Cogent Communications has chosen Hibernia Networks to expand its network reach throughout Northern Ireland. The Ireland network expansion will connect Cogent at Hibernia’s cable landing station in Dublin and across the Titanic Quarter in Northern Ireland. The new capacity will be used to further address the growing demand Cogent is seeing for high-speed communications services.
With almost 2,000 on-net service locations, Cogent is a world-class telecommunications provider serving 36 countries in North America, Europe and Asia. By leveraging Hibernia’s high-capacity, multi-count dark fiber, Cogent further strengthens its infrastructure in Ireland.
“Not only is Hibernia recognized as the premier supplier of high-performance capacity in Ireland, but it is also a leader in diverse network capacity around the globe,” commented Ricardo Orcero, Director Global Fiber for Cogent. “We know that by partnering with Hibernia in any region, we will continue to receive the dedicated support and flexibility to expand when and where we need to be located.”
“Hibernia’s flexible wholesale transport services are designed for metro, long-haul, subsea or terrestrial network builds and boost any carrier that wants secure, diverse network capacity,” explained Eric Gutshall, Senior Vice President Global Sales for Hibernia Networks. “Hibernia built its Northern Ireland network to directly address the growing economy and opportunities throughout the country.”
Hibernia was one of the first subsea carriers to connect North America to Northern Ireland as part of its Project Kelvin build in 2009. The cable connects Hibernia’s fiber-optic cable across Ireland to cities including Armagh, Ballymena, Belfast, Coleraine, Londonderry, Omagh, Portadown, Strabane, Letterkenny, Castleblayney, Dundalk, Drogheda and Monaghan.
