New Jersey Fiber Exchange to Speak at Capacity Latam 2016

NJFX CEO Gil Santaliz to Appear on Panel to Discuss Enabling Data Localization and Maintaining Customers’ Privacy

March 8, 2016

WALL, NJ – New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation facility that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, South America, Europe and the Caribbean meet, announces today that its CEO, Gil Santaliz, will participate on a panel at Capacity Latam 2016, taking place March 15-16, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Now in its 13th year, Capacity Latam has grown to become the single most important meeting for Latin America’s wholesale telecom industry.

On March 16 at 12:00 PM, Mr. Santaliz, joined by executives from BT Global Services, Equinix and IFX Networks, will participate in the panel discussion, “Enabling Data Localization – Are Data Centers and Cloud Services as Safe as We Like to Think They Are?”  The panel will examine customers’ increased awareness of where their data is kept and what companies are doing to ensure that their customers’ privacy is maintained.

“Within this past year, there has been a growing concern across the industry regarding the privacy and security of customers’ data,” states Mr. Santaliz.  “It is our responsibility to make the industry aware of now being able to eliminate traditional fiber backhaul from international cable landing stations and avoid unnecessary congested legacy infrastructure with often high cross-connect fees.”

“Content, enterprise and carrier customers can now regroom or simply deliver new incremental growth with private fiber backhaul to any metro from many subsea cables in one U.S. location.   Our customers not only benefit from this new model and have the option of locating their critical infrastructure in our secure Tier 3 data center boasting efficient and reliable direct connectivity, but also the peace of mind that their data and personal information is safe, and their privacy secure,” Santaliz adds.

As the premier “Tier 3 by the Subsea” carrier-neutral colocation and Meet-Me Room (MMR) provider in Wall Township, New Jersey, NJFX provides direct interconnection options at the cable headend to service providers, enterprises, carrier-neutral operators, and cable companies.  The development of this new edge empowers customers to take control of their networks rather than being forced to rely on traditional backhaul solutions.  Through its managed MMR within Tata Communications’ international Cable Landing Station (CLS), NJFX offer tenants highly resilient, low-latency global connectivity to more than 240 countries and territories, as well as 99.7 percent of the world’s GDP by way of one of the largest and most advanced subsea fiber networks.
