NJFX Cable Landing Station Campus enables multiple, diverse route capabilities for Eastlink while avoiding congested NYC chokepoints
Announcing another great addition to the NJFX ecosystem, NJFX welcomes Eastlink – which has deployed its fiber-optic network ring at the NJFX CLS campus. Eastlink is a Canadian telecommunications company. NJFX is now a strategic location on the Eastlink fiber ring that connects the New Jersey, New York City metro area to Toronto and Montreal.
Offering significant network diversity, this expansion provides increased resiliency for business and mission-critical organizations, such as the finance, government, education, enterprise, retail and healthcare sectors.
“One of the key reasons NJFX was formed was to enable more diversity and high-quality route options to support global network architectures. With more than 30 carriers and four subsea cables at our CLS campus, the route possibilities for any organization that relies on high capacity bandwidth are endless.” – Felix Seda, General Manager, NJFX
“Eastlink is excited to expand our network into NJFX’s robust telecom ecosystem. This will provide diverse routing for key destinations such as Ashburn, VA while avoiding the congested NYC metro area,” – Steve Irvine, Senior VP Engineering and CTO, Eastlink
NJFX and Eastlink customers can also reach eastern key PoPs in Stamford, CT, Boston, MA, Portland, ME and beyond to Atlantic Canada, where they can access the GTT Cable Landing Station. An added advantage and capability are that customers can also connect to key network routes from NJFX to the Caribbean and onto South America, including connectivity to Gemini Bermuda Consortium (CBUS-1) and East Caribbean Fiber System (ECFS).
