Fiber Connection to Your Enterprise Location
ZenFi (in NYC) and Cross River Fiber (in NJ) are specialists in building fiber to connect enterprise buildings to each other and to the zXc data center network. By utilizing the most advanced deployment techniques and fusion splicing technology their fiber networks are not plagued with added loss due to over-splicing or legacy splicing techniques. The outcome is optical networks providing the lowest possible dB loss in respect to fiber distance. Our comprehensive approach to service design and implementation concentrates on delivering a best in class network product capable of supporting applications from 1G optical all the way to 100G DWDM with up to 17.6 Tb of throughput. Post deployment, we ensure that customer maintenance and restoration events are resolved in a timely manner with as little customer impact as possible.
Passive/Dim Wave Service between Datacenters
Want to use dark fiber between any of the data centers on the zXc network, but the distance is too long without regeneration? We can provide passive/dim wave service to regenerate your WDM signal to enable you to connect between these data centers. By adding low-cost optics at your data center locations, we will enable you to use your own equipment to connect at 1 Gb or 10 Gb speeds. Our passive/dim wave service is available on a month-to-month basis.
Cloud Direct Connect
Through a partnership with Megaport, we provide direct connect services to all major cloud service providers including AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google’s cloud platform. Why use less reliable and less secure public Internet connections for your crucial cloud connections when you can use dedicated connections. Solutions are cost effective and deployed rapidly. Direct cloud connections are available on a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint basis with speeds up to 10 Gb and on a month-to-month basis.
Long Haul Transport Service
