NJFX confirms that Verizon Communications is deploying a new network point of presence (PoP) at its cable landing station (CLS) campus, providing access to Verizon's global network.

With its presence at the NJFX CLS, Verizon and its customers will be able to directly interconnect with subsea capacity services across the Atlantic to Ireland, Denmark and Northern Europe.

"We are especially pleased that Verizon has chosen to establish a point of presence at our CLS colocation campus, as one of three current backhaul providers at NJFX with underground fibre for its long-haul routes," said 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 US termination options.

“World-class communications providers such as Verizon, as well as subsea cable operators, enterprises and cloud providers within our CLS ecosystem, recognise that NJFX provides a nexus for collaboration where they can build out new and reinforce existing networks with diverse routes while extending their global reach."

Located 64 feet above sea level and Category 5 hurricane resistant, the NJFX CLS campus facility offers direct access to multiple independent subsea cable systems, including AEC-2, TGN1, TGN2, and Seabras.

Through this expanded network presence, customers can now access Verizon's global network at NJFX and interconnect with these four subsea cable systems to Europe and South America.

In addition, European-based clients can transport data to Verizon's PoP at NJFX and extend their reach to major US metro markets.

"At Verizon, we believe that the network is an engine for business growth and innovation. In order to best serve the needs of our customers, we must continue to provide reliable, high performing, secure global connectivity that flexes and scales to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Lynn Smullen (pictured), division vice president of sales at Verizon Partner Solutions,  

“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."
