Its underground fiber long-haul network is a key asset for secure, resilient infrastructures
Wall, NJ – October 13, 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 Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ) has chosen to deploy a new network Point-of-Presence (PoP) at its CLS campus, providing access to Verizon’s global network. One of the largest communication technology companies in the world, Verizon operates America’s most reliable wireless network and the nation’s premier all-fiber network, delivering integrated solutions to businesses worldwide.
“We are especially pleased that Verizon has chosen to establish a Point-of-Presence at our CLS colocation campus, as one of three current backhaul providers at NJFX with underground fiber for its long-haul routes,” states Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “It has always been our vision to develop NJFX to become North America’s preeminent international hub for subsea communications, interconnecting many international carriers across three continents with multiple secure and reliable backhaul and U.S. termination options. World-class communications providers such as Verizon, as well as subsea cable operators, enterprises and cloud providers within our CLS ecosystem, recognize that NJFX provides a nexus for collaboration where they can build out new and reinforce existing networks with diverse routes while extending their global reach.”
Leveraging its strategic presence at the NJFX CLS, Verizon will have the ability to directly interconnect with subsea capacity services across the Atlantic to Ireland, Denmark and Northern Europe. Strategically located 64 feet above sea level and Category 5 hurricane resistant, the NJFX CLS campus facility offers direct access to multiple independent subsea cable systems, including AEC-2, TGN1, TGN2, and Seabras. Customers can now access Verizon’s global network at NJFX and interconnect with these four subsea cable systems to Europe and South America. European-based clients can transport data to Verizon’s PoP at NJFX and extend their reach to major U.S. metro markets via seven independent fiber-based backhaul providers available at the CLS colocation campus.
NJFX is unique in that it offers access to underground fiber on a long-haul network from multiple backhaul providers for direct and diverse connectivity to core U.S. markets, including Ashburn, Chicago, Dallas, North Carolina, Philadelphia, and other cities, thereby bypassing common points of network failure such as New York City, Northern New Jersey, and Miami. Access to multiple backhaul routes creates truly diverse options that ensure reliability, availability and security of data transport – a critical requirement for carriers and content providers, financial services, healthcare and other enterprises, as well as government agencies, which depend upon maximum uptime.
“At Verizon, we believe that the network is an engine for business growth and innovation,” comments Lynn Smullen, Division Vice President of Sales at Verizon Partner Solutions, “and in order to serve the needs of global organizations today and into the future requires connectivity that maximizes redundancy and reduces latency while fortifying the security of their international data traffic. The deployment of a new network Point-of-Presence at NJFX will expand our clients’ transoceanic and terrestrial connectivity options, presenting new business opportunities both intercontinentally and across North America in core markets.”
