SUMMIT, NJ & DUBLIN, IRELAND – June 22, 2010 – Hibernia Atlantic, the only diverse transAtlantic high bandwidth connectivity provider, announces today that Deutsche Börse Systems, the IT subsidiary of Deutsche Börse AG, has selected Hibernia’s secure Global Financial Network (GFN) for high performance, protected connectivity between Frankfurt and Chicago. Deutsche Börse Systems chose Hibernia’s GFN because of its full route diversity throughout the entire transAtlantic, long-haul network, as well as down to the local metro loop level. The new high capacity route will serve Deutsche Börse Group’s large financial client base. The route also avoids highly congested network areas, such as around the New York and London waterways, thereby offering security through physical diversity.
As a leading technology service provider in the financial sector, Deutsche Börse Systems offers a wide range of solutions to optimize the processes and systems of financial service and global capital markets providers. The Deutsche Börse Systems network architecture provides the required low latency, high capacity and failsafe robustness. The new GFN high-bandwidth link Frankfurt–Chicago will be integrated into Deutsche Börse Systems’ backbone network, further improving routing diversity and latency performance.
“With the optimization and diversification of our ultra low latency network between the major financial hubs in Europe and the US, we provide a real benefit to our customers.” states Michael Girg, Director Networks Support of Deutsche Börse Systems. “Partnering with Hibernia for the critical transAtlantic routes gives us the flexibility and diverse connectivity needed to meet the most stringent demands of financial networks.”
Built upon 24,000 kilometers of fiber optic cable, with diversity at every level of the network, the GFN has over 100 Points of Presence (POPs) throughout North America and Europe. With its unique combination of unprecedented diversity and low latency, Hibernia’s GFN offers some of the most reliable and fastest financial routes in the marketplace.
“Any network outage or lagging latency can translate to the loss of millions on the trading floors,” states Eric Gutshall, EVP of Sales and Marketing of Hibernia Atlantic. “We’ve engineered the GFN specifically to address the demanding performance requirements of the financial sectors, further ensuring our clients maintain their competitive advantages. We are committed to our industry-leading SLAs and to delivering active services very fast.”
