Aqua Comms, a leading provider of global subsea connectivity services, has recently announced a partnership with NYI, a prominent provider of hybrid infrastructure and interconnection services. This collaboration enables Aqua Comms to offer its customers cost-effective access to an extensive global interconnection ecosystem. By expanding its interconnection capabilities in the United States, Aqua Comms aims to cater to the growing demands of international carriers, cloud-based networks, and industries relying on high-performance, low-latency networks. This press release highlights the strategic locations and benefits of the partnership, emphasizing the advantages it brings to Aqua Comms’ customers.
Expanding Interconnection Capabilities in the United States
Aqua Comms has strategically chosen two interconnection facilities in New York to enhance its services. The first facility is Long Island Interconnect (formerly 1025 Connect) in Westbury, Long Island, which is situated near the Shirley cable landing station where Aqua Comms’ AEC-1 trans-Atlantic cable lands. The facility plays a pivotal role in Aqua Comms’ U.S. offering, serving as the connection point for this advanced ‘next-generation’ undersea cable system linking the U.S., Ireland, and the UK. It also provides access to Aqua Comms’ AEC-2 and AEC-3 trans-Atlantic systems, extending connectivity to Ireland, the UK, and the Nordics. This facility is an attractive and versatile hub for carriers, enterprises, and data centers looking to expand their network reach.
The second facility, NYI-QTD1, is a joint venture between NYI and QTD Systems, located at 60 Hudson Street in New York City, one of the city’s original carrier hotels. Formerly known as Equinix NY8, this facility offers Aqua Comms customers near limitless connectivity at reasonable costs and provides access to over 300 carriers through NYI’s robust in-building conduit system. This partnership expands the options available within the New York interconnection ecosystem, benefiting both Aqua Comms and NYI’s existing customers.
