MRV Communications™, Inc., a global provider of innovative packet and optical solutions for service providers, data center operators and enterprises, announces that Cross River Fiber, a New Jersey-based fiber optic and telecommunications service provider, has selected MRV’s solutions to light its dark fiber network.
By leveraging MRV’s cutting-edge packet and optical technology, Cross River Fiber will effectively transform from a dark fiber provider to a managed network provider.
Cross River Fiber will utilize MRV’s OptiDriver® optical transport solution to interconnect its footprint with third-party providers to expand its capacity between New Jersey and New York City.

The state-of-the-art design delivers outstanding total cost of ownership and end-to-end transport solutions for customers with various connection requirements. Cross River Fiber will now support enterprise customers with Ethernet, OTN and SONET requirements. MRV will provide complete packet and optical integration for Cross River Fiber that simplifies turn-up and offers greater visibility to support critical service-level agreements (SLAs).
“As Cross River Fiber continues to expand, MRV is the ideal partner to light our network with their ‘pay as you grow’ solution,” said Vincenzo Clemente, Chief Executive Officer of Cross River Fiber. “We have already benefited from MRV’s industry-leading, cost-effective technology for quite some time, and the work we are currently doing with MRV is taking Cross River Fiber to the next level through significant network enhancements.
