Garden State’s Newest Data Center Gets Direct Fiber Tap to Brazil and Beyond

January 22, 2016

New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) this week announced it is developing a new 52,235-sq ft data center along the northern New Jersey coast that will provide direct connections to international submarine telecommunications cables, according to a company statement. The company, officially formed late last week, said it will partner with India-based telecom giant Tata Communications to provide colocation and other data center services at the new facility.

The news came on the same day that Tata announced it had bought into the Seabras-1 undersea cable currently under construction to link North America and Brazil. Seaborn Networks, which is the project’s developer and will operate the cable, earlier this week announced a deal that has Tata purchasing “significant capacity” on the undersea cable that will link the two countries with landing points in Wall, New Jersey, and Fortaleza and São Paulo in Brazil.

The linking of North America and Europe to South America is key to the promotional push by NJFX, which on its website highlights the new facility’s “Independent International Cable Access” to the regions.
