The new connection to NJFX's Carrier-Neutral Meet-Me-Room enhances connectivity options in the U.S. for Lightower’s domestic and international customer base
WALL, NJ – October 26, 2016 - New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation campus that intersects where subsea cables from the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean meet, announces Lightower Fiber Networks, the premier provider of all-fiber, high-performance networking solutions delivered over its own network, as the latest network to join its robust ecosystem. By establishing a Point of Presence (PoP) in NJFX’s cable landing campus in Wall Township, New Jersey, Lightower can now extend the reach of its all-fiber solutions for international clients seeking enhanced connectivity to major markets in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest U.S.
Lightower is the first all-fiber, high-performance networking solutions provider to establish lit services in NJFX’s Tier-3, carrier-neutral facility. The provider will be turning up dark fiber to Ashburn, Virginia, a must-have location for domestic and international customers no longer wishing to rely on traditional backhaul options. The PoP provides Lightower customers with reliable and diverse connectivity options in a highly-secure facility, offering a new edge and greater control of their networks.
“NJFX actively seeks partners, such as Lightower, that share the same customer-first mindset and place custom solutions and world-class support at the forefront," states Gil Santaliz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for NJFX. “The range of Lightower’s network coverage throughout major metro and emerging markets, and the depth of its portfolio of high-performance, all-fiber networking solutions will boost the connectivity options available not only to international businesses requiring enhanced U.S. reach, but also to NJFX’s fast-growing ecosystem.”
“Lightower's PoP at NJFX helps expand the options we can offer to our own customers, while also bringing Lightower solutions to NJFX customers,” explains Doug Turtz, Senior Vice President Enterprise Sales, Lightower. “Now, all customers who reside or interconnect in this new facility have access to the complete suite of Lightower’s all-fiber solutions, including dark fiber, Ethernet and waves to 100G, and access to more than 22,000 service locations.”
NJFX’s “Tier 3 by the Subsea” colocation campus provides the unique opportunity to interconnect directly at the cable head to service providers, enterprises, carrier-neutral operators, and cable companies. This new edge empowers customers to take control of their networks by no longer being required to rely on traditional backhaul solutions or traverse the congested New York City landscape. Through its managed Meet-Me Room within Tata Communications’ international CLS, NJFX offers tenants highly resilient, low-latency global connectivity to more than 240 countries and territories, as well as 99.7 percent of the world’s GDP by way of one of the largest and most advanced subsea fiber networks.
