Cross River Fiber completes route into NJFX

24 January 2018 | James Pearce


Cross River Fiber has completed its new latency-sensitive fibre route that connects to NJFX’s Tier 3 colocation campus in Wall Township, New Jersey.

The new route will offer enterprises and the international carrier community a robust interconnection option between the NJFX campus and financial exchanges and carrier hotels in both New York and New Jersey.

The completed fibre route deploys all new optical glass, as well as a path that is diverse from other legacy infrastructure options.

“We are excited to enable the global business community through our high-capacity, latency-sensitive and diverse network,” said Vincenzo Clemente, CEO of Cross River Fiber. 

“By providing purpose-built transport options between the NJFX campus and these important exchange points, we are enabling any enterprise who conducts critical business transactions domestically and abroad, effectively closing the loop between subsea transport and the NY-based interconnections that drive business.”

The route connects into NJFX’s 64,800-square foot purpose-built data centre, which offers direct access to multiple independent subsea cable systems that interconnect North America, Europe, and South America. 

“Cross River Fiber provides a key gateway to New York metro financial hubs, and we welcome them to our new Subsea Exchange ecosystem,” said Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. 

“This marketplace allows subsea operators and US fiber-based providers to interexchange their capacity, ensuring network diversity through transparency. Cross River Fiber shares our commitment to providing highly reliable infrastructure, which is paramount to keeping global networks and financials operating 24x7x365."
