NJFX Wins 2018 Global Carrier Award for “Best North American Project”

London – October 25, 2018NJFX, the only CLS colocation campus in the U.S offering Tier 3, carrier neutral data center capabilities with direct access to TGN 1 & 2, Seaborn and HAVFRUE/AEC2 (2019) subsea cable systems, is thrilled to accept the 2018 Global Carrier Award for Best North American Project.

The Best North American Project award recognizes NJFX’s innovative approach in helping carriers strategically diversify connectivity options to key hubs across North America, Europe, and South America, bypassing legacy chokepoints.

By naming NJFX for Best North American Project, Capacity Media recognizes NJFX’s campus expansion – adding 48 acres to the current footprint and a plan for an 80,000 square foot data center and disaster recovery space adjacent to the existing NJFX facility. The expansion will allow for NJFX to improve on its route diversity and benefit the telecoms marketplace by allowing more tenants to take advantage of the unique colocation and interconnection capabilities of NJFX. The space will also be able to accommodate future independent cable landing stations and/or independent data centers.

“With a total of three subsea cables, soon to be five, coming into its colocation campus, NJFX is rivalling any location in terms of having a vast amount of subsea cable capacity in one place, and a vibrant and growing ecosystem of submarine cables,” comments Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “NJFX does something that no other facility can: provide a viable alternative for carriers and large organizations to design resilient network architectures and further ensure global networks stay operational.”

The Global Carrier Awards are a highlight of  Capacity Europe 2018, an event uniting 400+ industry leaders from across the international carrier community. As the largest carrier event in Europe, Capacity Europe is the annual meeting for carriers, data centers, IXPs, ISPs, cloud & content providers and infrastructure vendors to partner, trade and renew business.
