TWCBC completes Hudson Valley fiber project
Time Warner Cable Business Class has wrapped up a fiber-optics project for TechCity Properties in the Hudson Valley that included installing fiber access points on the 258-acre, 2.2-million-square-foot TechCity complex.
TechCity, located near Kingston, N.Y., is being marketed to large data center operators in order to help them offer cloud services to their customers. In an effort to help TechCity attract potential data center tenants, Time Warner Cable Business Class installed fiber access points at the property’s north and south ends that increased its redundancy.
“Fiber connectivity is a critical element in attracting data-dependent operations and data centers to TechCity and the Hudson Valley,” said Alan Ginsberg, chairman of TechCity Properties. “Creating a redundant system ensures maximum uptime and gives TechCity another competitive advantage compared to other sites in the Hudson Valley and New York State.”
As businesses take up occupancy on the TechCity campus, Time Warner Cable Business Class will connect their locations with fiber access points, allowing the tenants to access a complete lineup of business communications offerings, including Internet, Ethernet, phone and cable TV, as well as other value-added business services.
“Our early-on decision to extend our fiber network to TechCity sends a strong signal to the data center industry that this business campus stands prime and ready for immediate occupancy,” said Ken Fitzpatrick, president of Time Warner Cable Business Class’ East Region. “As the premier telecommunications provider in New York and beyond, we look forward to serving the technology needs of TechCity tenants and businesses throughout the Hudson Valley.”
