New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) officially commissioned its new 64,800-aquare-foot, Tier 3, carrier-neutral data center that intersects where subsea cables from around the globe meet on the New Jersey coast.
NJFX has operated the exclusive carrier-neutral Meet-Me-Room (MMR) inside Tata Communications cable landing station (CLS) in Wall, New Jersey for the past year. The new facility builds this out to a data center campus with 250 fiber conduits connecting the new data center to the MMR.
NJFX said its key advantages include:
- Direct Connectivity to leading service providers within Tata’s CLS and secured express routes with several facility-based carriers
- Direct Access to robust international capacity and the availability of Tier 1 ISP services with multiple fiber-based providers offering regional, national and independent international networks
- Interconnection Options, at the cable head-end, for service providers, enterprises, carrier-neutral operators and cable companies without recurring cross-connect fees
- Direct Peering and the ability to design high-capacity, low latency networks directly to and from the cable head, minimizing the need for traditional backhaul connectivity. This removes a detour to New York City, eliminates choke points and lowers cost and latency.
