SUMMIT, NJ & DUBLIN, IRELAND – April 27, 2011- Hibernia Atlantic, the only diverse transatlantic high bandwidth connectivity provider, announces today its launch of ‘Hibernia Secure’ for its Global Financial Network (GFN), offering the financial community dedicated network protection across its low latency failover routes, with multiple routes for each city pair. Dedicated to connecting the financial industry, including banks, financial exchanges and trading firms, Hibernia’s GFN now provides a resilient, reliable, dedicated platform, ‘Hibernia Secure’, to ensure safer and faster trading. With service available from 10 Mbps to 1 Gpbs, ‘Hibernia Secure’ offers one single interface with multiple route choices, providing 100% guaranteed uptime between critical trading routes. Depending on locations, this includes options for several failover routes that avoid common, congested corridors, such as the waterways around New York and London, in case of regional failure.

Providing an extra layer of diversity and security, ‘Hibernia Secure’ will automatically re-route GFN traffic to the client’s secondary route choice in the unlikely event of signal loss. Service will then be re-routed back to the primary or faster route as soon as that route becomes available. ‘Hibernia Secure’ also provides a safe-time window, from 11 PM to 2 AM EST, for network maintenance, thereby insuring optimal network performance during major trading hours in the US and EU regions. This includes third-party vendors to ensure end-to-end compliance.

“We are committed to delivering innovative solutions to the financial community,” states Matt Johnson, Vice President of Product and Strategy of Hibernia Atlantic. “We created ‘Hibernia Secure’ in direct response to financial firms’ stringent network requirements for fast and secure connectivity for their financial transactions and trades.”

Clients can choose an expected latency on key financial routes including from London to Frankfurt at 8.75 ms for the primary route, 9.22 ms for the secondary route and 9.88 ms for the third route. Additionally, firms sending traffic from the New York metro area to Chicago can access 14.6 ms for the primary route, 17.08 ms for the secondary route, and 27.5 ms for the third route. These are just a few of the ‘Hibernia Secure’ Routes currently available. For further routing latencies and the complete ‘Hibernia Secure’ network map, click here.

As with all GFN routing, ‘Hibernia Secure’ includes rapid installation, with five-day turn-up, from signature to service, or one month free guaranteed.
