Tiscali Expand its Network to Over 100 Gbps with Hibernia

Tiscali International Network (TINet), a global carrier dedicated exclusively to the wholesale IP-MPLS market, has chosen Hibernia Atlantic to deliver numerous 10 Gbps wavelengths of capacity to and from Montreal, Dublin, London, Frankfurt, New York City, Ashburn, Chicago and other major metro areas across North America and Europe. The companies said this mammoth increase in capacity reflects wholesale customers' growing needs to deploy IP-based, next generation services and applications over a secure and global cable network.

TINet is one of the first companies worldwide to have a truly global multi-service carrier network in actual production that implements a full suite of service-enabling protocols, including MPLS CoS, IPv6, Ethernet private lines and Multicasting. Hibernia Atlantic operates the only undersea cable that crosses directly from Ireland to Canada and the U.S, thereby avoiding any one single point of failure, landing point and backhaul route, such as in and around New York and London.
