United Fiber & Data (UFD) is making headlines again! The company announced today that a global hyperscaler has chosen UFD for fiber-optic connectivity between two of its major U.S. carrier hotels in Manhattan and New Jersey.
UFD tailor-made a dark fiber solution for this customer’s network design, which includes 12 pairs/24 fiber strands total. The secured route provides the global company with expanded high-capacity options for Big Data transit.
“The security, diversity and scalability of our newly constructed low latency network with easy access to key U.S. carrier hotels has brought this major global customer to UFD for reliable, leading-edge data communications,” said Bill Hynes, Founder and CEO of United Fiber & Data. “Our wholly owned and operated greenfield network with all-new fiber allows modern companies to leverage a secure, high-capacity pathway to accommodate exponential data growth.”
This news in the second major announcement in as many months. In May, UFD announced that its highly anticipated fiber-optic network connecting New York City to Ashburn, Virginia, was completed. The company’s wholly-owned and operated purpose-built, greenfield network connects UFD’s 60-mile-plus metro fiber-optic network in New York City to Ashburn, via a 340-mile physically diverse long-haul route.
