Zayo Group has expanded its presence at the NJFX CLS campus with the completion of two, diverse, underground, high-capacity fibre cables interconnecting the NJFX campus to Zayo's global network.

With an anchor point at NJFX, Zayo's new network infrastructure supports metro and long-haul solutions, both lit and dark, capable of transmitting hundreds of terabytes of data. In addition, the expansion also supports Zayo's Tier 1 IP solutions, offering customers global reach by interconnecting into four subsea cables including Havfrue/AEC-2, Seabras, TGN1 and TGN2.

"Zayo is a long-standing collaborator within the NJFX ecosystem and is well-known for delivering mission-critical bandwidth to support leading global companies," said Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX.

"We are pleased to host Zayo's expanded Point-of-Presence at the NJFX CLS, as it fortifies access to their dense metro networks and expansive long-haul fibre. Access to high-capacity networks is vitally critical for companies in order for them to leverage the latest in technology such as 5G, IoT, AV and more."

The two new pieces of fibre infrastructure gives Zayo's customers the ability to use the critical bandwidth needed to support today's technological innovations.

With a network spanning 13 million fibre miles and 126,000 route miles across 400 markets in the US, Canada and Western Europe, the company's expansion at NJFX CLS enables higher capacity and faster transmission.

"The quality, density and diversity of Zayo's network provides a significant advantage for customers at the NJFX CLS, one of North America's largest interconnection points," added Brad Kilbey, senior vice president of Zayo Networks, East Region.

"Our expanded presence at this unique facility underscores our commitment to supporting companies that are fuelling growth and innovation."
