Last week NEF Partner, AboveNet, announced it is “raising the bar” and expanding its data network in Chicago with new fiber optic “express routes” that will offer some of the lowest latency fiber routes between downtown Chicago and the western suburbs. The new network routes bypass more than 23 miles of existing fiber footprint surrounding the Chicago suburban areas, and are expected to provide the shortest data paths available between the city center and suburban business hubs.
With the new fiber optic routes, AboveNet customers, including data centers and their clientele, financial institutions and exchanges, will have access to one of Chicago’s fastest, high bandwidth connectivity solutions for their business-critical data communications. These new shorter routes are ideal for these enterprise and financial organizations requiring low latency connectivity or considering data replication to facilities in the western suburbs.
The new AboveNet routes are expected to be completed by mid-year 2011, and NEF has special access to AboveNet pricing and service. Talk with us about AboveNet network solutions today.
