Wolfe Selects Open Data Centers’ Piscataway Facility to Be Its First Northeast Point-of-Presence

Open Data Centers (ODC) announced today that Wolfe selected ODC's Piscataway, NJ facility to be its first POP in the Northeast. Wolfe serves several existing ODC customers, and is able to leverage ODC’s carrier-friendly operating environment in order to service its growing East coast customer base.

“We are very excited to partner with Open Data Centers on this project,” commented Michael Scott, General Manager of Wolfe. "ODC can turn around cross connects in a matter of hours, and their one-time cross connect fee model is very favorable for carriers looking to expand their footprint. We have access to many other transport providers at our fingertips."

Wolfe intends to use Piscataway as an interconnection point for its already substantial transport network, based predominantly in the Northwest, which began with the deployment of low-latency, high speed, transport facilities cross country. Wolfe joins a growing list of fiber providers, incumbent local exchange carriers, competitive local exchange carriers, transport providers, ISPs and voice services providers already present in the facility.

"Several ODC customers have already begun leveraging Wolfe’s strong presence," said Erik Levitt, CEO of Open Data Centers. "The partnership between ODC, Wolfe and other data center customers exemplifies the true benefits of carrier-neutral colocation, and we are proud to facilitate the relationships and interconnections between our carrier partners."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
