The Hibernia Express transatlantic cable is now ready for service.
The new 4,600km ultra low latency submarine cable connects Halifax, Nova Scotia to Slough, England and Cork, Ireland. It carries optical transport services up to 100Gbps speeds and is capable of 200Gbps service on select segments. The 6-fiber-pair cable is optimized for lowest latency performance, offering an unmatched roundtrip delay of sub-60 milliseconds on the New York to London route. It is engineered to potentially scale up to 400Gbps per circuit and up.
“The Hibernia Networks team has demonstrated an unwavering commitment towards completing the first transatlantic subsea cable in over a decade and we are thrilled to announce its official launch,” states Bjarni Thorvardarson, CEO of Hibernia Networks. “We are proud to have accomplished this transformational milestone, and more importantly, we are proud to deliver the lowest latency, highest performance capacity required to facilitate real-time access to information and content by the ever growing global communications community.”
- Hibernia Express utilizes a 6-fiber-pair submarine cable, with a portion of the fibers optimized for lowest latency and a portion optimized for 100X100 Gpbs design capacity. The total cross-sectional design capacity of the cable will be over 53 Tbps. Hibernia Express will initially launch with 100 Gbps transmission capacity using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform.
