SUMMIT, NJ & DUBLIN, IRELAND – March 16th, 2010
Hibernia Atlantic, the only diverse transAtlantic high bandwidth connectivity provider, announces it has been selected by Tinet, formerly the carrier arm of Tiscali Group and the only global carrier exclusively committed to the IP and Ethernet wholesale market, to deliver multiple 10 Gbps wavelengths of capacity to and from Toronto, New York, Dublin, London, Frankfurt and other major metro areas on Hibernia’s private network.
With this additional capacity increase, Tinet can further offer its global wholesale customers greater redundancy, diverse routing, and access, thereby further enhancing its IP and Ethernet service performance. This capacity increase is the result of rising customer demand for wholesale services, such as Ethernet Private Lines, VPLS and IP Transit. This increase is also in line with Tinet’s previously announced expansion plans expansion plans, whereas the company is further investing its network, including deploying a third Network Operations Center (NOC) in the U.S.
Tinet has selected Hibernia Atlantic, a long-time network partner of the company, as Hibernia offers additional security through diversity routing. Hibernia operates the only undersea cable crossing directly from Ireland to Canada and the US, thereby avoiding single points of failures, landing point and backhaul routes, such as the UK’s Bude, Bristol and Whitesands areas, and the waterways near London and New York.
“As we further expand our network within the US and globally, we have chosen to collaborate with companies like Hibernia Atlantic who share our common vision for the highest level of customer support and quality transport services,” states Maurizio Binello, COO of Tinet. “We are pleased with the security and flexibility that Hibernia provides and we look forward to passing on this high quality performance to our customers.”
“Hibernia Atlantic is an attractive option for global companies like Tinet requiring broad reach, innovative services and high-level operational and network performance,” continues Bjarni Thorvardarson, CEO of Hibernia Atlantic. “Hibernia offers Tinet a diverse cable connection to Europe and North America, which is flexible enough to grow and support Tinet and its customers’ increasing bandwidth demands.”
