Hibernia Media, the video transport division of Hibernia Atlantic, announces its purchase of the TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) MediaConnect business in Europe and the US.  This 13-country, media-specialized network doubles the size of Hibernia Media’s reach in Europe and combines the strengths of Hibernia Media’s 100% QoS network, and TSIC’s award winning backbone capacity network.

The newly expanded Hibernia Media network will provide the world’s leading media companies with a video-enabled fiber network connecting 17 European markets via Hibernia’s extensive US network footprint. The combined high quality media network will deliver international sports programming, network programming, news segments, and global events. The acquisition expands Hibernia Media’s European footprint, which already includes London, Dublin and Brussels, into new markets such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Madrid, Munich, Oslo, Paris, Riga, Stockholm, Tallinn, Vienna, and Vilnius.

The integrated network is available immediately for full-time connections and pre-scheduled live video events. Hibernia Media’s Occasional Use live feed services will be available across the former TeliaSonera media network in Europe starting fourth quarter 2012.
