Hibernia Trims Latency on Transatlantic Route with Innovative Backhaul

Hibernia Networks said it has further reduced latency on its new Hibernia Express transatlantic cable route connecting New York to London by means of newly acquired backhaul infrastructure.

Specifically, the company said that to further reduce latency beyond the already industry leading performance of sub 58.95ms on the high density traffic London to New York route, it has procured alternative backhaul routes in the United Kingdom as part of its phase one deployment. The low latency services delivered over Hibernia Express are relied upon by customers for mission critical applications across numerous segments, including financial firms, content providers, and web-centric companies. Hibernia Express latency on the subsea cable connecting North America and UK is RFCS tested at 44.92ms.

“At Hibernia Networks we are unwavering in our commitment to provide the industry leading network performance that our most demanding customers entrust us to deliver,” states Omar Altaji, CCO of Hibernia Networks. “Customers rely on our low latency, high capacity connectivity solutions to ensure their ability to stay competitive in today’s networked world.”

  • 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.  Hibernia Express follows the most direct route between the UK and North America.
