GTT Launches Global Optical Transport Services

GTT Communications, a global cloud networking provider that in January completed the acquisition of Hibernia Networks, announced the launch of Optical Transport services, designed to provide customers with scalable bandwidth and low latency connectivity for the transport of data and cloud-based applications between financial markets, data centres, media hubs and service provider networks.

The new services leverage the company's extensive subsea and terrestrial optical network, which is optimised for latency performance. The network is based on a DWDM platform and includes three owned and operated, diverse trans-Atlantic cables, as well as over 75 points of presence across North America and Europe. GTT's optical transport service features wavelengths and low latency solutions, offered at 10 and 100 Gbit/s speeds.

The company noted that the new low latency service provides high speed connectivity between major financial, media and commercial centres, delivered over GTT Express, the lowest latency trans-Atlantic cable that provides latency of less than 59 milliseconds between New York and London. The low latency service also provides card and route diversity.

Hibernia Networks and GTT announced the completion of the transaction under which GTT acquired Hibernia on January 9th. The companies originally announced the transaction in early November 2016, through which GTT was to purchase Hibernia for $590 million, including $515 million in cash and approximately 3.3 million shares of GTT common stock valued at around $75 million.

New Hibernia Express Cable Timed at Record 58.95ms Latency for NY-London

The new Hibernia Express transatlantic cable is delivering an actual tested latency of better than 58.95ms (milliseconds) from New York to London, which is faster by more than half a millisecond off the original projected speed.

Hibernia Networks said its new undersea cable has undergone rigorous testing over the past two weeks. Testing parameters included power stability, spectral efficiency and latency. The results confirmed the latency on Hibernia Express from LD4 in Slough, England to NY4 in Secaucus, New Jersey to be under 58.95ms.

http://www.hibernianetworks.com/hibernia_express

  • 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. Hibernia Express follows the most direct route between the UK and North America, promising to reduce latency by at least 5 milliseconds over existing cables.

Hibernia Offers BGP Flowspec for Global IP Traffic

Hibernia Networks introduced Border Gateway Protocol Flow Specification (BGP Flowspec) for its global IP Transit services. This new security capability is available immediately for all Hibernia Networks IP Transit customers.

The company said BGP Flowspec provides network operators and enterprise customers a tool to address DDoS threats. The enhanced DDoS mitigation solution allows customers to save valuable time between the identification of an attack and the implementation of remediation schemes. BGP Flowspec’s ability to take a surgical approach to traffic filtering, through the Network Layer Reachability Information (NLRI) functionality, enables the identification of specific traffic flows that should be discarded as a component of a DDoS attack.

“Given the number of threat vectors on the Internet, it’s absolutely essential that carriers and enterprise customers have the latest in DDoS mitigation capabilities in today’s environment,” states Al DiGabriele, Senior Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Hibernia Networks. “Hibernia Networks’ IP Transit customers gain a more effective and precise security response tool with BGP Flowspec.”

Video: Hibernia - Demand Rises for Lowest Latency, Transatlantic Capacity

When it set out to build its new Hibernia Express transatlantic cable system, Hibernia Networks really was looking to achieve a couple of goals. The top goal was to provide absolutely the lowest latency across the Atlantic. Another ambition was to provide another diverse, high-capacity system that would be attractive to multiple customer segments.

In this video,  Al DiGabiele, SVP Product Management & Marketing at Hibernia Networks, talks about rising demand on the new cable system and a new protected-wavelength service with automated failure switching.

Hibernia Upgrades Terrestrial Network with Ciena 6500

Hibernia Networks has activated service on six new long haul fiber routes in the Northeast United States. The new routes, which use Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, represent a multi-year effort to reduce latency and increase diversity of the largest capacity terrestrial component of Hibernia’s global network.

Some highlights:

  • Two completely diverse paths from Ashburn to Hibernia’s landings in Boston and Halifax with comparable latency
  • More direct routing between New York and Toronto and Chicago and New York
  • Additional diversity through Albany avoiding existing critical infrastructure along the I-95 corridor and adjacent markets

“This is part of our overall evolution to introduce diversity and better latency performance throughout our entire network. We have had support from our customers and our partners like Ciena throughout this project and it was made possible through continuous and increasing demand for capacity in the region,” states David Smith, SVP Global Network Operations of Hibernia Networks. “The resulting technology refresh across our Northeast network assets reflects our long term commitment to bringing the most advanced and highest capacity technologies to the market aggressively.”
