New York – June 15, 2011 - Sidera Networks, the premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, today announced that it will provide connectivity to the ancotel USA, LLC. colocation and data center in Westbury, New York, becoming the only provider capable of offering a direct path from Long Island to New Jersey, with the ability to bypass New York City via a unique crossing between Brooklyn and Staten Island. Sidera can also provide a direct path from the ancotel facility to New York City.
In 2010, Frankfurt-based ancotel purchased Long Island Data and Recovery Center’s (LIDARC) colocation and interconnection facility located in Westbury, New York. This facility offers direct interconnectivity to and between trans-Atlantic, Caribbean and Latin American submarine cable systems as well as leading nationwide and global network operators.
“Connecting to this strategically located facility further demonstrates our commitment to fully leverage our assets and extend our diverse, low-latency service offerings,” said Mike Sicoli, CEO of Sidera Networks. “Connecting ancotel to our state-of-the-art Xtreme Ultra-Low Latency Network, with ultra low-latency access to key financial exchanges, data centers and colocation facilities, creates a powerful combination designed to deliver a strategic advantage to our financial services and carrier clients.”
As a result of the acquisition of Long Island Fiber Exchange in 2010, Sidera is able to quickly and seamlessly connect to ancotel’s facility in Westbury, New York – bringing Sidera’s exclusive Xtreme Ultra-Low Latency Network to even more customers. The connection is expected to be completed in August of this year.
