Hibernia Atlantic Cable Now Carrying in Excess of 220 Gbps

The Hibernia Atlantic cable system, which runs redundant rings between Dublin, Manchester, London, New York, Halifax, Montreal and Boston, is now carrying in excess of 220 Gbps of traffic -- the equivalent of twenty-two 10 Gbps wavelenghts. Hibernia Atlantic reports that this growth is unprecedented in the history of trans-Atlantic networks. The capacity has been largely leased to household names in the communications and financial sectors, including international PTT's, ISP's, content providers, global investment banks and other Fortune 500 entities.
