This new, independent route is now operational with live customer traffic and bypasses legacy NYC chokepoints, providing a secure network option to Europe from Ashburn, Virginia.
“The leadership role Epsilon has taken to support the global networking community is recognized as a critical connectivity infrastructure initiative; eliminating single points of failure like NYC and ensuring global traffic isn’t impacted by issues in the region,” stated NJFX CEO Gil Santaliz. “NJFX’s innovative Tier 3 CLS ‘Clarity in Connectivity’ approach is now being introduced as the standard for North American financials and multinational enterprises to also fortify their network routes and eliminate single points of failure from the US national data hubs.”
Founded on helping carriers strategically diversify their connectivity options, NJFX provides secure access to key hubs across North America and Europe, improving upon legacy architectures and paving the way for innovative capabilities. Through NJFX, network service providers can also leverage Epsilon’s on-demand connectivity platform, Infiny. Infiny is a software-defined networking (SDN) platform that gives users access to on-demand local, regional and global connectivity.
Epsilon’s global network fabric currently extends to over 100 data centers in North America, Europe, Asia the Middle East and Africa, and offers direct interconnects to the leading cloud service providers and internet exchanges. Users of the Infiny on-demand connectivity platform can turn up network services anytime, anywhere via a web-based portal, their smartphone or even integrated APIs.
The next step in eliminating points of failure in the U.S. will be bypassing Miami as the only major gateway for LATAM and the Caribbean. This is now available from NJFX in conjunction with several carriers using a cable system connecting New Jersey to Boca Raton, Florida via the Atlantic, then routing directly to Puerto Rico.
In addition, NJFX is participating at the Subsea Americas 2018 conference this week in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Santaliz is featured on the December 4th panel, “Riding the Upcoming Wave of Subsea Cable Optimization – How Are Data Centers Ahead of the Curve?” Santaliz, along with other industry leaders, will discuss benefits of connecting subsea cable systems at a data center, subsea cable optimization achievements, emerging markets and industry drivers. As the only event that focused exclusively on cables connecting or landing in North, South, and Central America, the conference highlights new cable builds and the stakeholders involved in bringing these subsea projects to fruition.
Winner of the 2018 Global Carrier Award for Best North American Project, NJFX offers direct access to five subsea cable systems including TGN1, TGN2, Seaborn, HAVFRUE/AEC2 (2019) and Wall-LI (2020).
