Hurricane Electric Expands Global Network to New Jersey

Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone, announced today that it has deployed a new Point of Presence (PoP) at NJFX.

The new PoP is located just 60 miles from Manhattan and is Hurricane Electric’s fifth in New Jersey and 11th in the greater New York City area.

Hurricane Electric will leverage NJFX’s network-rich facility to provide high-speed IP transit via its extensive global IPv6 and IPv4 network through 1/10/100GE ports, resulting in reduced latency and improved traffic flow.

Additionally, networks within NJFX’s facility will have a direct path to Hurricane Electric’s global network encompassing more than 250 major exchange points and more than 8,000 different networks. The expansion will also allow Hurricane Electric and its customers to directly interconnect with subsea capacity services across the Atlantic to Ireland, Denmark and Northern Europe.

NJFX, home to four subsea cable systems and seven independent U.S. fiber-based backhaul providers, serves as a strategic distribution center for data demarcation into and throughout North America. Its community of carriers make the NJFX CLS a marketplace rich with fiber networks and platforms providing multiple options for routes, security and diversity.

NJFX offers 64,800 square feet of data center space and is the first and only colocation campus physically located at a cable landing station. With Tier 3, carrier neutral data center capabilities, this data center is strategically located to offer direct access to multiple independent subsea cable systems interconnecting North America, Europe, South America, and the Caribbean.
