NJFX is building the first Tier III carrier-neutral colocation facility that intersects where subsea cables from the U.S. and Europe meet at the eastern most edge of the United States.  The first express submarine cable between the U.S. and Sao Paulo is expected be ready in 2016 and land at this facility.  Anticipated to go live in 2016, the network interconnection point provides service providers, enterprises, carrier-neutral operators and cable companies with direct interconnection options at the cable-head without recurring costs on cross-connects.  The new edge allows service providers and enterprise companies to have more control of their networks rather than rely on traditional backhaul solutions.  Service providers and enterprises using the NJFX location will also have access to Tata Communications’ global connectivity, built on one of the world’s largest and most advanced global subsea fiber networks. Over 24% of the world’s Internet traffic uses Tata Communications’ network.

NJFX is also the exclusive, carrier-neutral Meet-Me Room (MMR) operator inside Tata Communications’ international Cable Landing Station (CLS), located in Wall Township, New Jersey.  The NJFX MMR offers customers a high level of connectivity to leading service providers that already maintain an established presence within the CLS, while providing NJFX data center tenants direct access to Tata Communications’ industry-leading Wavelength, Ethernet, MPLS, DIA and Cloud Services.

Companies interested in learning more about the connectivity benefits available by collocating at NJFX and building into NJFX’s carrier-neutral MMR are urged to schedule a meeting with Gil Santaliz at Capacity North America. To request a meeting, please email NJFX@imillerpr.com.
