ZenFi New York Metro Cross-Connects and Access Network Connectivity Available Throughout Manhattan and The Bronx

ZenFi Dark Fiber Solutions Available for Immediate Turn-Up in New York's Largest Carrier Hotels With Extended Connectivity to the Bronx

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 9, 2016) - ZenFi, New York's carrier-neutral fronthaul fiber provider, today announces the availability of its highly flexible and scalable dark fiber network across New York City including Manhattan and The Bronx. This marks a critical phase of ZenFi's aggressive network expansion, followed by future dark fiber connectivity throughout the City's remaining boroughs, including Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.

To enable its promise of "Any Pair. Anywhere.™", ZenFi now delivers distributed, highly flexible and scalable dark fiber connectivity between New York City's largest carrier hotels. ZenFi New York Metro Cross-Connect Services, with connectivity to 18 New Jersey-based data centers, are currently available for immediate turn-up in 111 8th Avenue, 75 Broad Street, 85 10th Avenue, 60 Hudson Street and 325 Hudson Street. The ZenFi Access Network is also operational in the Bronx, providing customers with extended connectivity throughout the borough and back into Manhattan. Leveraging a neighborhood network and colocation infrastructure model, the network is specifically designed to support widely distributed wireless equipment interconnection and colocation.

"ZenFi has created a pervasive dark fiber network unlike anything previously available in the New York metro area," explains ZenFi President and CEO, Ray LaChance. "By establishing colo-to-colo connectivity between Manhattan's largest carrier hotels and extending our Access Network to The Bronx, ZenFi is enabling enhanced wireless connectivity and the Internet of Things in New York, allowing customers to connect anywhere in the City on a dedicated, dark fiber platform."

The ZenFi network is custom-built to support wireless service provider requirements for densification -- bringing more small cells, in-building and outdoor Distributed Antenna System (DAS) remotes, Remote Radio Heads (RRHs), macro sites and Wi-Fi access points closer to the user -- and increase the accessibility and affordability of bandwidth at the edge. Combining the ZenFi Access Network with a core carrier Express Network, which delivers diverse high-capacity, low latency connectivity between enterprise sites, business centers and carrier hotels, the ZenFi network delivers the immense bandwidth required to support the Internet of Things and enable customers to reach more locations easily and affordably.

Contact ZenFi today to check network availability or to request fiber to your location or connectivity to another carrier hotel.
