CenturyLink offers an extensive global fiber network including approximately 450,000 route miles of fiber and a network serving customers around the world. The CenturyLink network provides secure and reliable services to meet the growing digital demands of businesses. Focused on customer success, CenturyLink’s expansion into NJFX offers its customers more options to connect and leverage cutting-edge services.
NJFX, home to four subsea cable systems and seven independent U.S. fiber-based backhaul providers, serves as a strategic distribution center for data demarcation into and throughout North America. Its community of carriers make the NJFX CLS a marketplace rich with fiber networks and platforms providing multiple options for routes, security and diversity.
“Establishing a point of presence at NJFX allows CenturyLink customers close proximity to data, decreasing network latency, along with delivering smart options to further diversify and plan their international connections with clarity and accuracy,” comments Warren Greenberg, vice president and general manager for CenturyLink in NYC, NJ and CT. “We look forward to offering our services suite at the NJFX campus and to our enterprise customers.”
When a colocation data center campus is physically located at the meeting point of multiple subsea cable landings linking three continents, international connectivity is just a single cross-connect away. The result is a high-resilience, low-latency network with direct interconnection options for service providers, enterprises, carrier-neutral operators and cable companies.
NJFX’s unique CLS model offers more than just the landing point as it helps carriers and subsea providers get data out into the hands of the companies delivering the data, provide faster on-ramps to cloud infrastructure and power communications more reliably.
