NJFX has announced the addition of Aqua Comms and privately-owned global communications service provider Epsilon Telecommunications, to its ever-growing connectivity ecosystem of global carriers, network operators, enterprises, cloud providers, and internet exchanges.

With the introduction of Aqua Comms, the operator of Ireland’s first dedicated subsea fibre-optic network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London, NJFX customers can strategically diversify their connectivity options to key European hubs, bypassing legacy chokepoints within the US.

“We are excited to welcome Aqua Comms as a strategic addition to our community,” said Gil Santaliz, founder and CEO of NJFX. “What makes NJFX unique is its carrier neutral subsea capabilities, so customers have options when choosing which cables move their data from our campus to key landing points in Europe.”

Nigel Bayliff, CEO of Aqua Comms, added: “With Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption offering, all data Aqua Comms carries remains secure and safeguarded from PoP to PoP. Establishing a PoP in the NJFX colocation campus grants our customers access to a diverse and growing ecosystem of carriers and service providers.” 

Epsilon and Aqua Comms have partnered to deploy Infiny by Epsilon - an on-demand connectivity platform - within the NJFX facility, and Aqua Comms will use the Cloud Link eXchange (CloudLX) module of Infiny to rapidly interconnect new services in and out of the NJFX campus.

"The CloudLX module of Infiny accelerates access to global cloud service providers and creates unique value for NJFX’s network operator tenants,” commented Carl Roberts, chief commercial officer of Epsilon.
