Last month, Windstream Wholesale announced our platinum sponsorship of the New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) “Tier 3 by the Subsea Phase II Launch” – a grand opening of this new 64,800 square foot, Tier 3, carrier neutral facility in Wall Township, NJ.
If the NJFX name sounds familiar, it might be because of this January 2016 press release, announcing our deployment of the first direct connection between our Ashburn, Va., Point-of-Presence (PoP) and NJFX’s Meet-Me Room at the Tata Communications’ Cable Landing Station. As large-scale enterprise organizations and wholesale customers – including other carriers, as well as content providers, cable and other network operators – continue to drive the surging demand for direct, secure connectivity to cloud resources, our alliance with NJFX provides connectivity options that meet the needs of both domestic and international customers. Check out this quick video for more on how this works.
VIP guests at the September 21st event were treated to:
Walk-throughs of the NJFX facility
The opportunity to mingle with Mario Andretti, one of only two racing drivers to win races in Formula One, IndyCar, World SportsCar and NASCAR, and Ottis Jerome “O.J.” Anderson, New York Giants legend and Super Bowl MVP
A virtual reality experience, providing the adrenaline rush of racing at speeds of 220 MPH in a Formula One race car
With almost 200 most influential industry thought leaders and analysts in attendance, Windstream Wholesale was honored to participate as a platinum sponsor of the event. For more on our alliance with NJFX, check out this short video or contact your Windstream Wholesale representative.
