NJFX’s CEO Gil Santaliz to Speak at Metro Connect 2018

January 16, 2018

WALL, NJ – January 16, 2018  – NJFX, the first and only colocation campus to sit at a cable landing station in the U.S and offer Tier 3, carrier-neutral data center capabilities, announces its CEO, Gil Santaliz will speak on a panel at Metro Connect 2018.

Metro Connect will be held January 29 – 31, 2018 in Miami, Florida and features panels and strategic discussions including the industry’s most influential businesses, and the who’s who of the metro market. Santaliz’ panel entitled, ‘Where Subsea Meets Metro: Bridging Land and Sea,’ will focus on the changing dynamics of subsea cable landings and the affect on data traffic patterns, new business models, and considerations for submarine cable owners in relation to terrestrial connectivity when building new routes.

In addition, Santaliz will also share publically with executives of North American carriers how the NJFX carrier-neutral cable landing station campus will support the recently announced Aqua Comms investment of the HAVFRUE subsea cable connecting the United States (New Jersey) with Northern Europe. HAVFRUE is the first new undersea cable traversing the North Atlantic to connect mainland Northern Europe to the US in nearly two decades. Network services will be delivered to and from NJFX’s high reliability, carrier-neutral interconnection point in Wall, New Jersey.

“I look forward to the discussion at Metro Connect as the industry recognizes that global communications are changing at a very fast pace,” comments Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “The role of cable landing stations, where subsea cables meet terrestrial routes, is ever important. NJFX’s unequaled Tier 3 colocation center is a place where we invite North American metro providers to meet subsea cable systems and present their unique routes across North America and beyond. Our campus is extremely reliable, secure and an optimal location as it serves as the physical first and last stop in the U.S.”

NJFX’s Marketplace offers partners and clients a viable, secure way to connect to subsea networks across Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Africa. That connectivity is achieved via secure Network to Network Interfaces (NNI) with major transatlantic cables, the NJFX Market PoP (Point of Presence) and a rich carrier ecosystem, all of which combined now boast interconnection to over one million route miles, both subsea and terrestrial, and more than one million square feet of global data center space across over 180 countries.
