Canadian cable project specialists Crosslake Fibre have announced that they will be building a submarine fibre optic cable from Wall, New Jersey to Long Island, New York.

The cable will connect New Jersey and New York directly through the use of a 95km high fibre count submarine cable, providing a low latency route between the two regions.

“The need for a Manhattan bypass route is growing more critical with increased network congestion and weather-related threats in the region,” states Mike Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer of Crosslake Fibre.

“As additional transoceanic cables carrying much of the world’s Internet traffic land in the region, and growth on existing cables continues, new domestic connectivity onward from the Cable Landing Stations is important.”

The end points for the system are located at NJFX Cable in Wall, New Jersey and 1025Connect in Westbury, Long Island.

“The Crosslake Fibre subsea cable further adds to that ecosystem and brings a unique connectivity option for international and US carriers located here,” said Gil Santaliz, Chief Executive Officer of NJFX.

“Introducing the new Crosslake Fibre system adds another strategic option on the ‘Continental Edge’ and strengthens our position as the easternmost peering point in the metro area providing a truly diverse, subsea Manhattan Bypass route for customers,” said Dan Lunde, Managing Director of 1025Connect.

The US project follows on from Crosslake’s current Lake Ontario build that is progressing, with the company renowned for their niche submarine cable system development.

Once complete, Crosslake will both operate and manage the system independently.
