Optical Communications Group (OCG) Adds Network Presence to Over 50 Buildings in Lower Manhattan



Providing New Fiber Optic Communications Services to the Area

GLENDALE, NY  – December 11, 2012 – Optical Communications Group (OCG), a privately-held fiber optic connectivity provider with network reach across New York's five boroughs and neighboring New Jersey shorelines, announces its services are now available in over 50 additional buildings in lower Manhattan. Presence into these buildings will add to OCG's existing network throughout the city. By providing new fiber optic local loops, OCG is able to reconnect networks back to their previous carrier as well as add new connections.

OCG has partnered with major carriers in the area to provide voice and Internet services to customers in need. As a fiber dense region, lower Manhattan experienced substantial damage during the recent events of Superstorm Sandy. New connection points are necessary to get networks with cables destroyed functioning on a normal level. OCG's network was not affected by the storm therefore the company is well positioned to support those networks without service.

"Our knowledge of the region and robust network allows us to facilitate the networks in Manhattan's most severely impacted," states Brad Ickes, President of OCG. "We were fortunate enough to retain our services throughout the storm and our network has the additional capacity to supplement and support those that are still trying to recover. OCG's added presence into these buildings ensures lower Manhattan is getting back on track."

With network routes that bypass Manhattan as well as direct routes into the city, OCG provides carriers with reliable and secure connectivity options. OCG's network offers redundancy and routes available for temporary connections that supplement primary routes without incurring substantial fees.
