Sabey Data Center Properties has announced that ZenFi has signed a licensing agreement to support its expanding operations and provide dark fiber connectivity to existing and future tenants at Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s data center at 375 Pearl Street in lower Manhattan.
ZenFi will deliver a highly flexible and scalable fiber network to both enterprise and data center customers at Intergate.Manhattan. The ZenFi Access Network architecture was built to deliver distributed dark fiber connectivity between carrier hotels, enterprise buildings, light poles, and street structures — Any Pair. Anywhere™. The company’s latest installation at Sabey’s 375 Pearl Street facility was selected for its proximity to the vibrant commercial district of downtown Manhattan and the Lower East Side.
“We look forward to helping ZenFi realize its vision of connecting ‘any pair, anywhere’ with dark fiber connecting carrier hotels, office buildings, and on-street locations,” states John Sabey, president, Sabey Data Center Properties. “This strategic partnership will effectively empower the Internet of Things.”
To date, the fiber optic network carriers who have signed licensing agreements with Sabey at Intergate.Manhattan have included multiple providers offering redundant and diverse paths to and from the building. As per this licensing agreement with ZenFi, Sabey can now offer Intergate.Manhattan’s tenants dark fiber along with its full suite of facilities-based services, including lit transport, Ethernet, SONET, wavelength, IP services, Internet access, and carrier-neutral colocation and interconnection.
“One of ZenFi’s unique offerings is our ability to install pole-top DAS small cell, and carrier WiFi nodes on light poles, traffic poles, street signs, and other fiber-to-the-curb applications as part of our Mobile Telecom Franchise Agreement with the City of New York,” states Ray La Chance, ZenFi president and CEO. “The Intergate.Manhattan facility was an ideal hub to aggregate our Access Network that serves these pole-top applications. Tenants within Intergate.Manhattan can now leverage the ZenFi Network to connect anywhere in the City on a dedicated, dark fiber platform.”
