Cleareon has announced that it has acquired significant data center assets in and around the New York City (NYC) metropolitan area. These data center assets position Cleareon to take advantage of densification opportunities in the NYC tri-state area to provide hoteling space and "front-haul" support for DAS, small cell and other wireless systems, as well as 5G-enabled applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data transport and cloud access.

"These assets serve to complement Cleareon's existing dark fiber and lit services portfolio by positioning the company at the 'intelligent edge' of networking technology and service deployment," comments Cliff Kane, co-CEO at Cleareon. "We're building fiber networks from these data centers directly to enterprise buildings so that our customers have robust and fluid layer 1, layer 2 and IP-based services across our network. We're doing this while readying NYC for 5G, IoT and other promising wireless-enabled applications."

"Carriers that lease or operate wireline, wireless or subsea cable assets can increase their own revenues and expand their customer base with a physical point of presence at a Cleareon data center," added Kevin Rocks, executive vice president, sales & marketing, Cleareon. "We offer flexible terms and access to customers at an additional 30 data center points of presence through our PANMetro Ethernet Ring platform. This enables carriers to directly market their own products and services to hundreds of new enterprise customers from a single location."

The acquisitions also enable Cleareon to expand its cloud networking options to include a set of hybrid solutions across cloud, multi-cloud, colocation and bare metal, all provided via SSAE16 / SOC1&2 / PCI / HIPAA / HITECH compliant facilities throughout NYC.
