Interconnecting LATAM with the Cross-Continental Triangle, NJFX and DE-CIX Create a Crucial and Strategic LATAM Hub

NJFX and DE-CIX to Discuss Evolution of Multilateral Peering at Capacity LATAM 2020

Wall, NJ – March 10, 2020 - NJFX, the only Cable Landing Station (CLS) colocation campus in the U.S offering Tier 3, carrier-neutral data center capabilities, is continuously expanding the reach of its global ecosystem into the LATAM market.

Most recently, DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator, established an interconnection peering point of presence (PoP) at NJFX, with a stated goal of making LATAM one of the focus regions for networks to be connected via NJFX to DE-CIX New York. With DE-CIX’s new PoP at NJFX on the US east coast, the two companies have created a cross-continental triangle that connects North America, South America and Europe. The leadership team at DE-CIX chose NJFX because of its diverse terrestrial and subsea options for connectivity, allowing DE-CIX to reach new customers and penetrate new markets.

Providing premium interconnection services, DE-CIX operates more than 20 carrier and data center-neutral Internet Exchanges in Europe, India, the Middle East, Asia, and the U.S. The PoP at NJFX will provide access for customers to exchange traffic so that their data can traverse directly to regions across the Atlantic, up and down the east coast corridor, as well as routes which can bypass heavily congested southern Florida on the way to LATAM.

“By enabling true diversity from Florida as a point of failure, NJFX has become a strategic east coast hub for LATAM connectivity to and from the U.S. and Europe. With four subsea and seven terrestrial routes, our customers and partners have ample diverse options, with access to unprecedented capacity,” comments Gil Santaliz, Founder and CEO of NJFX.

Santaliz and Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International will expand on this idea as part of a panel at Capacity LATAM entitled “REGIONAL PEERING UPDATE: Evaluating the Evolution of Multilateral Peering in Latin America and Discussing New Updates.”

Due to its growing network density and subsequent connectivity options, NJFX has become a strategic hub allowing greater flexibility to global providers placing their content. For more information, please visit www.njfx.net.
