The Continental Edge on the Eastern Seaboard is rapidly emerging as hotbed of connectivity due to its abundance of subsea cable landings at two strategically-located colocation facilities on Long Island and in New Jersey, offering routes to Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa.
Epsilon, for instance, has announced a plan to establish key interconnect locations the 1025Connect data center in Long Island, New York, and the Tier 3 NJFX colocation campus in Wall, New Jersey. These new points will allow the company to further expand its renowned connectivity platform, while creating the easternmost SDN exchange in the U.S.
Moving forward, Epsilon will offer service providers direct access to cloud, content, local networks, submarine cable systems and Internet Exchange (IX) peering services from NJFX and 1025Connect.
The Infiny on-demand connectivity platform brings the speed and agility of the cloud to networking, making procuring and managing global connectivity incredibly easy. It also comes with around-the-clock service access through an intuitive web portal or APIs. Infiny has intelligent networking technology that allows the company to offer guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) and Experience (QoE), end-to-end and around the world.
By making the Infiny platform available at the Continental Edge, Epsilon can provide access to an interconnected network of subsea cable providers, enabling connectivity between Asia, Europe, Latin America and Africa as well as across Epsilon’s colocation facilities and North American network. The company is now interconnected with the Aqua Comms cable system, and has plans to further diversify its submarine connectivity options from NJFX and 1025Connect.
Operators connecting to Epsilon at NJFX and 1025Connect will also benefit from direct connections to top IX and cloud providers as well as a wide range of peering solutions via the region’s fastest-growing carrier-neutral IX provider, DE-CIX North America.
“The strategic positioning of its U.S. interconnect hub enables Epsilon to provide customers with high-speed international connectivity as well as access to a wide range of cloud and IX providers,” stated Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO, Epsilon. “We are excited to enter into this next phase of development and to unlock the geographic advantages that 1025Connect and NJFX offer.”
Epsilon enables on-demand wavelength and Ethernet into top Manhattan interconnect hubs over 10G and 100G wavelength services. The company will enable two diverse routes into Manhattan from its Point of Presence (PoP) at 1025Connect, including one 111 8th Ave and another at 60 Hudson. This will bypass expensive and crowded fiber paths, while providing carriers with different routes for Latin American and transatlantic traffic in and out of the U.S. without having to go through New York. This plan provides a more redundant and competitive and international connectivity solution specially designed to meet the needs of the cloud generation.
