Hibernia Atlantic Adds Interxion to its Global Financial Network (GFN), a High Speed, Multi-Market, Ultra Low-Latency Connectivity Platform

SUMMIT, NJ & DUBLIN, IRELAND- January 21, 2010- Hibernia Atlantic’s Global Financial Network (GFN), a next generation multi-gigabit, high-speed connectivity platform, has added Interxion's London Proximity Data Center to its GFN multi-market footprint.

Throughout the global capital markets and across all asset classes, quote volumes continue to rise substantially. The systemic occurrence to follow high quote volumes are ever increasing market data rates which continue to add strain to the trading infrastructure. More over, global trading firms, with transAtlantic multi-asset and arbitrage strategies, require ultra low-latency market data feeds and sub millisecond order entry speeds. This speed to market is required for firms to stay competitive within leading market centers such as NYSE Euronext and the London Stock Exchange.

By extending into Interxion's London Proximity Data Center, Hibernia Atlantic GFN customers, including dozens of global broker dealers and hedge funds in New York, Chicago, Toronto and across Europe, use its multi-gigabit connectivity to access Interxion’s key market centers at leading network speeds. The LSE and NYSE Euronext, both connected in North America and Europe, demonstrate Hibernia’s commitment to the lowest latency transAtlantic connectivity.

“We are pleased to welcome Hibernia's GFN to our expanded London data center,” states Anthony Foy, Group Managing Director of Interxion. “GFN not only provides what our demanding capital market clients expect, such as next day turn-up times, true network diversity and around-the-clock support, but they also bring necessary capacity that larger financial firms, such as exchanges, require in today’s demanding trading market.”

“By extending into the Interxion London facility, we can provide further secure and diverse connectivity solutions to our global financial customers,” continues Fergus Innes, Vice President of Sales, EMEA. “Hibernia Atlantic selected the Interxion London facility due to its secure and advanced IT infrastructure, as well as its robust reach to the global financial community. This is another natural and exciting addition to the growing GFN network.”
