Fiber optic network and network edge colocation provider, ZenFi Networks, has upgraded and expanded their network capabilities in the New York and New Jersey metro regions. ZenFi Networks has partnered exclusively with U.S. network IT services company Integration Partners to consult, design, upgrade, and manage their network.
Integration Partners’ value proposition is to bring a multi-vendor, “best of breed” network technologies environment together. The company claims to understand the interdependencies of the network and the recognized customer business value it brings. Their solution consists of technologies from Juniper Networks, Ciena, Palo Alto Networks, Arista Networks and Integration Partners Managed Services.
With this partnership in place, ZenFi Networks expands their offerings by coupling its highly dense and adaptable connectivity solutions with Integration Partners’ managed services offerings to provide customers a fully managed service.
“ZenFi Networks’ growth is contributed in large part by expanding our ecosystem with partnerships built on excellence and offering innovative solutions that are continually evolving,” said Walter Cannon, VP of Business Development at ZenFi Networks. “This collaborative approach leads to technological advancements in expanded and holistic capabilities for our customers. To be able to provide fully managed, high capacity services is a win-win. Many of our financial services and healthcare customers are now requesting 100G & 400G connections. As the demands increase, we expect to see continued growth in these high capacity lit services.”
Cloud First Strategies
Working as one team, ZenFi and Integration Partners engineers will monitor, manage and troubleshoot the lit services network 24x7x365. This technical partnership, designed to exceed customer satisfaction and service level objectives, will proactively seek out and remediate issues.
“The ZenFi Networks partnership brings their customers the tailor-made solutions they are looking for and delivers them as a service that their business demands,” said Bart Graf, Principal and co-founder of Integration Partners. “Bringing best of breed technology with a leading service provider is enabling the cloud first strategies that businesses need.”
With over 1,100 route miles of fiber in the New York and New Jersey metro region, and increased network edge colocation facilities, this alliance would bring technologies from 1G to 400G transport and expand connectivity solutions to the market utilizing technologies like WiFi 6 and CBRS.
