Optical Communications Group Connects "Manhattan Bypass" Route to Europe to DuPont Fabros Technology’s NJ1 Data Center

By admin, June 27, 2012 2:04 pm

At the Telecom Exchange Press Room, Optical Communications Group, announced the commencement of the Manhattan Bypass” network at the DuPont Fabros Technology’s NJ1 data center. The privately held fiber optic connectivity provider was quick to highlight the uniqueness of the route from New Jersey to Europe?and how being located at Piscataway, NJ1, ?has become one of the most efficient data centers available in the Greater Metro New York Area.

“Our OCG route travels through New Jersey straight to Europe, avoiding the traditional and congested connection points within Manhattan,” states Brad Ickes, president of OCG. “With this diversity, NJ1 customers have added redundancy and security for their critical networks. This flexibility allows for primary network maintenance and cost effective bandwidth bursts.”

“Carriers continue to build their fiber networks to NJ1,” states Vinay Nagpal, director of Carrier Relations for DuPont Fabros Technology. “With over a dozen carriers operational at NJ1, we offer optimal connectivity options to several major financial centers including Mahwah, Carteret, Chicago, and now to European markets.”

OCG’s “Manhattan Bypass” has been designed to avoid the overcrowded routes in Manhattan by linking through the landing stations in Long Island. From NJ1, the unique path travels to Long Island via Staten Island and Brooklyn. casino online . Once it ends up at Long Island, the network connects to three transatlantic cables: AC-2/Yellow, Apollo and AC-1, which ensure low latency connectivity to Europe for enterprise and financial customers pursuing variety in the region.

Apart from the route to Europe, OCG is delivering diversity from NJ1 to Manhattan through an alternative network ring. The alternate New Jersey to Manhattan cable travels from NJ1 to Manhattan via Staten Island and Brooklyn and the network diversity provides redundancy for clients in the event of a power failure in Manhattan. Additionally, the route is obtainable for temporary connections to increase primary routes without earning substantial fees. The routes are available for customized periods of time, and availability is seldom an issue.

Fibertech’s Diverse Fiber Optic Network Enters New Jersey

By admin, May 2, 2012 10:05 am

With demands of both carrier and enterprise customers increasing rapidly, a greater interest in redundant and diverse network connections has emerged, and Fibertech is seizing this opportunity to complete integration of its diverse fiber optic connection into DuPont Fabros Technology’s (DFT) New Jersey data center.

Committed to bringing fiber connectivity directly into NJ1, Fibertech’s alliance with DFT is expected to ensure that customers in this area have access to the company’s high-speed connectivity and low latency solutions.

“Fibertech’s unique footprint and ability to provide alternative connectivity for growing networks, makes it an ideal competitive provider for new and existing tenants looking for metro fiber connectivity within our NJ1 data center,” Vinay Nagpal, director of carrier relations at DFT, said in a press release.

DFT is a real investment trust that manages wholesale data centers and NJ1, which caters to the Greater Metro New York Area, is regarded as one of the largest, most sophisticated and most efficient data centers.

The Company’s data centers are highly specialized, secure with network-neutral facilities that are used primarily by national and international Internet and enterprise companies to house their servers that support critical business processes.

Mike Hurley, VP of sales and marketing at Fibertech, said the company would provide more than 100 miles of fiber throughout New Jersey as well as dark fiber connectivity for unlimited bandwidth.

This is expected to benefit not only DFT’s carrier and enterprise customers, but some major east coast metropolitan areas as well.

Other news reports Fibertech completed its IPv6 network implementation for its entire 8,000-mile+ fiber optic footprint. After a year-long process of designing, testing and implementation, Fibertech is operational in both IPv4 and IPv6, and is already providing IPv6 address space to select customers to trial.

Cable laying complete at Sheringham Shoal

Monday, Mar 26, 2012

The installation of the strings of cables connecting the wind turbines to the offshore substations at the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm is now complete.

A total of 56 kilometres of cables – known as infield cables – have been installed by contractor Visser & Smit using the 86m vessel Team Oman, which has been working on and off at the wind farm site in the Greater Wash for 18 months. As core com- ponents, Hadoop MapReduce and HDFS are constantly being improved and 122 Part III: Big best-data-recovery.com Management provide great starting points, but you need something more.. The vessel is now en route to Sunderland for demobilisation before moving on to her next job.

The wind farm, operated by Scira Offshore Energy, has 36 of its 88 turbines in place and is scheduled for completion in late summer 2012.

Project Director Rune Rønvik said every milestone is a culmination of much planning, coordination and effort and the teams involved in the cable construction and installation are rightly pleased to have completed this important stage in the wind farm’s progress.

“Working on 24-hour rotations, around 50 personnel have been involved in the cable casino online/a> installation which is a significant effort and one to be congratulated,” he added.

Although all the infield cables have been laid, Visser & Smit has one final task, which is to trench the cable into the seabed to ensure it is protected from fishing gear, vessel anchors and other potential hazards.

The 87m Toisa Warrior will continue to out the cable burial work, with completion expected to be by this summer.

The wind farm project is owned equally by Statoil and Statkraft through joint venture company Scira Offshore Energy Limited. Statoil is the project manager during construction, while Scira will be responsible for the long-term operations and maintenance.
