Video: NJFX - A Carrier-Neutral, Meet-Me-Room in a Cable Landing Station

Gil Santaliz, CEO of NJFX, explains how this strategic position creates a convenient juncture for sub-sea networks to link up with fiber backhaul operators, resulting in pricing disruptions for transatlantic capacity.

The facility went live in September 2015 with 9 customers in the Tata landing station. Three more backhaul fiber providers then joined. Previously, subsea capacity was not available directly from the landing station. It was brought out for you to an in-land location such as 60 Hudson. NJFX says its position really disrupts that model, allowing purchasers of transatlantic capacity to go directly to the source.
