RCN Business broadens New Jersey data center reach via Cross River Fiber channel partnership

RCN Business is broadening its service area in the desirable New Jersey market through its partnership with dark fiber provider Cross River Fiber.

This latest arrangement builds upon the two companies' announced relationship in December where RCN Business set a two-part goal: expand the reach of its voice and data solutions to more customers, and provide access to major New Jersey data centers.

By establishing this relationship, RCN Business partner agents can sell Cross River Fiber's services to their New Jersey-based customers.

Specifically, RCN Business agents will be able to sell up to 10 Gbps Ethernet services and voice products, including next-generation Hosted Voice and Business Trunks, to companies over Cross River Fiber's network.

Additionally, RCN Business agent customers will be able to get access to a number of the key data centers in New Jersey, including facilities operated by Digital Realty, Savvis, Telx, IO, Net Access, Sentinel and Equinix. 

Having access to a broader footprint leveraging a partner fiber network is meaningful for RCN Business as it looks to grow its business customer base. A business customer that works with an RCN Business agent can now get access to a broader set of capabilities and more markets from one provider.
