Hibernia Express comes ashore in Cork – first transatlantic cable to be deployed in 12 years
12 August 2015
Hibernia Networks, a provider of high-speed global telecommunications services, has announced that Hibernia Express, the first transatlantic cable to be deployed in 12 years, has come ashore in Cork.
The new ultra low latency submarine cable, spanning 4,600km, will link Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Slough, England, and Cork, connecting key centers of trade and commerce in Europe and North America. The cable is slated for service beginning in September.
“Our customers are now just weeks away from having access to the most advanced submarine cable system on the market,” states Omar Altaji, CCO of Hibernia Networks.
“Financial firms, web-centric companies, media players and traditional telecom service providers alike will benefit from the speed, diversity and scalability that Hibernia Express brings to the transatlantic corridor.”
During the system’s construction, TE SubCom deployed multiple cable ships to lay the state-of-the-art cable and amplifiers on the seabed. The ultra low latency cable will offer speeds up to 100 Gbps transmission capacity, meeting increasing demand for secure, high speed connectivity driven by big data, cloud and media rich applications.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/08/12/hibernia-express-comes-ashore-in-cork-first-transatlantic-cable-to-be-deployed-in-12-years/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/acork1.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/acork1-300x299.jpgNewsbroadband,Cork,telecoms
