New York City interconnectivity

Transit Wireless keeps New York City connected via its 160-mile, carrier grade, 864-strand count fiber optic network that links to five strategically-located Transit Wireless Base Station Hotels (BSH) across the five boroughs. Through our fiber network, we can deliver multiple connectivity options for current and future communications needs.

These options include:

  • Carrier grade, high-speed Ethernet
  • Internet connectivity
  • Wavelength (Wave Division Multiplexing) transport for applications that demand high bandwidth
  • Dark fiber services
  • Critical fiber applications
  • Data colocation
  • Network operations

Ethernet services

Fiber optic Ethernet services are the gold standard for reliable, high performance connectivity. Ethernet is an especially robust solution for large bandwidth needs such as the secure transfer of data and images for multi-location enterprises. In New York City, it is also the optimal backhaul solution for wireless Carriers that depend on Transit Wireless Ethernet to connect their customers in the MTA’s underground subway stations.

Internet connectivity

The Transit Wireless fiber optic network is 5G-ready and provides the backbone to future IoT and Smart City solutions.

Transit Wireless fiber internet connectivity delivers:

  • Secure, 5G-ready, upgradeable solutions that enable seamless website and application access
  • Simplified network architecture that increases network reliability
  • Lateral diversity option that provides an additional fiber pair on a separate physical path


Transit Wireless can provide secure and scalable network services on dedicated fiber and optical equipment through Wave Division Multiplex (WDM) Transport, also known as Wavelength Service. Wavelength Service provides organizations with the security and dependability of their own private network more efficiently and cost-effectively. Transit Wireless Wavelength service is available with:

  • 1G, 2.5G, 10G, 40G or 100G
  • LAN PHY and WAN PHY options
  • Ability to specify protocols and security measures
  • Option to stipulate A-Z path
  • Flexible network topologies, single or multiple waves
  • Single point of accountability

Dark fiber

Privately managed enterprise networks benefit from the security, speed, availability and cost-effectiveness of dark fiber. Dark fiber delivers advanced solutions with unmatched affordability and simplicity as well as:

  • Unrestricted access to unlimited bandwidth
  • Cost-effective pricing for long-term savings
  • More efficient network management
  • Flexible agreement options
  • Network diversity and redundancy

Fiber applications

The security, bandwidth and availability of the Transit Wireless fiber optic network make it the ideal delivery system for a range of critical applications:

  • Wireless backhaul
  • Managed private networks
  • Video transmission
  • Secure high-speed medical imaging transmission
  • Financial transactions and electronic trades
  • Enterprise buildings/Wide Area Networks (WAN)
  • Outdoor DAS network connectivity

Data colocation

There are many smart reasons to consider data center colocation with Transit Wireless, including:

  • Enhanced data security
  • Bandwidth expansion
  • Extension of network reach
  • Cost savings

Customers receive fast market entry, reduced capital expenditure and customized solutions.

Network operations

We maintain an in-house Network Operations Center to monitor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
