Summit, NJ - Cross River Fiber, a New Jersey-based, boutique dark fiber optic and telecommunications solutions provider, has completed its latest 40+ mile fiber optic buildout in Northern New Jersey. A strategic partnership with Hudson Fiber Network, the U.S.-based transport and IP services provider, enables both companies to offer a suite of Lit and Dark Fiber bandwidth solutions to end-users.

The Mahwah routes reduce latency by utilizing direct fiber interconnections to 300 Boulevard East in Weehawken, 755 Secaucus Road in Secaucus, 165 Halsey Street in Newark, and 1400 Federal Boulevard in Carteret. Cross River Fiber was responsible for the design and construction of the physical fiber optic route, while HFN developed and architected the optical lit platform on the route. This platform allows offerings for 10MB to 40G optical lit and passive transport services.

"Through our strategic partnership with HFN, Cross River Fiber is able to expand its footprint to Mahwah, adding more fiber route miles to our already expansive, owned fiber optic network," says Vincenzo Clemente , President and CEO of Cross River Fiber. "The Mahwah paths are critical to New Jersey and New York metro area financial institutions and enterprises. They deliver the lowest fiber latency connectivity available today, as well as optimal performance and critical redundancy to aid in the transport of climbing market data volume."
