1025Connect has announced a restructuring and re-focusing of company management and core values, inviting partners and customers to re-imagine what colocation and interconnectivity means for their business. The company, a New York-based, independent, carrier-neutral interconnection facility at the most central crossroads of transcontinental internet traffic systems in the region, is renowned for its ability to help customers and partners to connect global subsea systems to terrestrial networks, and is entering 2019 in a leading position.
To continue this success, 1025Connect enhances its focus on core differentiators: new management, connectivity, the Continental Edge, customers, partners and premier facility status. 1025Connect launched its revamp by welcoming a new management team consisting of dynamic leaders, including Frank Zachmann as executive director.
“We are constantly searching for ways to become better than we were yesterday. We want to bolster our success by realigning our business approach and zeroing in on what we know is important to us and our customers,” states Jeff Wasserman, president of 1025Connect. “We’re excited for our customers and partners to grow and flourish as a result of this new chapter in our company’s story.”
To underpin its connectivity options and augment existing facilities, 1025Connect has established itself as a hub for domestic and global data transport due to the unique networking attributes of Long Island, which feature extensive submarine cable systems (including the AC-1, AC-2, AEConnect and more) and a variety of Manhattan bypass fiber routes.
The company also functions as part of the Continental Edge, with the 1025Connect interconnection facility serving as the Easternmost peering point in the New York metro area connecting to Europe. 1025Connect’s renewed concentration on the Continental Edge will bolster the best-of-breed holistic communications solution’s ability to provide future-proof, direct access to multiple subsea cable systems connecting North America to Europe and South America.
Accessible from either side of the Atlantic, the Continental Edge leverages one of the most modern North Atlantic subsea cable system available today. 1025Connect has been selected as the closest interconnect point to its landing station due to its neutrality that provides access to a variety of terrestrial dark fiber and lit service networks at cost-effective rates.
The company aims to further leverage the most densely connected facility on Long Island and already boasts competitive pricing with no monthly cross-connect or interconnection fees. As part of developing the new 1025Connect, the premier facility is undergoing a transformative upgrade to allow for outstanding scalability to grow while providing reliable, around the clock supervision and remaining nimble with shorter-than-average project lead times.
The new 1025Connect is re-energizing its dedication to its customers by ensuring top tier critical infrastructure, fortified connectivity options and a superior digital experience for carriers, service providers, enterprise customers and partners alike. Operating as a revamped and refocused company, 1025Connect is poised to provide augmented services and support to ensure they remain in the place where business, connections and opportunities happen.
