Stealth Communications Builds Out Fiber Network at NYC Carrier Hotel

By David Delony

Netrality Properties has announced that Stealth Communications completed the build out of its new fiber network at Netrality’s 325 Hudson Street property in New York City.

The facility hosts a “Meet Me Room” and carrier hotel where ISPs can connect to share traffic.

“Bringing in over 3000 strands of new dark fiber in to the Netrality Meet Me Room at 325 Hudson Street is a bold statement and indication of the many positive things to come,” Netrality chief strategy advisor Hunter Newby said.

The network uses fiber-optics and photonics to cover most of the business districts in Manhattan with gigabit Internet services at what it says are competitive prices.

“We are excited to finally have our own fiber asset installed and operational, providing us full control of our service offerings and cost. A crucial element to our fiber buildout was locating a type of home that understands our business and supports our mission to service the City’s businesses,” Stealth Communications president and CEO Shrihari Pandit said. “Naturally, 325 Hudson is the place to be.”

Carrier hotels, also known as colocation centers, like the one Netrality operates are what make the Internet the Internet. They simply let carriers interconnect with one another, taking the place of the old backbones like the one the National Science Foundation operated in the late 1980 to the early 1990s.

The “Meet Me Room” is where the carriers actually physically connect to each other.

Netrality’s facility doesn’t charge the networks for interconnecting to each other. Large providers will typically use several such facilities for redundancy in case something happens to one center. These carrier hotels add even more redundancy to an already robust network.

The New York facility has access to an undersea transatlantic connection.

Netrality operates other facilities in Chicago, Houston, Kansas City, Missouri and Philadelphia.
