ColoGuard to Provide Tenants with Ready Access to More Than 30 Networks
As lack of choice for connectivity options, including high-speed broadband, continues to be an issue across the country, businesses in one neighborhood in Brooklyn now have direct access to more than 30 network service providers.
Through the data center meet me room facility at ColoGuard, Brooklyn’s only data center and carrier hotel for network and enterprise customers, businesses at Industry City – the 6 million square-foot innovation economy hub where ColoGuard is based –now have access to an extensive range of network service providers that support both domestic and international connectivity.
The added capacity afforded by the new facility will make Industry City one of New York City’s densest and most viable network meet me points. Businesses will have access to internet speeds up to 100Gbps and a range of interconnection offerings, including colocation, hosting, data transport, dark fiber, cloud services, peering, and data storage.
Industry City, which recently installed new campus-wide fiber infrastructure, is WiredScore-certified Platinum, the highest available designation from the commercial real estate rating system for digital infrastructure.
“The density and variety of networks and services available to the tenants of the Industry City campus within the meet me room at ColoGuard is unparalleled -- our presence acts as a lynchpin for the entire Brooklyn waterfront from Williamsburg to Sunset Park,” said John Danko, Director of Business Development at ColoGuard. “Both Industry City and ColoGuard are committed to providing the highest level of service, and look forward to working with new and existing tenants.”
