NJFX, the first and only colocation campus to sit at a cable landing station in the U.S and offer Tier 3, carrier neutral data center capabilities, announces its CEO, Gil Santaliz will be a keynote speaker at the Submarine Networks World Europe 2018 conference to be held in London, UK on February 20 - 21, 2018.  Santaliz with join other industry experts on the keynote panel entitled ‘The Evolution of the Subsea Industry.’ The panel will discuss the changing subsea cable business models, demand drivers, and how new technologies such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and cloud are changing the industry.

As North America’s preeminent international hub for subsea communications, NJFX serves as the interconnection for many international carriers with multiple predictable, private backhaul and U.S. termination options. An industry visionary, Santaliz is leading the paradigm shift in locating a Tier 3 colocation facility at the point where the cable systems make landfall.

“We are seeing the next generation of subsea deployments, the most since 2000, which will support the next 20 years,” comments Gil Santaliz, CEO for NJFX. “These new cables have a new financial model driven by the OTT’s with fewer carriers involved. Some carriers will be left to operate in the secondary market only. I look forward to speaking at Submarine Networks World Europe conference and discussing the changing dynamics and innovations that are spurred by this growth. NJFX’s unique Tier 3 colocation model allows us to address the requirements that subsea cable operators have for higher capacity, reliability, security, and flexible interconnection options to North America, South America and Europe.”
