AboveNet establishes connection on Neutral Tandem's Ethernet network

AboveNet (NYSE: ABVT) is fanning out the reach of its Ethernet services footprint by establishing a connection in Neutral Tandem's Ethernet exchange.

By establishing its first connection in Neutral Tandem's New York City-based 75 Broad St. location, Michael Brown, Vice President, Carrier Sales at AboveNet, said that it will be able "to provide Neutral Tandem customers with immediate access to our portfolio of Ethernet connectivity services and extensive fiber optic footprint in the top metro markets."

The latest move to establish a connection with Neutral Tandem complements AboveNet's ongoing fiber network footprint expansion efforts.

And while AboveNet will likely continue to deliver Ethernet services directly to its own customers and work with other carriers to establish necessary External-Network to Network Interconnections (E-NNI) with other carrier partners, having a connection into Neutral Tandem's exchange will ensure it has connections into more buildings its multi-site customers need.
