Tier 3 colocation campus operator New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) says it now offers connectivity to the fiber-optic network of Lightower Fiber Networks. Lightower is the first all-fiber network services provider to deliver lit services via a point of presence (PoP) in NJFX's newly opened cable landing campus in Wall Township, NJ (see "New Jersey Fiber Exchange set to open Tier 3 by the Subsea colocation facility").
Lightower offers fiber-based services in major markets in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest U.S. The company is in the midst of a footprint expansion project, including establishing dark fiber infrastructure to Ashburn, VA. Establishing a PoP at the NJFX "Tier 3 by the Subsea" colocation campus offers NJFX customers access to this footprint, while affording Lightower customers access to the submarine cable landing facilities to which NJFX connects.
"NJFX actively seeks partners, such as Lightower, that share the same customer-first mindset and place custom solutions and world-class support at the forefront," states Gil Santaliz, founder and CEO for NJFX. "The range of Lightower's network coverage throughout major metro and emerging markets, and the depth of its portfolio of high-performance, all-fiber networking solutions, will boost the connectivity options available not only to international businesses requiring enhanced U.S. reach, but also to NJFX's fast-growing ecosystem."
"Lightower's PoP at NJFX helps expand the options we can offer to our own customers, while also bringing Lightower solutions to NJFX customers," adds Doug Turtz, senior vice president, enterprise sales, at Lightower. "Now, all customers who reside or interconnect in this new facility have access to the complete suite of Lightower's all-fiber solutions, including dark fiber, Ethernet and waves to 100G, and access to more than 22,000 service locations."
