New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), a colocation campus that sits at a cable landing station and offers Tier 3, carrier-neutral data center capabilities, is working with major carriers to expedite the installation of infrastructure to support a connectivity hubs reeling from Hurricane Irma-related power outages.
“The way we communicate worldwide is all through the Miami, Puerto Rico and New York City gateways,” said Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “If Miami went down, the only way to communicate to Europe and South America is through Puerto Rico. We are in contact right now with major carriers that supply connectivity to large, international companies and are looking to keep networks up and running. They are confidently turning to NJFX and rest assured that their needs will be met.”
Santaliz added, “If New York’s telecom infrastructure is impacted either through natural or other disasters, then major carriers and telecoms will be adversely affected. Because NJFX has an optimal location in New Jersey, which bypasses legacy chokepoints and the congested NYC routes, we play a major a role in making networks work. NJFX offers a critical solution for multinational businesses and carriers in the U.S.”
NJFX’s New Jersey location is 64 feet above sea level, and clients can diversify their connectivity options to key hubs across North America, Europe, South America and the Caribbean. It has partnerships with more than 10 carriers and service provider partners.
“AquaComms provides high capacity networking systems designed to future-proof connectivity options for cloud, content, service providers and carriers,” said Nigel Bayliff, CEO for AquaComms. “We recognize the value of being strategically located at the NJFX campus because it securely interconnects major, international subsea networks with terrestrial networks on the U.S. east coast.”
