Online ordering platform offers self-service, automated metro connectivity

When ordering dark fiber or lit services several key factors come to mind – fast delivery, competitive pricing, rapid development, and of course, no-term contracts. Cross River Fiber and ZenFi have entered a partnership to do just that. Through their new ordering platform, zXc (ZenCross Connect), there is no need for you to look any further when it comes to ordering bandwidth. zXc ,is a self-service platform enabling automated purchase and configuration of interbuilding and interstate network cross-connects.Screen Shot 2017-01-09 at 1.15.59 PM

Leveraging a robust fiber-optic network, zXc offers a streamlined portal for ordering bandwidth between 28 major data centers and colocation facilities in the New York/New Jersey metro area, making interconnections simple and easy to procure. Through the zXc platform, ZenFi and Cross River Fiber provide pre-provisioned, on-demand dark fiber and 1GB / 10GB lit services.

“We really wanted to create a simple tool that would eliminate the cumbersome process that exists today when ordering bandwidth. We believe zXc changes that process,” comments Vincenzo Clemente, CEO of Cross River Fiber.

Customers are guided through a series of simple, online ordering steps through which they identify the route, select products, agree to the terms and conditions and, if they want, pay the initial invoice — all through one website. Orders are for month-to-month service and configurations can be completed within minutes with uncomplicated point-and-click location features.  Services are delivered within 15 days.

“Companies want to be able to order a circuit from point A to point Z immediately, automatically and on-demand,” notes Ray LaChance, President and CEO of ZenFi.  “Realizing that the marketplace wants faster delivery, ease of ordering and competitive pricing, we’ve created this platform.”

ZenFi and Cross River Fiber launched zXc last week at the Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC).  Over the next two years, the network and coverage areas for zXc will continue to grow to meet the demands of customers and expand capacity to carry the growing traffic load.
