Moving Forward Toward Enhanced Connectivity: NJFX Continues Development of “Tier 3 by the Subsea”

April 29, 2016

The past six months have been an incredible journey for NJFX as we hit the ground running with the development of our groundbreaking Tier 3 data center in Wall Township, NJ. The idea was to create a cutting-edge facility strategically located at a Cable Landing Station (CLS) along the Jersey coast, providing connectivity unlike any other data center has offered in the past – and we’re well on our way to achieving that goal.

In late September of last year, NJFX officially announced plans to open its premier data center alongside a new partnership with Tata Communications, which would provide high-speed intercontinental connectivity via undersea cabling – thus dubbing our new venture, “Tier 3 by the Subsea.”  Relying on design expertise from Bala Consulting Engineers, we set out to build a facility that would provide highly flexible, scalable and robust infrastructure complete with the highest reliability, ample power supply and energy efficiency.  This undertaking would redefine proximity, giving customers the opportunity to take control of their networks with routes that would directly connect them to U.S., Europe and South America by way of Tata’s international CLS. By adding a little fiber to the typical data center diet, we began creating a new kind of facility that would change the way customers connect around the world.

NJFX’s next major development came this past January during PTC ’16 when we announced the expansion of Windstream’s 100G network to the NJFX Meet-Me Room (MMR) inside Tata’s CLS. Windstream’s long-haul express network will stretch from its Point of Presence (PoP) in Ashburn all the way to Wall Township, offering customers four main benefits: four separate paths and in and out of Ashburn – the most concentrated location for Internet traffic in the world; access to Windstream’s enterprise-class cloud communications; connectivity to and from 9 million square feet of data center space; and plans to offer a full portfolio of IP infrastructure services as well as 100 Gigabit Internet hand-offs in the near future.

We’re very proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in this short time frame, and look forward to attaining many more milestones in the years ahead.  Today, construction of our Wall Township data center is well underway. As we quickly approach phase two of development slated for this coming September, NJFX plans to capitalize on this forward momentum and share our progress with you every step of the way.
