NYI has announced that Lightower Fiber Networks, the premier provider of all-fiber, high-performance networking solutions delivered over its own network, has established an access point at NYI's Bridgewater, NJ, data center facility. NYI customers can now tap into expanded options across NYI's technology ecosystem and leverage Lightower's network services for robust and diverse connectivity solutions.

Located at 999 Frontier Road in Bridgewater, NJ, NYI's data center is less than 40 miles from Lower Manhattan and offers premier connectivity for trading platforms, backup processes and other latency-sensitive applications. The company offers a full suite of Internet infrastructure services extending from colocation to cloud. NYI's community of enterprise and net-centric customers is now just a cross-connect away from Lightower's all-fiber backbone. 

"Augmenting carrier diversity should be every colocation provider's goal," says Phil Koblence, chief operating officer for NYI. "Having Lightower build into our Bridgewater facility not only strengthens NYI's already-dense ecosystem of carriers and cloud providers, but also provides our customers strategic access to Lightower's dark fiber services." 

"Lightower is always looking for ways to further expand our network, especially in the New York Metro market," explains Jason Campbell, chief operations officer for Lightower Fiber Networks. "By establishing an all-fiber access point at NYI's Bridgewater facility, we continue to highlight our dedication to delivering market-leading networking solutions with customer friendly connectivity options."
