YORK, Pa. — United Fiber & Data (UFD) has been selected by a global data center and colocation provider for fiber-optic connectivity.

UFD’s dark fiber solution for this customer includes 25 pairs/50 fiber strands total. Through this UFD solution, the customer will receive additional high-performance connectivity that will link a Manhattan-based data center to the customer’s major facility in Secaucus, New Jersey, while simultaneously connecting the Manhattan data center to a Newark, New Jersey-based data center.

The solution leverages UFD’s wholly owned and operated, greenfield-built, low-latency network that connects the company’s 60-mile-plus metro fiber-optic network in New York City, with more than 330 buildings on net, to Ashburn, Virginia, via its 340-mile geographically diverse long-haul route. UFD’s dark fiber network offers substantial levels of bandwidth, a higher level of security, and scalability.

 “UFD’s high fiber count footprint in NYC and our diverse long-haul route to Ashburn, Virginia, enable us to be one of the few providers that can offer major global customers access to a reliable, leading-edge communications network,” said Bill Hynes, founder and CEO of UFD. “Our high-capacity fiber network solution is well-positioned to enable our customers to meet the demands of today’s changing telecommunications landscape.”
