Hibernia Networks announced on Thursday that it has inked a deal with Zayo Group (AS6461) to provide a 100G augmentation, via Hibernia Express, to Zayo’s transatlantic network. The extension will provide Zayo customers with a fast, secure and diverse transatlantic route, while adding to Zayo’s existing network, which spans more than 82,000 route miles across the U.S. and Europe.


Hibernia Express, the newest, lowest latency transatlantic cable, offers unmatched services to customers requiring connectivity due to its security, diversity and increased capacity. The 4,600 km cable will provide 100Gbps transmission capacity using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform.

“We are pleased that Zayo has selected Hibernia Express for the additional capacity required to meet growing customer demand across the Atlantic,” states Omar Altaji, CCO of Hibernia Networks. “This further strengthens the mutually beneficial partnership between Zayo and Hibernia, and we look forward to continuing the relationship to build a better connected network together.”

“There is an immense amount of growth in the transatlantic space, and customers’ demands for bandwidth are increasing,” said David Howson, president of Zayo International. “Teaming with Hibernia Networks for its 100G service demonstrates the proactive approach we are taking in maintaining a network that is dedicated, secure and reliable for our customers. Through the relationship with Hibernia Networks, Zayo is able to extend its transatlantic capabilities and fuel customers with end-to-end solutions that meet their high bandwidth demands.”
