Telia Carrier announced today at Capacity Europe 2019 that it opened a new Point of Presence (PoP) at NJFX’s Cable Landing Station colocation campus in Wall, New Jersey. Delivering multi-terabit capacity, the new PoP offers access to highly resilient and diverse network routes across North America and Europe. The company enables worldwide connectivity by connecting more than 300 PoPs across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East. According to Dyn Research’s global backbone rankings, Telia Carrier’s global IP backbone, AS1299, is currently ranked number one. “We designed our architecture at NJFX to support high capacity and huge demand ahead for expanded network reach and resiliency,” said Staffan Göjeryd, CEO, Telia Carrier. “At the NJFX CLS, we offer maximum flexibility and extensions into the rest of the Telia Carrier global network and tying it into the recently announced expansion of the East Coast corridor where we added two new routes between New Jersey and Northern Virginia.”
Seamless Global Reach
By leveraging the Havfrue/AEC2 subsea cable system located at NJFX, Telia Carrier customers can now reach Denmark directly and transit the Nordics, Baltics, and can access four unique fiber routes going into Russia. Organizations located at NJFX can now access the Seabras cable system with direct routes into South America, ideal for LATAM customers looking for network diversity, terrestrial extensions, and IP connectivity. In addition, financial organizations located at NJFX can leverage Telia Carrier’s connectivity linking subsea cables to financial data centers throughout New Jersey and New York. This offers the ability to extend capacity from the NJFX CLS campus and access unique routes bypassing Manhattan and Northern New Jersey, along with connecting to new subsea cables coming online for increased network transparency and resiliency.
“Telia Carrier’s terabit scale capacity expansion into NJFX is a perfect embodiment of NJFX’s mission to enable the resilient global connectivity and capabilities for our customers and carrier partners. Enterprises, financials, and service provider customers can now connect directly into Telia Carrier’s network and access a seamless network solution with terrestrial backhaul routes that reach key points of presence across the East Coast and beyond.” – Gil Santaliz, CEO, NJFX
