SUMMIT, NJ & DUBLIN, IRELAND – MAY 30, 2012 – Hibernia Atlantic, a global and metro provider of diverse high bandwidth connectivity, announces today that its newly constructed low latency route connecting 165 Halsey to 1400 Federal Blvd in New Jersey is ready for service. Constructed by Cross River Fiber, this new route and strategic partnership provides customers with increased diversity and lower latency than existing routes.
After a thorough planning and design process, Cross River Fiber and Hibernia engineers collaborated on a solution that would showcase the strengths of the partnership and provide customers with a unique alternative in the market. “Our initial customers have been pleasantly surprised to find the actual latency on the new route was lower than expected,” states Joseph Hilt, Senior Vice President of Financial Services for Hibernia Atlantic.
“This was a true team effort, with Cross River and Hibernia reviewing every aspect of construction to the highest standards,” adds Michael Sevret, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for Cross River Fiber. “If something wasn’t perfect, we went back and did it over. No detail was overlooked.”
In addition, Hibernia has certified Vello Systems’ new latency-optimized equipment along this route. The new equipment enables Hibernia to now offer 10Gigabit lit services to customers on the new route with an SLA of 239 microseconds RTD. Vello Systems is the leader in low-latency networking systems, with ultra-low-latency solutions at 10Gigabit and above, based on the intelligent VellOSTM operating system for operational simplicity, software-defined networking, and extreme reliability for mission critical applications.
“This new low latency route marks an important milestone for Hibernia and its commitment to New Jersey,” states Kathy Perone , Chief Operating Officer for Hibernia Atlantic. “Our deep understanding of the region and customers in the area made implementing this route possible. As Cross River Fiber is also a New Jersey based company with proven technical capabilities, selecting their network services for the new route was an easy decision for our team. In addition, our team selected Vello Systems because of its low latency infrastructure systems with high port densities and for its robust technology roadmap – all affording Hibernia key competitive advantages.”
“We are very pleased to collaborate with Hibernia on this critical new route,” commented Vello Systems CEO Karl May. “Vello’s networking solutions provide Hibernia with ultra-low-latency and advanced software-defined networking capabilities which support more intelligent, powerful and flexible networks, enabling Hibernia to offer the most compelling services to their customers.”
