365 Data Centers has added Crosslake Fibre as a customer and service provider at its Buffalo, New York, network-hub data centre.

The addition of Crosslake’s services provides new and existing 365 customers with connectivity from Buffalo to Toronto and Montreal in Canada, as well as additional network transport options to Chicago, Rochester, Ashburn and New York in the US.

"Buffalo is the second-largest city in New York and has a rapidly growing and evolving tech scene. We have extended our network here based on our customers' demand and the potential the city offers,” said Mike Cunningham, CEO of Crosslake Fibre.

“With 365 Data Centers, we have found the ideal partner and location to offer as an access ramp-on point to our international network. Companies wanting to interconnect with our portfolio of services can now do so with dark fibre, managed spectrum or optical capacity solutions."

365's Buffalo data centre is in the city's telecoms hub, where customers can choose from more than 20 different carriers to access worldwide networks.

Additionally, Crosslake's cable system provides backbone internet infrastructure that benefits wholesale carriers, cloud service providers and enterprises that run high-performance based platforms.

"Crosslake Fibre's decision to collocate its subsea cable termination from Canada to our Buffalo data centre expands 365's network service offerings  to existing customers and allows us to continue to accommodate requests for high density fibre services," said Bob DeSantis, CEO of 365 Data Centers.

"This addition will bring more network traffic into Buffalo, which can then be interconnected to the networks of 365 and the approximately 30 other US and international service providers housed at the data centre. Crosslake Fibre presence in Buffalo also allows 365 to accommodate higher bandwidth requests at more competitive prices."

In related news, Crosslake Fibre has confirmed plans to build a new subsea cable called CrossChannel Fibre.

The next-gen, 550km fibre-optic subsea system is the first to be built across the English Channel in almost twenty years connecting Slough, UK and Paris, France.
