January 25, 2017

WALL, NJ –  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’s full built colocation campus offers capacity for 1,000 cabinet equivalents with power densities up to 20kW/cabinet load and 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.
