In order to better serve the financial services industry, Optimum Lightpath announced today that it has expanded its service into Telx’s Clifton, N.J., colocation and interconnection facility.
The latest connection to Telx’s facility, located at 100 Delawanna Ave. in Clifton, expanded Optimum Lightpath’s connection to Telx facilities at 111 8th Ave. in New York City and 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, N.J.
According to Optimum Lightpath, Telx serves some of the most advanced algorithmic trading, service providers and financial exchanges in the world. Many of these businesses now have access to Optimum Lightpath’s fiber-based services in New York City and northern New Jersey for low latency and route diversity advantages.
Telx’s 24,000 square feet of colocation space in Clifton is located 11 miles outside of New York City, which gives it a prime location for serving financial institutions in the area. The strategic location offers customers the ability to lease private cages and cabinets, with direct access to more than 400 carriers, business exchanges and enterprises through a single cross-connection.
“Competition in the financial services sector has primarily become defined by speed, and Optimum Lightpath continues to take steps to stay ahead of this need and ensure that its customers have the advantage they need to be successful every day,” said Michael Sevret, vice president of sales for Optimum Lightpath. “From our recently introduced low-latency and 40 Gigabit optical transport services to our latest connection to Telx’s state-of-the-art Clifton facility, we are providing the tools needed to power the array of complex businesses in the financial services sector. Beyond the technical advantage that these companies demand, Optimum Lightpath also delivers the fast turn-up times and award-winning customer service that businesses crave.”
In addition to the 40 Gigabit optical transport service, other Optimum Lightpath offerings for the financial services sector include a low-latency optical transport service and Virtual Private Ring Service (VPRS).
