NJFX has announced the addition of Aqua Comms DAC (“Aqua Comms”), the operator of Ireland’s first dedicated subsea fibre-optic network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London, and Epsilon Telecommunications, a privately owned global communications service provider, to its ever-growing connectivity ecosystem. With the introduction of Aqua Comms, NJFX customers can strategically diversify their connectivity options to key European hubs, bypassing legacy chokepoints within the U.S.
Aqua Comms has deployed a Point of Presence (PoP) within NJFX’s colocation campus, allowing NJFX customers to directly access the carrier’s suite of services without incurring cross connect fees. Epsilon and Aqua Comms have partnered to deploy Infiny by Epsilon — an on-demand connectivity platform — within the NJFX facility, and Aqua Comms will use the Cloud Link eXchange (CloudLX) module of Infiny to rapidly interconnect new services in and out of the NJFX campus. Now, Aqua Comms’ customers can benefit from interconnecting with NJFX’s growing ecosystem of global carriers, network operators, enterprises, cloud providers, and internet exchanges.
“We are excited to welcome Aqua Comms as a strategic addition to our community,” says Gil Santaliz, founder and chief executive officer of NJFX. “What makes NJFX unique is its carrier neutral subsea capabilities, so customers have options when choosing which cables move their data from our campus to key landing points in Europe. Having Aqua Comms at our colocation campus enables customers to further diversify and plan their international connections with certainty and accuracy, eliminating any transport uncertainty.”
"The CloudLX module of Infiny accelerates access to global cloud service providers and creates unique value for NJFX’s network operator tenants,” comments Carl Roberts, chief commercial officer of Epsilon. “We have combined a track record of success and innovation with an on-demand connectivity platform that simplifies how users connect and grow their businesses. Additionally, Epsilon will offer its customers access to an increasing number of new connectivity options to leverage and scale their operations more effectively."
“Establishing a PoP in the NJFX colocation campus grants our customers access to a diverse and growing ecosystem of carriers and service providers,” adds Nigel Bayliff, Chief Executive Officer of Aqua Comms. “With Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption offering, all data Aqua Comms carries remains secure and safeguarded from PoP to PoP. Plus, NJFX’s strategic location enables us to bypass congested legacy New York City hubs, eliminate multiple points of failure and save our customers from facing hefty cross connect fees.”
