 km distance interconnecting two key data center hubs serving the New York metro financial services community. This is expected to ensure low fiber latency between the key data center hubs.
