Builds on Company’s Strategic Direction of Providing Unique Connectivity to Major Data Centers
Fibertech Networks, a leading provider of metro-based fiber optic network services to customers in the Eastern and Central United States, today announced it has completed its diverse fiber optic connection into DuPont Fabros Technology’s (“DFT”) New Jersey data center (“NJ1”) located in Piscataway, New Jersey. This complements Fibertech’s strategic direction of bringing fiber directly into NJ1 to offer its customers high-speed connectivity and low latency solutions.
“Fibertech’s unique footprint makes it an ideal competitive provider for new and existing tenants looking for metro fiber connectivity within our NJ1 data center,” said Vinay Nagpal, Director of Carrier Relations for DFT. “We are focused on delivering highly specialized, secure, network-neutral facilities and are pleased to welcome one of fastest growing metro providers throughout the Northeast corridor.”
“DFT’s NJ1 data center is one of the largest, most sophisticated and efficient facilities available in the Greater Metro New York Area,” said Mike Hurley, VP Sales and Marketing for Fibertech. “With more than 1,100 miles of fiber throughout New Jersey, Fibertech will be able to offer a suite of low latency optical solutions as well as dark fiber connectivity for unlimited bandwidth to DFT’s tenants.”
He added, “We will continue to bring our high-speed optical network to major data aggregation points throughout our footprint in an effort to meet the growing bandwidth demands of both carrier and enterprise customers. In doing so, our differentiation comes from our ability to extend the benefits of the data center’s reliability and cost-efficiencies to business locations throughout the area.”
DFT’s carrier and enterprise customers will have access to Fibertech’s New Jersey metro networks as well as other major east coast metropolitan areas.
