New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) announced the launch of its Tier 3 by the Subsea colocation campus yesterday, the very first of its kind to intersect where subsea cables from the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean meet. The direct connectivity to Tier 1 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and fiber providers over these international cable systems redefines proximity and allows customers to avoid traditional backhaul solutions through the ability to design high-capacity, low latency networks directly to and from the cable head.
Last night, Founder and CEO of NJFX, Gil Santaliz, along with his team of industry veterans and visionaries celebrated the facility’s grand opening in style, bringing new meaning to the concepts of speed with virtual reality experiences, race car simulators and legendary celebrity guest, Mario Andretti. Friends, family and guests had the opportunity to toast to the unique facility, network with industry leaders and listen in on a fireside chat (moderated by none other than JSA’s Founder and CEO, Jaymie Scotto Cutaia) with Mr. Santaliz, Mr. Andretti and John Hayduk – COO of Tata Communications.
“NJFX is doing something that no company has ever done before,” said Mr. Santaliz. “The unique location of our campus enables unprecedented access to a number of the most sought after subsea and terrestrial assets transporting traffic nationally, as well as internationally. NJFX ensures our customers receive the flexible, reliable and secure connectivity they require to support their growing business needs.”
“Our mission is to develop one of the most robust and diverse ecosystems in the market within the NJFX facility,” added Doug Corbett, Vice President of Sales and Customer Relations. “The facility’s location and proximity to key subsea cable systems, with divers access to Europe and South America as well as highly sought after terrestrial routes fosters domestic and international strategic partnerships for interconnection.”
NJFX’s new, 64,800-square foot data center features the latest in mission critical infrastructure design and has the capacity for over 1,000 cabinets for carrier neutral colocation and greater capacity to address customers’ high-density power needs up to 20kW/cabinet. With an annual design PUE of 1.35 and a state-of-the-art rooftop cooling system, the facility offers environmentally friendly solutions. NJFX provides all customers with access to its carrier-neutral MMR and Tata Communications’ CLS, enabling connectivity to more than 240 countries and territories, as well as 99.7% of the world’s GDP.
