NJFX says that UPIX Networks of Brazil has established a connection into the company’s Tier 3 carrier neutral cable landing station colocation campus in New Jersey. The connection provides another option for those seeking connectivity between the U.S. and Brazil as well as other countries in Latin America and elsewhere that UPIX serves.

It has points of presence in more than 15 countries and connects more than 400 cities; key hub locations include Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Fortaleza, Santiago, Miami, New York, Ashburn, Los Angeles, San Jose, and Amsterdam. The company works with 200 connected telecom partners to offer services with capacity from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps over DWDM and metro Ethernet network resources.

“When you enter a new market, it’s very important to have the right partners, and we have found a strong, collaborative partner in NJFX,” commented Daniel Oda, COO/CCO of UPIX Networks. “All the major carriers of the world are at NJFX, and so it not only serves as a strategic point of presence that strengthens our network density, but also offers our customers multiple, diverse capacity options into the New York metro area.”

“UPIX shares our passion for innovation, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome them into our telecommunications, cloud and subsea ecosystem,” added Felix Seda, general manager for NJFX. “Our customers will now have access to UPIX’s end-to-end network services including point-to-point connectivity and last-mile fiber throughout Brazil via the Seabras-1, Monet, and AMX-1 subsea cables.”
