Meet Me at 325 Hudson, Wirelessly

By Peter B. Counter

Meet Me Rooms (MMR) are areas of necessity. Neutral spaces that allow for connections between various carriers of voice, data and Internet protocol without incurring the normally associated fees. The big name in Meet Me Rooms has so far been Cologix, a company with more than 550 carrier, managed services, cloud, media, content, financial services and enterprise customers that it both serves and offers up as service though connectability solutions.

Recently though, 325 Hudson Street in New York has joined in to provide this sanctified-ground style connection service. It works the same way in concept to the MMRs that have come before it, only with one very big innovation. Partnering with NeXXCom, 325 Hudson is home to the first managed wireless Meet Me Room.

Located in the strategically important Hudson Street corridor, an area jam packed with fiber, 325 Hudson also has direct connections to subsea cables and metropolitan and regional networks. The new Meet Me Room will take up space on the roof of the carrier-neutral hotel in order to offer services to allow for financial exchanges, disaster recovery and the much-dreaded mobile backhaul that’s been crunching servers.

The New York wireless Meet Me Room is not only state of the art, but it also bears some serious responsibility. The service needs to be reliable and fast. That’s where NeXXCom comes in. According to joint venture partner at 325 Hudson Street, Hunter Newby, the partnership “further exemplifies [325 Hudson’s] commitment to provide our customers with cutting-edge, state-of-the-art services."

NeXXCom seems to be the perfect pick for this task. Offering point-to-point network solutions for clients requiring similar solutions to this one, the wireless provider has claimed to serve a demand for speeds nearing that of light (which still holds the record for fastest thing in the known universe). The latencies that NeXXCom can provide are superior to traditional fiber networks.

In the end, what customers get is an ultra-broadband, low-latency service that enhances connectivity to transatlantic cables, New Jersey data centers, and long haul and wireless networks to Chicago. Sal Benti, chairman of NeXXCom says it all: "The wireless Meet Me Room will offer the state of the art in wireless capabilities from technology to planning to provide customers with a tailored solution to suit each user's specific needs."
