Tata Communications Deploys Interconnection POP in NJFX’s Colocation Campus

November 7, 2016

WALL, NJ – November 07, 2016 – New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral subsea colocation campus linking the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean, announces that Tata Communications, a leading global, terrestrial and subsea network operator, has opened its core network presence at the NJFX Cable Landing Campus (CLC) in Wall, NJ. The POP provides interconnection to Tata Communications’ carrier-grade Ethernet, MPLS, IP transit and to TGN network. This is a significant development and strategic shift in global network architecture enabling “hair pin” route design between continents for latency reduction, disaster avoidance and recovery, as well as operating cost reduction.

NJFX’s Tier-3, carrier-neutral campus affords international carriers the unique opportunity to set a new standard by accessing Tata Communications’ transatlantic network services, which can be handed off to U.S. carriers at the CLC. Working with one of the seven major U.S. carriers present at NJFX, international carriers and major content providers can now deliver direct routes from the CLC bypassing legacy infrastructure and avoiding New York City as a single point of failure for their global network traffic.

For Tata Communications, the POP at NJFX extends its industry leading vision to provide A New World of Communications™ to its entire customer base. By connecting directly, customers now can gain greater control of their networks through seamless connections and enhanced visibility, resulting in optimal network performance.

“Tata Communications has played an integral role in bringing NJFX to the market from day one and this next step is a natural progression for our relationship,” states Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NJFX. “We have invited all international carriers to join us in establishing the same high standards, which Tata Communications has fully embraced.”

“The deployment of an interconnection POP in the NJFX facility enables us to provide customers with enhanced connectivity options locally, regionally and internationally,” adds Matthew Ma, Vice President of International Transmission Product, Engineering and Cable Planning for Tata Communications. “The option to connect directly provides customers with the ability to bypass New York City, a potential choke point, in the event of a force majeure.”

NJFX is attending Capacity Europe in Paris on November 7-9, 2016.
