DataVerge, the owner and operator of Brooklyn’s only carrier-neutral interconnection facility, has signed a new 20-year lease at Industry City, the largest interconnected business and technology campus in the United States. As its preferred connectivity partner, DataVerge provides businesses with fiber infrastructure, connectivity, colocation, and cloud services as well as direct access to dark fiber, metro, and long haul transport providers. All of these benefits serve the 500+ companies located on Industry City’s 35-acre campus and the region in general. This new lease assures these organizations that their technology needs will be there for the long haul, allowing them to focus on innovation, growth, and their core business activities.
“DataVerge’s carrier hotel and our high-speed cabling infrastructure are among the most critical amenities we offer, especially for tenants with multiple locations who want to share files seamlessly,” said Jeff Fein, Senior Vice President of Leasing at Industry City. “We’re pleased that DataVerge will continue to offer secure data services to our tenants and that we will maintain the critical tech infrastructure that is foundational to business today.”
“Our core mission is to deliver the best and broadest set of connectivity options to Brooklyn and Tri-State businesses,” said Ray Sidler, CEO and Cofounder of DataVerge. “By being the sole meeting point for connectivity in Industry City and carrier-neutral, our rich ecosystem of more than 30 carriers and network providers enables us to meet the needs of local business and the technology community.”
DataVerge utilizes more than five miles of fiber optic cable throughout Industry City’s 35 acres of repurposed industrial space, many of which are historic pre-War buildings, transforming the campus into an innovation hub. DataVerge continues to add fiber, including true redundant paths – for fast, uninterrupted connectivity throughout all 16 buildings that make up Industry City, which in total square footage is second only to the Pentagon, the world’s largest building.
