Hudson Fiber Network (HFN) has announced that its latest “smart grid” projects in Clifton, Nutley and Carlstadt, New Jersey, are now live and now available to deliver dark and lit fiber connectivity services. The project includes:

Completion of “Smart Grid” built up or out with large-count fiber ring connecting five of New Jersey’s most active data centers in Clifton and Nutley, with a new “Smart” ring across four Carlstadt data centers in NJ.

  • New deployment enables customers or clients “Smart Grid” access to the full suite of HFN products, including national WAN footprint and NY/NJ metro fiber backbone.
  • These buildouts create a fully functional mileage insensitive cross-connect platform among data centers and commercial buildings that business and data center clients may leverage.
  • Deploying HFN’s fiber connectivity across the most active commercial and enterprise buildings along the Clifton/Nutley backbone, as well as a dozen buildings along the Carlstadt backbone.
  • The Carlstadt underground build eliminates risk of many of the heavily congested aerial poles in the area and delivers the region’s most secure connectivity services

“We applied our expertise building “Smart Grid” connectivity across Class A office buildings in Northern New Jersey, and expanded west to connect the fastest growing data centers and business communities in the state,” comments Keith Muller, COO, HFN. “Our approach to delivering network connectivity and highly reliable infrastructure in close proximity to leading colocation sites gives our customers the best in class global communications they require.”

With the completion of both rings and the expansion of its “Smart Grid” across the fastest growing areas in New Jersey, HFN reinforces its “Smart Grid” strategy and its position as the premier data transport provider for high-bandwidth, low-latency fiber networking solutions for local and global enterprises in the tri-state market.
