Hibernia Upgrades Trans-Atlantic Cable to 100G with Ciena

Hibernia Networks is deploying Ciena's Programmable GeoMesh solution on its Trans-Atlantic cable system to enable rapid service provisioning.

The deployment includes Ciena’s GeoMesh submarine solution, including the 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, WaveLogic coherent optics and full ROADM. Together, these components lay the foundation for an OP network architecture that will enable Hibernia to scale and react quickly to address changing trans-Atlantic traffic patterns. Hibernia will also leverage Ciena’s OneConnect Intelligent Control Planeplatform, which provides seamless end-to-end service provisioning and creation.

Hibernia Networks owns and operates a global network connecting North America, Europe and Asia. Hibernia offers over 200 network Points of Presence (PoPs) in 89 markets and 25 countries. Its services include IP transit, CDN, carrier Ethernet, Spectrum and others. Its network provides service to global investment banks, content delivery networks (CDN), broadcasters, cloud services, enterprises, international PTTs and ISPs. Hibernia also provides low-latency routes to 31 different financial exchanges around the globe through its Global Financial Network (GFN).

As part of the new relationship with Ciena, Hibernia has also joined Ciena’s BizConnect partner program, which includes joint marketing, training and technical support to penetrate new customers and industries in North America and Europe.
