Windstream Wholesale expands to Equinix NY5 Secaucus

Windstream Wholesale is establishing a presence at the Equinix NY5 International Business Exchange (IBX) data center in Secaucus, New Jersey.

Windstream Wholesale will offer fully diverse 10 and 100 Gig Waves to the ecosystem of companies operating within Equinix’s New York metro data center campus, which offers a highly scalable platform with more than 90 network service providers.

Windstream Wholesale said expects to be built into the Equinix facility by July. However, urgent network capacity needs continue to grow, so, in the meantime, Windstream has provided a creative temporary solution for one of its established partners, Seaborn Networks, a leading developer-owner-operator of subsea fiber optic cable systems. Windstream delivered four 100-Gig waves from Ashburn, Va., to the international landing station in Wall Township, N.J., to meet Seaborn’s immediate expansion needs. When Windstream’s build is complete at the NY5 IBX, it will move two of those waves to Secaucus.

“We are pleased with Windstream Wholesale’s new presence at Equinix’s New York area data center campus. We have been partnering for some time and this new, diverse route between Secaucus and Ashburn will enhance and enrich our ability to serve our customers through Windstream’s network in U.S.,” said Michel Marcelino, senior vice president and head of Latin America for Seaborn. “I look forward to expanding our connectivity together, offering resilient services for our customers both domestically and internationally.”

“Windstream Wholesale continues to expand our data center portfolio with our presence at the Equinix NY5 IBX, which provides diverse, low-latency access to a massive electronic trading ecosystem and major cloud service providers,” said Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Windstream Wholesale. “We’re excited that this location has enabled us to enhance our partnership with Seaborn Networks, and our ability to meet their expansion needs even before our build is complete speaks to the creativity that we bring to client relationships.”

“Windstream Wholesale is a valued participant in the ecosystem of world-class providers offering their services on Platform Equinix®,” said Adam Janota, senior director of business development at Equinix. “Windstream’s 100 Gbps Wavelength service offers a strong option for the core backbone capacity needs of Equinix customers seeking low latency connectivity between our Secaucus, N.J., and Ashburn, Va., data center campuses, providing a diverse path between the New York and Washington, D.C., metros that avoids Manhattan data centers. The more than 500 businesses operating at Equinix’s Secaucus data center campus will also benefit from Windstream’s direct access to Seaborn Networks’ sub-sea capacity.”

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.

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.
