Subscribe to our newsletter

Global InterXchange, LLC (GIX) has launched the first privately owned, carrier-neutral dark fibre route across the Hudson River in two decades. The new high-speed network connects Digital Realty’s JFK12 data centre at 60 Hudson Street in Manhattan with Equinix’s NY1 at 165 Halsey Street in New Jersey, utilising advanced fibre technologies and equipment that offer lower latency and increased network diversity. The project is a result of a public-private partnership with the Port Authority of NY and NJ.

The GIX dark fibre route features two unique paths into 60 Hudson Street and utilises Prysmian fibre cable with Corning SMF-28 Ultra glass, providing significant network resilience and boosting efficiency for financial, telecom, and colocation facilities. Future plans include expanding into additional tunnels, continuing GIX’s commitment to innovative, high-speed connectivity solutions for various industries, including global carriers, AI companies, and financial institutions.

PATH Project Manager Paul Lombardi commented: “Data has become a critical aspect of business and trade in this age of AI, with growing volumes of data driving the need for seamless transport of that data. This work ensures we can support the modernisation of critical infrastructure to support current and future digital requirements and attract cutting-edge businesses.”
