Hibernia Networks Deploys Ciena Packet-Optical Platform

Hibernia Networks, a provider of global telecommunications services, this week announced that it is ready for service on six new long haul fiber routes in the Northeast United States, including Ashburn to New York, Chicago to New York, New York to Buffalo, New York to Albany and New York to Boston. The expansion represents a multi-year effort to reduce latency and increase diversity of the largest capacity terrestrial component of Hibernia’s global network, said the company. The network expansion includes the deployment of Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform enabling Hibernia to offer a roadmap to circuit capacities beyond 100G.

Hibernia Networks, a subsidiary of Columbia Ventures Corporation, owns and operates a global network connecting North America, Europe and Asia and  has over 200 network Points of Presence (PoPs) in 89 markets and 25 countries. Hibernia provides secure, diverse and dedicated Ethernet, DTM, Wavelengths and carrier-grade IP Transit services.

David Smith, SVP Global Network Operations of Hibernia Networks
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. 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.
