AM Property Holding Corp. the owner and operator of 1025Connect, a 200,000 square-foot technology centre and colocation facility located in Westbury, New York has announced the expansion of Aqua Comms, the operator of subsea fibre-optic networks interconnecting the United States and Europe, within its facility to meet growing demand. The availability of Aqua Comms subsea connectivity solutions provides 1025Connect customer’s access to the North Atlantic Loop, a resilient dual-path network across the Atlantic.
1025Connect is a premier colocation interconnection facility on Long Island with more than 15 carriers and service providers available in the building, now including Aqua Comms’ North Atlantic Loop dual-path transAtlantic subsea cable system, along with Altice/Lightpath, CenturyLink, Crown Castle, DE-CIX Internet Exchange, Epsilon, OCG, RCN and Verizon. Situated at one of the most eastern points of the United States, 1025Connect delivers direct access to multiple submarine cable systems connecting North America, Europe and Latin America, with the ability to bypass Manhattan fiber routes for greater network redundancy and diversity.
“Aqua Comms expansion within 1025Connect is a boon for operators and businesses on Long Island who are looking for cost-effective, resilient and reliable infrastructure for their global communication requirements,” comments John Danko, Director of Business Development for 1025Connect. “Along with a number of other subsea cable systems, terrestrial networks and the world’s leading Internet exchange, having Aqua Comms now directly available at 1025Connect’s colocation facility, customers gain more control and access than ever before, offering a truly viable option for domestic and international companies seeking affordable and manageable connectivity solutions.”
“Our new location at 1025Connect reaffirms Aqua Comms’ commitment to the North Atlantic Loop,” adds Nigel Bayliff, CEO of Aqua Comms. “Our expanded capabilities within 1025Connect enables our customers the unique opportunity to take advantage of industry disruptive zero monthly cross connect fees as well as the opportunity to avoid Manhattan for access to our diverse transAtlantic capacity.”
