Epsilon opens fiber network route from Ashburn to Europe via NJFX cable landing station

NJFX which operates a cable landing station (CLS) as part of a Tier 3 carrier neutral colocation campus, says that service provider Epsilon is using its facilities to launch a fiber network connectivity offering between Ashburn, VA, and Europe. The route is distinguished by its avoidance of New York City and the potential bottlenecks that can be experienced there, says NJFX.

NJFX which operates a cable landing station (CLS) as part of a Tier 3 carrier neutral colocation campus, says that service provider Epsilon is using its facilities to launch a fiber network connectivity offering between Ashburn, VA, and Europe. The route is distinguished by its avoidance of New York City and the potential bottlenecks that can be experienced there, says NJFX.

The new route is part of Epsilon’s Infiny software-defined networking (SDN) connectivity platform. Infiny offers on-demand connectivity through which users can turn up network services at any time via a web-based portal, their smartphone, or integrated APIs. Epsilon’s Global Network Fabric offers connections to more than 100 data centers in North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, says NJFX (see "Ekinops PM 200FRS02 FlexRate line module deployed in Epsilon greenfield network" as an example).

“The leadership role Epsilon has taken to support the global networking community is recognized as a critical connectivity infrastructure initiative; eliminating single points of failure like NYC and ensuring global traffic isn’t impacted by issues in the region,” states Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “NJFX’s innovative Tier 3 CLS ‘Clarity in Connectivity’ approach is now being introduced as the standard for North American financials and multinational enterprises to also fortify their network routes and eliminate single points of failure from the US national data hubs.”
