Hudson Fiber Network (HFN), a premier US-based transport and IP services provider, today announced its partnership with Cross River Fiber for a new ultra-low latency route between 755 Secaucus Road in Secaucus, NJ and 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, NJ.
As the fastest fiber path between these two locations, this new route will provide the lowest latency connectivity available today to customers trading via exchanges colocated at these sites.
The strategic alliance between Hudson Fiber Network and Cross River Fiber provides both companies with exclusivity in selling this new route.
"Customers are not only seeking connectivity to the primary exchanges, but they also require the necessary infrastructure support to deliver increasing data volumes at the lowest latencies possible. This route provides them with a clear, competitive advantage" said Brett Diamond, President, Hudson Fiber Network.
This new path will provide customers with the flexibility to select from dark fiber, lit services and passive wavelength services.
"Speed is paramount in the financial services industry," adds Vincenzo Clemente, CEO, Cross River Fiber. "Because we were looking to build the fastest route between these two locations today, we wanted to work with a trusted leader in delivering ultra-low latency connectivity. This qualifies Hudson Fiber Network as the partner of choice on this route, and the other ones we are deploying with them."
The path will be launched in Q4 2012.
