Netrality Properties welcomes Lightpath to its carrier-neutral interconnection
NEW YORK, NY — (March 17, 2016) – Lightpath, an industry leading provider of Ethernet-based communication solutions for NY metro businesses, has established a Point of Presence (PoP) at 325 Hudson Street. 325 Hudson Street, a Netrality Properties managed carrier-neutral interconnection facility, continues its growth as a premier Carrier Hotel and Meet Me Room operator in New York City. Lightpath’s PoP offers access to the company’s network, including its ultra-high bandwidth services, to 325 Hudson Street’s existing Network Carrier and Enterprise customer base.
Lightpath operates one of the densest metro area fiber networks in the country, with over seven thousand (7,000) lit locations in the NY metro area. As Lightpath SVP of Sales Joe Flynn remarked, “In the New York metro area, Lightpath’s far-reaching fiber network takes businesses where they need to go. We understand that it is crucial for businesses to be able to move data quickly, reliably and easily throughout the region and have designed our network and services to meet these demands. We look forward to a collaborative relationship with Netrality around opportunities at 325 Hudson and beyond.”

Danko, Director of Business Development at 325 Hudson, commented, “The significant deployment of Lightpath’s fiber network into the 325 Hudson Meet Me Room provides a premium service in our ecosystem to address network traffic needs, particularly those with large data transport demands, such as the media and entertainment space. Lightpath’s focus on the needs of businesses across the New York metropolitan area will attract other entities and networks to create an on-net presence at 325 Hudson, and leverage the ability to interconnect to Lightpath, without being exposed to monthly recurring cross connect fees.” Lightpath has continued to foster a reputation for its flexibility and premium level of customer service.
