New Jersey Fiber Exchange, a data center consulting and colocation, announced a new U.S.-based data center facility.
The Tier III data center facility, which is expected to be opened in 2016, will focus on providing connectivity to international submarine cable systems. The company will target carriers, enterprises, carrier-neutral operators and cable companies.
NJFX has partnered with Tata Communications to provide colocation and other data center services to global enterprises and carriers at the East Coast-based facility.
“We are building a data center that will serve as a network interconnection point at the eastern most edge of the United States to enable companies to design and construct the most efficient network for their business and ensure the delivery of high-bandwidth applications to serve end-customers,” said Gil Santaliz, founder and managing member, NJFX.
Carriers and enterprises using the NJFX location will also have access to Tata Communications’ global connectivity to connect to certain locations around the world. Over 24 percent of the world’s Internet routes use Tata Communications’ network.
