Wolfe Picks Open Data Centers' Piscataway Facility in NJ as First POP in the Northeast

Seattle-based Wolfe will be leveraging the Open Data Centers’ (ODC) Piscataway facility in New Jersey as its first point of presence, or POP, in the Northeast part of the United States. The ODC facility is located 16 miles south of New York City.

General manager of Wolfe, Michael Scott said, “We are very excited to partner with Open Data Centers on this project. ODC can turn around cross connects in a matter of hours, and their one-time cross connect fee model is very favorable for carriers looking to expand their footprint. We have access to many other transport providers at our fingertips.”

The Piscataway POP will serve as an interconnection point, further augmenting Wolfe’s transport network. Wolfe will be joining other fiber providers, incumbent local exchange carriers, local exchange carriers, transport providers, ISPs and voice services providers who already use the Piscataway facility as their POP location.

As a provider of optimized Ethernet-based Internet and network VPN solutions, Wolfe enables customers to meet residential and business connectivity needs. Wolfe ensures very high speeds ranging from 10 Mb/s to 10 Gb/s, besides delivering a secure connection.

Wolfe also provides scalable, flexible solutions including Ethernet transport service, metro E, virtual private line service, IP VPN, and Wolfe Business Internet at competitive prices.

Erik Levitt, CEO of Open Data Centers, remarked, “Several ODC customers have already begun leveraging Wolfe’s strong presence. The partnership between ODC, Wolfe and other data center customers exemplifies the true benefits of carrier-neutral colocation, and we are proud to facilitate the relationships and interconnections between our carrier partners.”

The Open Data Centers provides well equipped PoP locations serving the needs of carriers providing low-latency colocation options for financial applications and cloud services. Open Data Centers is a carrier neutral, colocation provider in the region that offers alternative connectivity options for carriers, service providers and enterprises. Its N+1 redundancy on different infrastructure levels makes the facility cost-efficient, added officials.

During the recent hurricane catastrophe caused by Sandy, Open Data Centers data center facility in New Jersey continued to serve customers who did not experience any outages during the hurricane as power was restored quickly to their facility. The company’s data center facility ran on generator power throughout the event and did not face any interruptions in services as regular deliveries of fuel were provided.
