Cross River Fiber Completes Buildout in New Jersey
By Carolyn J Dawson
Cross River Fiber has successfully completed a fiber optic build-out in Northern New Jersey, spanning a minimum of 40 miles. The latest sturdy fiber optic network, which belongs to Cross River Fiber, will be used to by Cross River Fiber and Hudson Fiber Network to deliver a portfolio of Lit and Dark Fiber bandwidth offerings to end-users.
The Mahwah routes have established novel industry standards by offering improved performance as compared to available performance predictions. The Mahwah routes use direct fiber interconnections to 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, 755 Secaucus Road in Secaucus, 165 Halsey Street in Newark, and 1400 Federal Boulevard in Carteret, thereby decreasing latency. The plan and construction of the physical fiber optic route was carried out by Cross River Fiber. The optical lit platform on the route, which provides offerings for 10MB to 40G optical lit and passive transport services, was created and designed by HFN.
In a statement, Vincenzo Clemente, president and CEO of Cross River Fiber said, "Through our strategic partnership with HFN, Cross River Fiber is able to expand its footprint to Mahwah, adding more fiber route miles to our already expansive, owned fiber optic network. The Mahwah paths are critical to New Jersey and New York metro area financial institutions and enterprises. They deliver the lowest fiber latency connectivity available today, as well as optimal performance and critical redundancy to aid in the transport of climbing market data volume."
The Mahwah routes showcases Cross River Fiber’s improved aptitude in assisting the low-latency, high bandwidth needs of enterprise and financial arenas. Apart from the Mahwah routes, Cross River is expected to complete two other important network build-outs in 2013. Cross Rivers not only expects to finish 45 miles by the end of the first quarter, but also aims to finish additional 65 miles by the end of the fourth quarter.
