Windstream Wholesale is expanding its fibre transport network at NJFX’s Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation campus at the cable landing station in Wall, NJ.
By having a presence at NJFX’s facility which
is located where subsea cables from the US, Europe and South
America interconnect at the easternmost edge of the US, means
that the company can securely connect with global network
"What Windstream Wholesale offers at the NJFX colocation
campus is a reliable, high-quality option for organisations
coming in internationally, looking for connectivity options in
the US," said Joe Scattareggia, president of Windstream
Wholesale. "This new 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, resulting in
significantly service delivery."
In addition to its broad portfolio of fibre-optic transport
Software Defined Network Orchestrated Wavelengths (SDNow)
from Windstream Wholesale is the start of on-demand services,
accelerated deployments and improved customer experience.
This coupled with services from NJFX’s Tier 3
facility while also providing a North American route that
bypasses New York City traffic and efficiently connects to
locations such as: Miami, Atlanta, Denver, Ashburn, Chicago,
Dallas, Columbus and Los Angeles. The collaboration between the
two also allows for services to federal, financial and carrier
community with direct access to subsea cables, within a neutral
non-competitive and secure 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," added Gil
Santaliz, founder and CEO of NJFX.
