The CEO of Crosslake Fibre, Mike Cunningham, recently met up with Jaymie Scotto Cutaia at PTC ’18, and shared the company’s latest developments. Focusing on unique subsea cable projects and next-gen networks, Crosslake Fibre, constructs high fiber count cable systems for the purposes of offering dark fiber to the marketplace.
With existing cable systems approaching two decades in use, Crosslake Fibre is meeting increased demand from enterprises, telecoms and OTTs for low latency, physically diverse and reliable routes. Crosslake’s Toronto, Canada to Buffalo, NY route is the first submarine cable connecting Canada and the US through Lake Ontario. Over the next few weeks, Crosslake Fibre will announce cable suppliers and other key milestones for this route, which will go to service mid 2018.
WALL-LI: Late last year, the company announced a new 95 km subsea cable system extending from the 1025Connect facility in Long Island, New York to NJFX’s Tier 3 colocation facility in Wall, New Jersey. Offering a physically diverse route, the ‘Wall-LI’ cable, as its known, has a targeted ready-for-service date of June 2019.
