New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), a Tier 3 colocation campus that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean meet, has welcomed Tata Communications as one of its first colocation customers.
NJFX’s brand new carrier-neutral colocation facility already interconnects with Tata Communications’ Cable Landing Station (CLS) via private backhaul. The NJFX colocation campus sits adjacent to Tata Communications’ CLS and offers instant connectivity from around the globe.
With direct access to Tier 1 Internet Service Providers (ISPs), fiber providers, and other network operators, NJFX customers are able to avoid traditional backhaul solutions and design high-capacity, low latency networks directly to and from the cable head.
The grand opening launch event will feature world champion racing driver, Mario Andretti, and will offer attendees the opportunity to tour the new colocation facility and network with industry leaders.
As the Diamond Sponsor for its ‘Tier 3 by the Subsea grand opening’ launch event, taking place on Sept. 21, 2016, Tata Communications is also hosting its ‘Lewis Hamilton race car virtual reality tour’ and ‘Formula 1 racing simulation’ – to further drive home the speed that customers would benefit from NJFX and Tata Communications’ partnership. In addition, Chief Operations Officer of Tata Communications, John Hayduk, will be participating in an intimate fireside chat with Mario Andretti and NJFX Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Gil Santaliz.
“Tata Communications has been indispensable to our ‘Tier 3 by the Subsea’ project,” said Gil Santaliz, “We are proud that Tata Communications not only facilitated our strategy to tether the facility to its subsea landing station, but also found value in the data center for its own initiatives by deploying servers in our mission-critical environment.”
NJFX’s 64,800-square-foot data center features high and low-density colocation solutions with 24/7 tech support assisting carriers, content providers and enterprises, as well as federal and state government entities.
“Adjacencies of having a data center facility with a subsea cable landing station connecting North America, Europe and South America provides tremendous value for customers,” said John Hayduk. “We believe that enterprises and service providers alike will be eager to adopt products and services with NJFX to gain access to the connectivity ecosystem that resides within our landing station.”
