NJFX says its Tier 3 Cable Landing Station (CLS) has recently added some larger carriers, helping it not only link to networks across the U.S. but to continents overseas. The “campus” consists of a 64,800 square foot purpose-built Tier 3 CLS Colocation facility on its 58-acre site in Wall, NJ. Other NJFX-linked service providers include Crown Castle, Epsilon, Altice, Tata Communications and Zayo.
Yesterday, CenturyLink announced it linked into NJFX to offer its customers more options to connect and leverage services through an underground terrestrial fiber network, connecting key routes across North America. CenturyLink’s global fiber network includes approximately 450,000 route miles of fiber.
When a co-location 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.
“Cable Landing Station co-location is where networks live today and at NJFX, there are petabytes of data per second being transported across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe and South America,” comments NJFX CEO Gil Santaliz. “We welcome CenturyLink, which has arguably one of the most interconnected and deeply peered networks in the U.S. today to our growing ecosystem of terrestrial carriers that provide diverse, private routes to transport all of that data from our CLS campus across North America and beyond.”
“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 New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut. “We look forward to offering our services suite at the NJFX campus and to our enterprise customers.”
