Wall, NJ – November 18, 2020 – NJFX, the only Cable Landing Station (CLS) colocation campus in the U.S offering Tier 3, carrier-neutral data center capabilities, today announces that United Fiber & Data (UFD) has established a long-awaited, diverse route connecting NJFX to Ashburn, VA. This unique and secure route provides enterprises, content providers, local municipalities, and hyperscalers an alternative from the highly congested I-95 route that many carriers traverse. The new route is 341 miles long and is expected to be ready for service Q4 2020.
UFD’s diverse network connects its dense fiber footprint in New York/New Jersey Metro to Ashburn, Virginia, and provides customers the capability to deploy UFD’s diverse route as a primary or redundant path, without having to double the distance and latency via routes that traverse further west. Customers are now able to leverage UFD’s unique route from Ashburn, VA and extend their global reach from the NJFX CLS in Wall Township, NJ, with options to traverse four independent subsea cable systems including TGN1, TGN2, Seabras, and HAVFRUE/AEC2 – interconnecting North America, Europe, South America, and the Caribbean. In addition, NJFX’s robust ecosystem offers a critical interconnection hub with direct access to more than 10 terrestrial backhaul fiber routes across North America.
“It’s a huge benefit for our CLS ecosystem to have UFD deploy the most unique and diverse route from NJFX to Ashburn, Virginia,” states Felix Seda, General Manager for NJFX. “And since this is a brand-new fiber build with the latest fiber technology and equipment, it is inherently a very fast route. NJFX has developed a critical mass in terms of our connectivity ecosystem, and we look forward to further growth and expanded capabilities of up to 600G from UFD.”
“United Fiber & Data is excited to bring our geographically diverse fiber network and flexible, low latency lit services of 10G and 100G to provide secure, high capacity network connectivity to NJFX and its clients,” said Christopher Lodge, COO and interim CEO of United Fiber & Data. “United Fiber & Data’s fiber infrastructure and scalable capacity on its unique route and the ability to turn up services quickly positions us to be the provider of choice for secure, high capacity, low latency network connectivity.”
