New York – April 17, 2012 — Sidera Networks, the premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, announces that it has enhanced its Transcom Route, which runs from New York to Washington, DC, to include a diverse path to its Ashburn, VA data center fiber ring via Frederick, MD, bypassing downtown Washington, DC. The result is a unique and completely diverse path from traditional fiber routes along the I-95 corridor. This is welcome news for large financial, enterprise and carrier customers who wish to bypass major congestion points on the I-95 corridor in support of important data center, disaster recovery, and cloud application requirements.
“Over the last couple of months, Sidera has been systematically connecting to all of the major data centers in the Ashburn, VA area – one of the largest Internet content distribution points in the world and a major disaster recovery location for our financial services customers,” said Clint Heiden, President, Sidera Networks. “Many of our customers are looking for a means to enhance network diversity and bypass Washington, DC and the I-95 corridor.” Heiden continued, “Sidera is in a unique position, with sole ownership of its Transcom Route, to deliver on this requirement.”
