The financial vertical continues to drive more direct metro routes in the New York metro area, and particularly in northern New Jersey. Today Hibernia Atlantic announced a key new low latency route between two of the main hubs, with the help of boutique metro fiber builder Cross River Fiber and the vendor Vello Systems.
The new route hooks up 156 Halsey in Newark with 1400 Federal Blvd in Carteret, the general route of which is depicted via a Google Map to the left. Hibernia is using it to offer 10G lit services with an SLA of 239µs RTD. That will give them a leg up in the financial vertical.
This is the sort of highly optimized route that Cross River likes to build. They're also working on routes to Mahwah of course according to another announcement this week. For its part, Vello specializes in ultra-low latency gear for 10G+ systems. I'm not too familiar with them yet, I'll have to read up. The combination of Hibernia, Cross River, and Vello seems like a natural one. I wonder what other projects they might have in mind.
