Following the announcement of its strategic partnership with NYI earlier this year, 1025Connect has completed its relaunch as Long Island Interconnect, delivering enhanced interconnection and infrastructure solutions.
WESTBURY, NY – November 09, 2022 —1025Connect, the premier, carrier-neutral interconnection facility on Long Island, is excited to announce that it has rebranded as Long Island Interconnect to support an enhanced mission to become a full-service global interconnection hub. In addition to serving domestic carriers and international subsea cable providers, the company now supports a broad range of cross-industry clients with edge, cloud and IoT needs who benefit from low-latency connectivity options, flexible infrastructure solutions and high-touch managed services.
The announcement comes on the heels of significant updates that have taken place this year and additional upgrades that are on the horizon for the first half of 2023. Growth over the last year has taken the form of new customers, additional network buildout, and new strategic partnerships. Substantial infrastructure upgrades have also been made, leading to greater capacity and efficiency for colocation customers. Additional updates to the design and usability of the site are also underway and will lead to an enhanced customer experience for those visiting the facility.
“We are thrilled to relaunch as Long Island Interconnect to reflect our growth and expanding mission,” says Henry Bergmann, Managing Member. “Our goal is to become a full-service interconnection hub on the East Coast — going beyond a place where networks meet, to one where enterprise clients can access not only exceptional connectivity options but a range of infrastructure solutions and managed service capabilities to help them navigate today’s increasingly complex digital landscape.”
The partnership with NYI was instrumental in both defining the rebranding effort and in expanding Long Island Interconnect’s portfolio of offerings.
“Long Island Interconnect is enabling the enablers of connectivity,” adds NYI’s COO Phillip Koblence, “and by doing so, they are supporting a broad set of industries who rely on seamless connectivity such as finance, gaming, media, and education. Long Island Interconnect is also transitioning from being a commodity provider to a solutions facilitator, committed to solving challenges for clients with custom infrastructure requirements who are looking for personalized service in a market dominated by large, often inflexible, players.”
Over the next few months, Long Island Interconnect will be enhancing its Partner Program and further expanding its ecosystem to provide clients with additional service options.
