zColo, the colocation division of global Bandwidth Infrastructure provider Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), has signed a long-term agreement with DE-CIX North America Inc. to support the launch of its U.S. interconnection business model in the New York/New Jersey market.

zColo will provide the infrastructure for DE-CIX New York’s access points at 111 8th Ave. and 60 Hudson St. facilities in New York, as well as connectivity to the DE-CIX infrastructure at 165 Halsey St. in Newark, NJ. zColo enables access to 103 points of presence in these buildings and connectivity options to over 800 customers through its dense fiber riser system.

DE-CIX New York supports settlement-free interconnection between Internet providers and uses Zayo’s metro interconnect fiber for its backbone between both locations and 165 Halsey, creating a scalable infrastructure for DE-CIX participants. Having access points in these facilities also enables DE-CIX access to Zayo’s 510-route mile metro fiber network in New York/New Jersey. zColo will provide space, power and connectivity solutions to DE-CIX participants seeking to colocate at DE-CIX New York.

“DE-CIX New York is delivering a peering ecosystem that provides the world’s largest ISPs, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), service providers and web hosters with the most advanced interconnection options available,” explains Frank Orlowski, chief marketing officer for DE-CIX. “To deliver this, we require first-class interconnection facilities and an extensive fiber-optic infrastructure that allows our customers to easily connect from anywhere in the NY/NJ metro. zColo and Zayo deliver this for us, with a high level of service and availability.”

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
