Aqua Comms and Epsilon Partner to Bring European Route Diversity and On-Demand Connectivity to NJFX’s Colocation Campus

Aqua Comms and Epsilon Partner to Bring European Route Diversity and On-Demand Connectivity to NJFX’s Colocation Campus 

WALL, NJ – May 15, 2017 - NJFX, the first and only colocation campus to sit at a cable landing station and offer Tier 3, carrier neutral data center capabilities, announces the addition of Aqua Comms DAC (“Aqua Comms”), the operator of Ireland’s first dedicated subsea fibre-optic network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London, and Epsilon Telecommunications, a privately owned global communications service provider, to its ever-growing connectivity ecosystem. With the introduction of Aqua Comms, NJFX customers can strategically diversify their connectivity options to key European hubs, bypassing legacy chokepoints within the U.S.  

Aqua Comms has deployed a Point of Presence (PoP) within NJFX’s colocation campus, allowing NJFX customers to directly access the carrier’s suite of services without incurring cross connect fees. Epsilon and Aqua Comms have partnered to deploy Infiny by Epsilon - an on-demand connectivity platform - within the NJFX facility, and Aqua Comms will use the Cloud Link eXchange (CloudLX) module of Infiny to rapidly interconnect new services in and out of the NJFX campus. Now, Aqua Comms’ customers can benefit from interconnecting with NJFX’s growing ecosystem of global carriers, network operators, enterprises, cloud providers, and internet exchanges.

“We are excited to welcome Aqua Comms as a strategic addition to our community,” says Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NJFX.  “What makes NJFX unique is its carrier neutral subsea capabilities, so customers have options when choosing which cables move their data from our campus to key landing points in Europe.  Having Aqua Comms at our colocation campus enables customers to further diversify and plan their international connections with certainty and accuracy, eliminating any transport uncertainty.”

"The CloudLX module of Infiny accelerates access to global cloud service providers and creates unique value for NJFX’s network operator tenants,” comments Carl Roberts, Chief Commercial Officer of Epsilon.  “We have combined a track record of success and innovation with an on-demand connectivity platform that simplifies how users connect and grow their businesses. Additionally, Epsilon will offer its customers access to an increasing number of new connectivity options to leverage and scale their operations more effectively."

“Establishing a PoP in the NJFX colocation campus grants our customers access to a diverse and growing ecosystem of carriers and service providers,” adds Nigel Bayliff, Chief Executive Officer of Aqua Comms. “With Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption offering, all data Aqua Comms carries remains secure and safeguarded from PoP to PoP. Plus, NJFX’s strategic location enables us to bypass congested legacy New York City hubs, eliminate multiple points of failure and save our customers from facing hefty cross connect fees.”

NJFX Announces Plan to Expand its Cable Landing Station Campus by an Additional 48 Acres

NJFX Prepares Design for Additional 80,000 Square Foot, Tenant-Specific Facility as Part of Campus Expansion Efforts

WALL, NJ – March 21, 2017 – NJFX, the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation campus that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, South America, Europe and the Caribbean meet, announces the expansion of its colocation campus in Wall, New Jersey. By expanding its campus an additional 48 acres, NJFX emphasizes its commitment to developing a tenant-driven community with purpose-built colocation and disaster recovery space, as well as its ability to accommodate space for future independent cable landing stations.

With the additional 48 acres, NJFX will now span a total of 58 acres across Wall Township. The flexible site plan will include a new, two-story 80,000 square foot data center and premium disaster recovery space that will sit adjacent to NJFX’s current Tier 3 facility - just 60 miles from New York City - with a plethora of global communication providers.

NJFX announced the completion of its colocation campus in September of 2016. The new Tier 3, purpose built 64,000 square foot colocation facility boasts a 10 MW design with the ability to support high density requirements up to 8KW per rack. The location offers a unique opportunity, as it sits 64 feet above sea level, which is significantly higher than lower Manhattan that sits at less than 24 feet above sea level. Its strategic positioning allows customers to not only have direct access to Tata Communications’ subsea cable landing station, but also offers access to the most robust and diverse facilities in the market.

“I am happy that NJFX intends to expand its investment in our community,” states Mayor Dominick DiRocco of Wall Township. “NJFX’s presence in our town, and proposed future expansion, helps us to meet our goal of growing our local economy in a sensible way, while also fostering growth in a critically important sector for our regional economy.”

“We are fortunate to be located in Wall where we have access to bores and multiple subsea cables,” adds Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NJFX. “By expanding the NJFX campus, customers will now have the option to work and live in a community that supports innovation and where communications rates are extremely competitive and reliable. Furthermore, having a safe haven locked down in a pleasant and secure area, in the event of a regional emergency, is ultimately the best scenario for any business.”

NJFX Expands its Campus Through the Development of Licensed Seats

NJFX seats are well-positioned for disaster recovery offering, only steps away from the Tier 3, carrier-neutral colocation campus

WALL, NJ – January 31, 2017 – NJFX, the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral subsea colocation campus linking the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean, announces a new strategic location only steps away from its cable landing station campus. The 10,000-square-foot facility will have the same look and feel as the 2016-commissioned Tier 3 campus with business continuity work seats licensed on a first come basis, monthly, or long-term. The addition of NJFX seats provides metro providers with strategic disaster recovery capabilities for added redundancy and continuity.

According to Gartner’s Business Continuity Management Program Methodology, by 2019, 35 percent of organizations with business continuity management that lack maturity will endure major problems recovering one or more mission critical business processes; a 17 percent increase from figures previously recorded. Sitting 64-square-feet above sea level, the new NJFX seats work to combat this problem and offer customers identical security protocols and access to the NJFX Customer Portal.

“Having the ability to support our clients with a disaster recovery plan, while also providing them with the convenience of having secure, direct access to their network at our cable landing station campus, is just another amenity that sets NJFX apart from other providers in the industry,” says Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NJFX.

The addition of licensed seats further highlights NJFX’s commitment to serving financial institutions looking to achieve FINRA compliance, as well as carriers seeking the convenience of directly accessing their network equipment. The new facility is hardened with direct fiber network elements; back up generators with room for

UPS Uninterruptible Power Service; conference rooms; and a kitchen.

“This new NJFX offering is particularly important for U.S. metro providers looking to extend high-bandwidth or dark fiber solutions between our cable landing station campus and legacy enterprise data centers,” adds John Danko, Director of Business Development for NJFX. “Today at Metro Connect 2017, there are several providers in

attendance who can benefit from this solution and we look forward to discussing their business continuity options further.”

NJFX is attending Capacity Magazine’s Metro Connect 2017 event in Miami, FL from January 31 – February 1, 2017. To request a meeting on-site, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

NJFX to Speak to its Edge Computing Network Strategy at Metro Connect 2017

Media Alert 

 

WALL, NJ – January 25, 2017 – NJFX, the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation campus that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, South America, Europe and the Caribbean meet, announces that its Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Gil Santaliz, will be attending, sponsoring and speaking at Capacity Magazine’s annual conference, Metro Connect 2017. Now in its 16th year, Metro Connect will be held at the Eden Roc Resort in Miami Beach, where it continues to bring together C-level executives within the metro fiber market to network and share industry insights.

Mr. Santaliz will speak on the panel entitled The Edge: The Importance of Becoming Local, taking place at 4:00 p.m. EST on January 31st. The roundtable discussion will focus on the noticeable shift metro fiber providers are taking to localize service to reduce latency, and provide insight into edge computing in the Internet of Things (IoT) age. Mr. Santaliz, along with fellow industry executives, will also explore the services metro providers offer to the marketplace and question if standalone businesses can survive or if vertical integration with data centers is essential.

“After returning from PTC where our management team met with over 30 international carriers, content providers and US carriers, it leaves NJFX in a unique position,” states Santaliz. “Metro Connect offers the ideal platform to discuss NJFX’s robust ecosystem and how it allows our customers the ability to bypass New York City not only eliminating multiple points of failure for international bound traffic, but also saves customers hefty cross connect fees levied by the aging carrier hotels in lower Manhattan.”

Metro Connect provides delegates with a two-day platform to focus on premier networking with over 500 senior representatives along with educational opportunities.

NJFX Celebrates a Successful Phase III Completion

Phase III completion coincides with NJFX’s powering of its first customer cage

  

WALL, NJ – January 17, 2017 – NJFX, the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral subsea colocation campus linking the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean, announces the completion of the third and final phase of its Tier 3, carrier neutral facility. The completion of Phase III coincides with NJFX’s powering of its first customer cage that uses the company’s 432 tie cable to provide ubiquitous connectivity across the NJFX campus and its Cable Landing Station (CLS) Meet Me Room. Moving forward, carriers across the United States will begin the process of interconnecting the NJFX campus with their self-managed fiber cables, using the NJFX 8 POE’s designed to support well over 300 varying terrestrial and subsea fiber cables, thereby allowing on and off ramps between South America, Europe and the Caribbean via its Atlantic Ocean gateway. 

Over an ambitious 15-month development cycle, the company expanded its campus with the addition of a brand new 64,800-square foot colocation facility, completing the build out and commissioning in record time. Phase III’s availability positions NJFX to accommodate compute-heavy and content-rich applications that not only require a diverse carrier ecosystem, but also robust power density. In North America, NJFX has seven United States backhaul providers preparing to serve private fiber backhaul to cities across country, all while bypassing New York City and other legacy infrastructure.  

“2016 was an outstanding year for NJFX,” states Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NJFX. “We launched the facility in September and since then have developed key strategic partnerships with a multitude of networks and successfully completed our data center commissioning. As we head into 2017, we look forward to further developing our campus’ ecosystem, one of the most robust and diverse in the market.” 

Now fully built, the NJFX colocation campus offers capacity for 1,000 cabinet equivalents with power densities up to 20kW/cabinet load. All critical electrical and mechanical systems are configured with N+1 redundancy and the facility boasts a design PUE of 1.35 facilitated by an evaporative rooftop cooling solution. Additionally, customers have direct access to Tata Communication’s subsea cable landing station for strategic, low latency connectivity to Europe and South America.      

NJFX’s new facility features the latest in mission critical infrastructure design and enables connectivity to more than 240 countries and territories, as well as 99.7% of the world’s GDP. For more information on the NJFX colocation campus, visit http://www.njfx.net/
