DataVerge, owner and operator of a select carrier-neutral interconnection facility in Brooklyn and a trusted partner to carriers, network operators and enterprise IT in the New York City region, has announced a partnership with Lightpath, among the densest end-to-end all-fiber networks in the New York metro area.
The new strategic partnership supports the expanding technology footprint of both companies in the booming Brooklyn region, which the partners contend has traditionally been an underserved network infrastructure market.
Lightpath now provides cross-connects to DataVerge's meet-Me rooms, integrating and expanding both ecosystems. The Lightpath Network consists of over 20,000 route miles of fiber and connects at over 75 data centers, providing connectivity to more than 13,500 service locations throughout the country.
With direct access to dark fiber, metro, and long haul transport providers, DataVerge's carrier-neutral position makes it an ideal network interconnection ecosystem partner in Brooklyn, New York City's most populous borough. Their flagship facility is the sole meeting point for connectivity at Industry City — the largest interconnected campus in the United States.
With over 50,000 square feet of colocation space, DataVerge provides dedicated, private connection options to hundreds of network, cloud and IT service providers. Expanding into Industry City is only the latest in a number of initiatives by Lightpath to broaden connectivity and provider options to businesses and residents in the Tri-State area.
Lightpath CEO Chris Morley commented:
"Lightpath is delighted to increase and enhance connectivity for tenants, customers and carriers, as well as support in-building connectivity services for the robust, mixed use space known as Industry City. Not only is this vibrant hub ideally located just outside of Manhattan, it is also a model ecosystem."
Ruben Magurdumov, COO and co-founder of DataVerge:
"We are excited to partner with Lightpath to expand our reach, increase the number of service providers in our ecosystem, and better serve our family of customers. The more flexibility we have in connecting to fiber networks and the more diversity we have in our provider ecosystem, the stronger and more prosperous the digital economy of the Brooklyn area becomes."
