Dark fiber provider United Fiber & Data is building a global data center & colocation provider” for an unknown customer in the New York City area. The facility will use 25 pairs (50 fiber strands total) of dark fiber to connect a Manhattan-based data center to the customer’s facility in Secaucus, NJ, and another data center in Newark, NJ. The dark fiber is part of UFD’s wholly owned and operated, greenfield built, low-latency network that connects the company’s more than 60-mile metro fiber-optic network in New York City, which has more than 330 buildings on net.
Transaction Network Services has significantly upgraded and expanded its network capacity to include dark fiber connectivity in the strategically important “New York Triangle”, giving financial traders ultra-high-speed access to market data and TNS’ financial community of interest. The new TNS dark fiber network can be expanded up to four terabits of capacity, effectively preparing traders’ networks for the future as their data requirements with TNS grow.
