Crosslake Starts Up Toronto – New York Fibre-Optic Link

Crosslake Fibre’s fibre-optic cable between Toronto and New York has entered commercial service.

The route connects Toronto’s largest carrier hotels, Equinix TR2 at 45 Parliament Street and 151 Front Street West, to Equinix NY4 in Secaucus, New Jersey with multiple extensions to various points-of-presence in both cities. Crosslake Fibre provides lit and dark fiber services interconnecting Toronto, Secaucus, NJ and Buffalo, NY using the route.

The cable traverses Lake Ontario from Toronto to New York State utilizing a specialized 192 fiber strand submarine cable that is 58 kilometers in length. Using current technology, the cable, which is less than 2 inches in diameter, can provide up to several thousand terabits per second of capacity throughput.

The new network provides the lowest latency performance, physical geographic diversity, and ultra-high capacity throughput for customers,” states Mike Cunningham, CEO of Crosslake Fibre. “This backbone Internet infrastructure benefits the financial markets, data centers, content delivery networks, the gaming eco-system, payment processing, and Internet download speeds, in addition to being a catalyst for economic development.”

The physical distance between the major business and financial markets in New York, New Jersey and Toronto just got shorter,” states Fergus Innes, SVP of Crosslake Fibre. “For the first time, this new network route delivers sub 9ms RTD performance between these core markets. Crosslake’s ‘Velocity’ service portfolio offers the financial community a number of options to enhance their connectivity to these important markets.”

Crosslake Fibre is backed by middle-market private equity firm Tiger Infrastructure Partners.
