Lightpath is giving its business customers more connectivity options by establishing a point of presence at 325 Hudson Street in New York City.
This new POP is all about enhancing options for its own customers as well as potential customers that need access into buildings and facilities that Lightpath serves in New York and New Jersey.
What makes Lightpath an attractive tenant for the 325 Hudson Street facility is the density of the service provider's network.
Lightpath has a network that connects into 7,000 lit buildings in the New York metro area with over 5,800 route miles.
Having a large density of on-net fiber enabled buildings means that a business customer that needs connectivity into other locations in the New York metro area, including New Jersey, can tap into Lightpath from the 325 Hudson Street POP.
Lightpath has continued to grow its customer base. The service provider recently won deals to provide fiber-based connectivity to over 65 New Jersey schools through participation in the state's Department of Education initiative, the Digital Readiness for Learning and Assessment Project (DRLAP).
Fiber-based services are just one element of Lightpath's growth pattern. The service provider has also been growing its presence in the hosted voice market segment. Earlier this year, Lightpath won an agreement to implement a 1,000-seat cloud-based voice system for Sarah Lawrence College in Westchester County, New York.
