Wall, NJ -- NJFX, a cable landing station colocation campus offering tier three, carrier-neutral data center capabilities, expanded into the Latin American market, it revealed today. Through partnerships with global digital infrastructure providers and collaboration with European-based NetIX, a carrier-class Ethernet exchange, clients now can use Tier 3 data center capabilities plus increased connectivity options in this larger geography.
Growing network density and connectivity options empowered NJFX to become a strategic hub between the Americas and Europe. The colocation facility provides access to the Seabras-1 subsea cable system, which links the U.S. directly with Brazil. This means enterprises can connect from NJFX to business hubs in Latin America and beyond.
The NJFX campus also will let businesses connect to Europe through NetIX's peering point-of-presence (PoP). The NetIX network currently connects more than 20 IXPs, serves 100-plus members, reaches nearly 5,000 direct peers in 28 data centers and delivers close to 500 Gbps of traffic. NetIX reach is extending from Europe to the U.S. and down to Latin America.
"NJFX has become a strategic east coast hub for LatAm connectivity to and from the U.S. and Europe, while providing true diversity from Florida as a point of failure," said Felix Seda, general manager at NJFX. "We are proud to have such strategic partnerships and further leverage abilities to provide Seabras-1 capacity to and from LatAm into the NJFX CLS campus, as well as IP transit services for local and international Internet breakout connectivity at NJFX and Sao Paolo."
Brazilian ISPs can ride on Seabras-1 capacity to NJFX, whereby they can interconnect with NetIX and use its European reach. In addition, NetIX can bring its peering infrastructure from Europe, into the U.S. and on to the LATAM market.
Deutsche Telekom just signed an infrastructure project with the Gigabit Region Stuttgart, home to 174 municipalities and almost 3 million people, one of many partnerships the German operator has inked in its bid to grow revenue and business.
Mobile and cable operators represented half the managed SD-WAN services market share in this fast-growing space, while other broadband providers such as ISPs and satellite operators also appeared on Vertical Systems Group's ranking.
By slashing subscriber pricing by more than $30 billion annually, Low Earth Orbit satellite companies led by Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk as well as OneWeb have the potential to usher in a whole new era of broadband.
In this insightful Light Reading radio show, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will outline the key service provider challenges, deployment considerations, next-gen Gigabit technologies, and service models to win market share in the rapidly growing MDU market.
The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.
The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.
In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.
Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
