Sidera Links CoreSite Data Centers with Low Latency Fiber

Sidera Networks is providing connectivity between CoreSite data centers in Chicago, Boston, New York, Washington, DC, and Reston, Virginia. Sidera's fiber network leverages unique rights-of-way between the major metropolitan areas from Maine to Virginia and out to Chicago, as well as access to Toronto and London. Sidera's facilities-based services include Ethernet, SONET, wavelength, dark fiber, and internet access.

The companies note that this arrangement gives CoreSite customers immediate access to over 40 financial exchanges and the Sidera Xtreme Ultra-Low Latency Network, which was specifically designed for applications demanding the lowest latency and highest performance.

Additionally, as a result of the expansion into additional CoreSite data centers, Sidera will extend peering on CoreSite's Any2 exchange, the nation's second largest peering exchange. Sidera also will be able to provide seamless access to CoreSite's Open Internet Exchange, an aggregation hub that gives expanded peering and interconnection opportunities to CoreSite customers.
