Hibernia Atlantic brings Ethernet services to IO New Jersey

Hibernia Atlantic on Thursday announced that it will begin offering its Ethernet services out of data center provider IO's New Jersey facility.

IO can now offer Hibernia's global Ethernet and other related services to both existing and new customers that reside in the data center. Customers will be able to take advantage of dedicated Ethernet services with up to 10G speeds that are fully protected.

What IO gains from this agreement is global reach.

Hibernia's network currently covers over 120 PoPs and has a trans-Atlantic cable that provides reach into key European countries such as England, France, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands. Having a partnership with Hibernia will complement IO's own recent expansion into the European market.

"Hibernia's access to over 120 PoPs and global footprint adds fully redundant options to our network presence," said Tony Wanger, President of IO.

Under the terms of the agreement, Hibernia will connect its global network facilities, including its submarine network cables, to IO's Edison, N.J. facility.  

The deal is also significant to Hibernia because they now add another well-established partner to target new opportunities for its low latency and global network services in the New Jersey market. In May, Hibernia built a new fiber network in partnership with Cross River Fiber to take advantage of new opportunities for alternative providers that will be made possible by NYSE Euronext's move to open its data centers to more service providers.
