Windstream Wholesale boosts fiber presence at NJFX

Windstream Wholesale is fortifying its fiber transport network at NJFX’s Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation campus, located at the cable landing station in Wall, NJ.

“What Windstream Wholesale offers at the NJFX colocation campus is a reliable, high-quality option for organizations coming in internationally, looking for connectivity options in the U.S,” commented Joe Scattareggia, president of Windstream Wholesale. “This newest project is an overbuild of a system with newer, updated technology. As a more cost-effective and efficient solution, our customers will now have even greater access to the cable landing station in Wall, NJ. We are building a diverse path—particularly the Ashburn route, which avoids the busy Philadelphia metro—along with an upgrade of existing services, with increased and accelerated installation time frames,” stated Scattareggia.

Windstream Wholesale offers protected backbone network services, along with a portfolio of data, cloud and managed services.

NJFX’s facility is strategically located where subsea cables from the U.S., Europe and South America meet at the United States’ easternmost edge.

Windstream Wholesale can further support their North American network with highly valuable services from NJFX’s Tier 3 facility while also offering a route that bypasses New York City traffic that more efficiently connects to in-demand locations, such as Miami, Atlanta, Denver, Ashburn, Chicago, Dallas, Columbus and Los Angeles.

NJFX said it also allows Windstream Wholesale to provide services to the federal, financial and the carrier community with direct access to subsea cables—typically restricted in a cable landing station—within a non-competitive, secure and closed environment.

“Carriers and service providers are now realizing that they need to position themselves to meet the challenge of increased capabilities and capacities for themselves, as well as their end users. NJFX is helping to make this possible,” confirmed Gil Santaliz, founder and CEO of NJFX.

Aqua Comms and Epsilon join NJFX landing station

NJFX, the first colocation and data centre campus to be situated at a cable landing station, announced the addition of Aqua Comms DAC, operator of Ireland's first dedicated subsea network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London, and Epsilon Telecommunications, a privately owned global communications provider, to its connectivity ecosystem.

With the addition of Aqua Comms, NJFX customers are able to diversify their connectivity options to key European hubs, bypassing legacy bandwidth restrictions within the U.S. Under the agreement, Aqua Comms has deployed a point of presence (PoP) within NJFX's colocation campus, allowing NJFX customers to directly access the carrier's suite of services without incurring cross connect fees.

In addition, Epsilon and Aqua Comms have partnered to deploy Infiny by Epsilon, an on-demand connectivity platform, within the NJFX facility. As part of the partnership Aqua Comms will use the Cloud Link eXchange (CloudLX) module of Infiny to interconnect new services arriving into and leaving the NJFX campus.

NJFX (New Jersey Fiber Exchange), claiming to be the only colocation campus sited at a cable landing station and offering carrier neutral data centre capabilities, provides direct access to multiple subsea cable systems that interconnect North America, Europe, South America and the Caribbean.

Epsilon is a cloud-centric network service provider, extending carrier grade connectivity services to communications and cloud ecosystems. The company offers networking capabilities that combine on-demand infrastructure, automation, web-based portals and APIs designed to enable global connectivity.

Aqua Comms DAC is the owner and operator of the trans-Atlantic cable AEConnect and the Irish Sea cable CeltixConnect-1, and has a strategy of building, acquiring or merging with subsea cable networks to provide networking solutions to the media, content provider and IT company sectors.

NJFX Completes Tier 3 Colocation Campus by the Shore

NJFX has completed the third and final phase of its Tier 3, carrier neutral facility linking the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean. The third phase of construction includes a brand new 64,800-square-foot colocation facility, which could accommodate compute-heavy and content-rich applications that not only require a diverse carrier ecosystem, but also robust power density. In North America, NJFX has seven United States backhaul providers preparing to serve private fiber backhaul to cities across country, all while bypassing New York City and other legacy infrastructure.

The completion of Phase III coincides with NJFX’s powering of its first customer cage that uses the company’s 432 tie cable to provide ubiquitous connectivity across the NJFX campus and its Cable Landing Station (CLS) Meet Me Room. Moving forward, carriers across the United States will begin the process of interconnecting the NJFX campus with their self-managed fiber cables, using the NJFX 8 POE’s designed to support well over 300 varying terrestrial and subsea fiber cables, thereby allowing on and off ramps between South America, Europe and the Caribbean via its Atlantic Ocean gateway.

NJFX said its fully-built colocation campus now offers capacity for 1,000 cabinet equivalents with power densities up to 20kW/cabinet load.

“2016 was an outstanding year for NJFX,” states Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of NJFX. “We launched the facility in September and since then have developed key strategic partnerships with a multitude of networks and successfully completed our data center commissioning. As we head into 2017, we look forward to further developing our campus’ ecosystem, one of the most robust and diverse in the market.”

New Jersey Fiber Exchange Builds Tier 3 Colocation on the Shore

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.

New Jersey Fiber Exchange Deploys Coriant Groove DCI

The New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) is deploying the Coriant Groove G30 DCI Platform in its carrier-neutral colocation facility.

NJFX is a Tier 3, carrier neutral colocation campus that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, South America, Europe and the Caribbean meet. The 64,800-square-foot data center facility provides direct connectivity to international submarine cable systems via private backhaul solutions.

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.
