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.
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
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.
