“We know that companies using connectivity between Ashburn data centers and New York data centers demand the highest levels of connectivity, reliability and performance,” said Phil Olivero, CTO at Lightpath.

Fiber-based connectivity provider Lightpath has announced the launch of a new regional long-haul route connecting Ashburn, Virginia, one of the world’s data center epicenters, to the New York Metro area. This 300-mile route is geographically diverse from current Lightpath routes between New York and Ashburn, VA. This would provide organizations with different route options for getting to and from the two cities.

Lightpath’s 19,000-mile network covers New York City, New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, so customers with end-point destinations in Ashburn, VA, may simply link back to anyplace on the network.

Along the route, Lightpath will provide various bandwidth choices up to 800 Gbps optical transmission. Customers may also link directly to key cloud providers in the Ashburn area, as well as vital area data centers, expanding their network strategy choices.

Connecting Ashburn and New York Data Centers

“Our new Ashburn route is extremely important to many of our customers who need reliable connectivity between these major technology centers,” said Phil Olivero, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Lightpath. “Offering a geographically diverse route between New York and Ashburn is a perfect complement to the routes we already offer between these regions.”

“We know that companies using connectivity between Ashburn data centers and New York data centers demand the highest levels of connectivity, reliability and performance,” added Mr. Olivero. “Combining this new route with our existing routes, all with our latest network technologies, is as good as it gets.”
