NJFX made a splash during day one of Capacity Europe by announcing that Tata Communications has opened its core network presence at the NJFX Cable Landing Campus (CLC) in Wall, NJ. This announcement marks a significant development and strategic shift in global network architectures by enabling a “hair pin” route between continents for latency reduction, disaster avoidance and recovery, and lower OPEX.
NJFX’s Tier-3, carrier-neutral campus provides international carriers the unique opportunity to set a new standard by accessing Tata Communications’ transatlantic network services, which can be handed off to U.S. carriers at the CLC. 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,” states Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NJFX. “We have invited all international carriers to join us in establishing the same high standards, which Tata Communications has fully embraced.”
“The deployment of an interconnection PoP in the NJFX facility enables us to provide customers with enhanced connectivity options locally, regionally and internationally,” adds Matthew Ma, Vice President of International Transmission Product, Engineering and Cable Planning for 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.”
