Global, terrestrial and subsea network operator, Tata Communications, has opened its core network presence at the NJFX Cable Landing Campus (CLC) in Wall, New Jersey – a Tier 3 carrier-neutral subsea colocation campus linking the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean.
The new PoP provides interconnection to Tata Communications’ carrier-grade Ethernet, MPLS, IP transit and to TGN network. This would enable ‘hair pin’ route design between continents for latency reduction, disaster avoidance and recovery, as well as operating cost reduction.
Working with one of the seven major U.S. carriers present at NJFX, international carriers and major content providers can now deliver direct routes from the CLC bypassing legacy infrastructure and avoiding New York City as a single point of failure for their global network traffic.
“Tata Communications has played an integral role in bringing NJFX to the market from day one and this next step is a natural progression for our relationship,” said Gil Santaliz Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NJFX. “We have invited all international carriers to join us in establishing the same high standards, which Tata Communications has fully embraced.”
For Tata Communications, the PoP at NJFX would extend its vision to provide ‘A New World of Communications’ to its entire customer base. By connecting directly, customers would gain greater control of their networks through seamless connections and enhanced visibility, resulting in optimal network performance.
“The deployment of an interconnection POP in the NJFX facility enables us to provide customers with enhanced connectivity options locally, regionally and internationally,” said Matthew Ma, Vice President of International Transmission Product, Engineering and Cable Planning, Tata Communications. “The option to connect directly provides customers with the ability to bypass New York City, a potential choke point, in the event of a force majeure.”
