Telia Carrier deploys new network PoP at NJFX

News

Telia Carrier deployed a new point-of-presence (PoP) delivering multi-terabit capacity at the New Jersey Fibre Exchange (NJFX) Cable Landing Station (CLS) colocation campus.

“We designed our architecture at NJFX to support high capacity and huge demand ahead [of] expanded network reach and resiliency,” said Staffan Göjeryd, CEO, Telia Carrier. “At the NJFX CLS, we offer maximum flexibility and extensions into the rest of the Telia Carrier global network and [we’re] tying it into the recently announced expansion of the East Coast corridor where we added two new routes between New Jersey and Northern Virginia.”

By leveraging the Havfrue/AEC2 subsea cable system located at NJFX, Telia Carrier customers can now reach Denmark directly and transit the Nordics, Baltics, and can access four fibre routes going into Russia. Organisations located at NJFX can access the Seabras cable system with direct routes into South America.

“Telia Carrier’s terabit scale capacity expansion into NJFX is a perfect embodiment of NJFX’s mission to enable the resilient global connectivity and capabilities for our customers and carrier partners,” said Gil Santaliz, CEO, NJFX.

“Enterprises, financials, and service provider customers can now connect directly into Telia Carrier’s network and access a seamless network solution with terrestrial backhaul routes that reach key points of presence across the East Coast and beyond.”

In addition, financial organisations located at NJFX can leverage Telia Carrier’s connectivity linking subsea cables to financial data centres throughout New Jersey and New York. This offers the ability to extend capacity from the NJFX CLS campus and access unique routes bypassing Manhattan and Northern New Jersey.
