Zayo Group Selects Hibernia Express to Expand Transatlantic Network

Hibernia Networks, a provider of global telecommunications services, has inked a deal with Zayo Group, a global provider of bandwidth infrastructure services, to provide a 100G augmentation, via Hibernia Express, to Zayo’s transatlantic network. 

The extension would provide Zayo customers with a “fast, secured and diverse” transatlantic route, while adding to Zayo’s existing network, which spans more than 82,000 route miles across the U.S. and Europe. 

Hibernia Express, the newest, “lowest latency” transatlantic cable, would offer unmatched services to customers requiring connectivity due to its “security, diversity and increased capacity.” The 4,600 km cable will provide 100Gbps transmission capacity using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform.
