A Diverse, Redundant Location for Connectivity
Virginia Beach offers strategic distance from the New York, New Jersey and Florida cable landing sites. Subsea cables such as MAREA and Dunant benefit from this diverse path to the European mainland, increasing the resilience of the East Coast’s infrastructure, lowering latency with European Internet hubs such as Paris and Marseille and decreasing industry dependency on New York and New Jersey’s congested infrastructure.
Meanwhile, BRUSA fulfills the need for a diverse path outside of Florida by utilizing Virginia Beach as a diverse hub to Caribbean and Latin American regions, bypassing the NAP of the Americas and providing direct connectivity to Ashburn at lower latencies.
Strategic Proximity that Averts Congestion
Mid-Atlantic subsea cables landing in Virginia Beach benefit from proximity to Data Center Alley/Northern Virginia and provide this popular data center region with a redundant path leveraging connection to both Ashburn and surrounding cities via multiple terrestrial networks.
Virginia Beach’s strategic location also allows route traffic to go north, south, and west, provisioning access along the I-95 corridor (Richmond) to Boydton, Columbus, Charlotte, Atlanta, and more.
A Thriving Local Ecosystem
Beyond its communications infrastructure, Virginia Beach — the second largest port on the East Coast — has proved itself as a robust hub for industry and commerce:
- Hampton Roads has 9 military installations, including 3 joint-base complexes that span multiple locations.
- All 5 branches of the military have a significant presence within the region. The market is home to the largest naval operations base in the world.
- Dominion Energy™ recently completedthe installation of the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) demonstration project. The undertaking consists of two 6MW wind turbines located approximately 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach that will power 3,000 homes and produce valuable research and development for stakeholders.
- Hampton Roads is home to the largest shipbuilding market in the United States
- More than 50 medical complanies working in conjunction with renowned healthcare systems and 8 universities, 4 community colleges and abundant technical schools.
