NJFX, a Cable Landing Station (CLS) co-location campus offering Tier 3, carrier-neutral data center capabilities, yesterday said that Verizon Communications (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ) is deploying a new network Point-of-Presence at its CLS campus.
“We are especially pleased that Verizon has chosen to establish a Point-of-Presence at our CLS co-location campus, as one of three current backhaul providers at NJFX with underground fiber for its long-haul routes,” states Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “It has always been our vision to develop NJFX to become North America’s preeminent international hub for subsea communications, interconnecting many international carriers across three continents with multiple secure and reliable backhaul and U.S. termination options.”
Verizon will have the ability to directly interconnect with subsea capacity services across the Atlantic to Ireland, Denmark and Northern Europe. The NJFX CLS campus facility offers direct access to multiple independent subsea cable systems, including AEC-2, TGN1, TGN2, and Seabras. Customers can now access Verizon’s global network at NJFX and interconnect with these four subsea cable systems to Europe and South America. European-based clients can transport data to Verizon’s PoP at NJFX and extend their reach to major U.S. metro markets.
NJFX offers access to underground fiber on a long-haul network from multiple backhaul providers for direct and diverse connectivity to core U.S. markets, including Ashburn, Chicago, Dallas, North Carolina, Philadelphia, and other cities, thereby bypassing common points of network failure such as New York City, Northern New Jersey, and Miami.
“The deployment of a new Verizon network Point-of-Presence at NJFX will expand our clients’ transoceanic and terrestrial connectivity options, presenting new business opportunities both intercontinentally and across North America,” said Lynn Smullen, Division Vice President of Sales at Verizon Partner Solutions.
