New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation campus that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean meet, has welcomed Tata Communications as the first colocation customer and diamond sponsor for its Tier 3 by the Subsea grand opening launch event, taking place on September 21, 2016.
NJFX’s brand new carrier-neutral, highly secure enterprise-class facility already interconnects with Tata Communication’s landing station via private backhaul.
NJFX colocation campus sits adjacent to Tata Communications’ Cable Landing Station (CLS) and offers instant connectivity from around the globe. With direct access to Tier 1 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) fiber providers, and other network operators, NJFX customers are able to avoid traditional backhaul solutions and design high-capacity, low latency networks directly to and from the cable head.
The grand opening launch event will feature world champion racing driver, Mario Andretti, and will offer attendees the opportunity to tour the new facility and network with industry leaders. As a diamond sponsor, Tata Communications is also hosting its Lewis Hamilton race car virtual reality tour and Formula 1 racing simulation to further drive home the speed customers will benefit from NJFX and Tata Communications partnership. In addition, chief operations officer for Tata Communications, John Hayduk, will be participating in an intimate fireside chat with Andretti and NJFX founder and chief executive officer, Gil Santaliz.
“Tata Communications has been indispensable to our ‘Tier 3 by the Subsea’ project,” says Santaliz. “We are proud that Tata Communications not only facilitated our strategy to tether the facility to its subsea landing station, but also found value in the data center for its own initiatives by deploying servers in our mission-critical environment.”
“Adjacencies of having a data center facility with a subsea cable landing station connecting North America, Europe and South America provides tremendous value for customers,” says Hayduk “We believe that enterprises and service providers alike will be eager to adopt products and services with NJFX to gain access to the connectivity ecosystem that resides within our landing station.”
