Gil Santaliz of NJFX to Discuss Submarine and Terrestrial Infrastructural Developments in the Caribbean
New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation facility that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, South America, Europe and the Caribbean meet, announces today that its Founder and Managing Member, Gil Santaliz, will participate on a panel at Capacity Caribbean 2016, taking place on February 17-18, 2016 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Now in its 10th year, Capacity Caribbean continues to attract over 200 people from more than 30 different countries worldwide to discuss new projects and developments in the Caribbean wholesale telecommunications market.
On February 17 at 2:15 PM, Mr. Santaliz will partake in a panel discussion titled “Infrastructural Developments – Is the Region One Step Closer to Meeting the Demand of Capacity?” Joined by Hunter Newby, Founder and CEO of Allied Fiber; Erick Contag, COO of GlobeNet; and Filip Van Den Bossche, CEO of Guyacom, the panel will examine the increasing need for capacity in the Caribbean. Through analysis of the current subsea cable projects and upcoming announcements for new developments, the group will discuss the necessary steps being taken to satisfy that demand.
“Within this past year, there has been substantial growth in the subsea cable industry. We have seen a resurgence in the investment of transatlantic subsea cable systems, evidenced by the recent Seaborn Networks and Aqua Comms announcements highlighting route and cable diversity,” states Mr. Santaliz. “This growth has been driven by an increased demand for capacity that the industry has to meet through development and further investment in subsea cable systems.”
As the first “Tier 3 by the Subsea,” carrier-neutral colocation facility located within Tata Communications’ international Cable Landing Station (CLS), NJFX provides direct interconnection options at the cable head-end to service providers, enterprises, carrier-neutral operators, and cable companies. The development of the new edge generates the ability for customers to take control of their networks instead of being forced to rely on traditional backhaul solutions. NJFX offers tenants highly resilient, low-latency global connectivity to more than 240 countries and territories, as well as 99.7% of the world’s GDP by way of one of the largest and most advanced subsea fiber networks.
