NJFX CEO Gil Santaliz has been in discussions with New Jersey officials about the merits of data center incentives, and is advocating for tax breaks that can make New Jersey more competitive with other leading markets.
New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX)
The New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) is a carrier-neutral colocation facility located near the shore, with access to subsea cable systems connecting both sides of the Atlantic. The campus consists of 2 parts: the meet-me room within the Tata Communication’s cable landing station, and the Tier 3 data center with the capability to support 1,000 customers.
Headquarters: Wall, NJ
A new trans-Atlantic cable carrying Facebook and Google traffic from Europe will land at the NJFX colocation campus in Wall, NJ, boosting its bid to make New Jersey a strategic landing point for the world’s subsea cables.
Colocation providers are building data centers at the sites where undersea fiber optic cables arrive in North America. It’s a new wrinkle in the evolution of edge computing.
