HiberniaNETWORK_logo4cHibernia Networks today announced that is has expanded its network in the Northeast US. Six long-haul fiber routes are ready for service, which include new routes from Ashburn to New York, Chicago to New York, New York to Buffalo, New York to Albany and New York to Boston.

Utilizing Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform, the expansion reduces latency, increases the diversity and allows Hibernia to offer a roadmap to circuit capacities beyond 100G on the largest capacity terrestrial component of Hibernia’s global network. The new long-haul dark fiber routes not only offer two completely diverse paths from Ashburn to Hibernia’s CLS in Boston and Halifax, but also offer more direct routing between New York and Toronto and Chicago and New York. Additionally, the expansion enhances the network’s diversity through Albany by avoiding existing critical infrastructure along the I-95 corridor and adjacent markets.

“This is part of our overall evolution to introduce diversity and better latency performance throughout our entire network. We have had support from our customers and our partners like Ciena throughout this project and it was made possible through continuous and increasing demand for capacity in the region,” states David Smith, SVP Global Network Operations of Hibernia Networks. “The resulting technology refresh across our Northeast network assets reflects our long term commitment to bringing the most advanced and highest capacity technologies to the market aggressively.”
