Zayo Deploys Low Latency Fiber Link -- NYC to Chicago

Zayo Bandwidth, a regional provider of fiber based bandwidth infrastructure, and a provider of carrier neutral colocation services, has deployed a low latency route between major carrier hotels in New York and Chicago.

The route was developed to support algorithmic trading requirements for financial and carrier customers. Zayo said its network not only provides low latency transmission capabilities, but also physical path diversity from other common carrier long-haul backbone routes.

This unique regional route enables global banks, financial/commodity exchanges, market data providers, hedge funds and other market participants to deliver market data and execute orders from locations within New York and Chicago including: 111 N Canal St. and 350 East Cermak Rd., both in Chicago to 165 Halsey in New Jersey, and 111 8th Ave. and 60 Hudson St., both located in New York. Zayo's sister company, Zayo Colocation Services (zColo) is the exclusive manager and operator of the 60 Hudson St. Meet-Me-Room in New York City, one of the world's largest interconnect exchanges.
