More and more carrier clients are discovering the benefits of TELEHOUSE’s Chelsea Center data center – the latest on the list being Optical Communications Group (OCG), a facilities-based provider of technologically advanced, high bandwidth fiber optic transmission capacity for communications carriers.  Situated at 85 10th Avenue in Manhattan, TELEHOUSE Chelsea Center carriers find that the state-of-the-art facility offers high capacity, reliable and high performance network services with low cross connect fees, among several other benefits. 

Expanding its fiber network into the new TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea data center facility, OCG presently operates networks in Long Island, New Jersey, and New York City’s five boroughs, comprised of nearly 500 miles of fiber, nearly one hundred percent of which is underground. In addition to its new tenancy at TELEHOUSE Chelsea Center, OCG has been located at TELEHOUSE’s flagship facility, 7 Teleport Drive in Staten Island, since 2006. 

“OCG prides itself on its ability to provide customers with low-cost, secure, quality solutions for all fiber transport needs,” states Brad Ickes, President of Optical Communications Group. “Colocating at TELEHOUSE’s newest data center here in New York more than aligns with these goals, and further enables us to exceptionally service our wide range of customers including enterprises, voice/data carriers, and government via a redundant, secure network.” 

“We are proud to have OCG, a current network provider as one of TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea’s newest tenants,” comments Noriyuki Kita, Executive Vice President for TELEHOUSE America. “As the company continues its stellar growth pattern, we are honored to have OCG here at TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea, which provides increased options for high-performance, high speed connectivity, and much more.”
