C&W Networks Selects Cologix To Unlock Traditional Connections Between North And South America
Cologix’s Data Center is the Only Location in Jacksonville to Enable Access to All of the Subsea Cable Networks
Cologix™, a network neutral interconnection and data center company, announced today that C&W Networks, a subsidiary of Cable & Wireless Communications, (C&W), one of the largest full service communications and entertainment providers in the Caribbean and Latin America region, has invested in the most advanced data center in its region by deploying a Point of Presence (PoP) in Cologix’s JAX1 data center in Jacksonville (Florida) to further enhance C&W Networks' ongoing commitment in offering customers multiple routes for their traffic ecosystem and a robust industry leading network. Through their deployment in Cologix’s Meet-Me-Room, C&W Networks can connect peers and customers to both their subsea and terrestrial networks. Last year, C&W Networks announced it was a member of the Pacific and Caribbean Cable System (PCCS) operating a 3,700 mile subsea cable system with its landing in the United States directly in Jacksonville. The submarine cable connects Aruba, Colombia, Curacao, Ecuador, Panama, Puerto Rico, the British Virgin Islands and Tortola, and then terminates in Jacksonville, Florida.
Cologix operates the most connected data center and the Meet-Me-Room (JAX1) in the 421 W. Church carrier hotel. Cologix’s JAX1 facility offers connectivity to 30+ LECS, MSOs, backbone networks, regional fiber networks, long haul dark fiber network, ISPs, content providers and cloud service providers. Cologix recently connected JAX1 to its enterprise grade data center at 4800 Spring Park Rd, JAX2, via a diverse dark fiber ring. The combined data center platform provides networks direct access to the largest and growing set of enterprises in the region and significant space and power capacity for growth.
“Jacksonville is gaining a reputation as one of the key peering and interconnection points in North America providing cross-border opportunities and diversity which are important in network design. Our customers are recognizing that Jacksonville is part of another regional alternative for traffic between North and South America. We are very proud to be the central and only hub in the region connecting all of the subsea cables and major network providers to each other,” stated Graham Williams, chief operating officer, Cologix.
C&W Networks is a wholesale telecommunications service provider that offers broadband, IP capacity and a growing portfolio of managed services and integrated solutions to global, regional and local telecom carriers, TV cable companies, Internet Service Providers and Network Integrators. C&W Networks operates the largest subsea multi-ring, fibre-optic network throughout the greater Caribbean, Central American and Andean region along with the most comprehensive fully meshed MPLS network in the region.
“PCCS is our fourth international submarine cable landing in the United States and our third in Florida,” stated Paul Scott, President of C&W Networks. The deployment through Cologix in Jacksonville enables us to offer even greater route diversity, redundancy and interconnection to our customers which further enables their business to expand and grow. Mr. Scott further states that “The Cologix facility provides us an ideal exchange and peering platform that is strategically diverse from our established gateways in South Florida and the Caribbean.”
