Cross River Fiber taps into the low latency trend with N.J. express route

Cross River Fiber, a dark fiber provider, is driving more of the low latency networking craze by providing what it claims to be the shortest route between 1400 Federal Boulevard in Carteret and 165 Halsey Street in Newark, N.J.

As the first completed route of the low latency dark fiber network it is building in New Jersey, Cross River Fiber will immediately appeal to the financial services industry, where milliseconds can mean the loss of thousands or millions of dollars in potential revenue.

The new 23.25 km network route connects to two carrier hotels focused on the financial segment.

In addition to the financial industry, Vincenzo Clemente, CEO of Cross River Fiber, said the new network route will appeal to "government, education and healthcare sectors throughout the State of New Jersey."

Other routes that are currently in the process of being built include network routes to other large data centers in New Jersey including Edison, Piscataway, Somerset, Secaucus, Weehawken, Nutley, Clifton, Rochelle Park, and various large business campuses.

While Cross River Fiber is still an up-and-coming service provider that's still in the process of building out its network footprint, it will likely find appeal with businesses that want private connections and service providers looking for alternative interconnection partners.
