Hibernia Atlantic taps into New Jersey's need for low latency

Hibernia Atlantic has completed the build out of a new low latency route connecting 165 Halsey to 1400 Federal Blvd in New Jersey to appeal to the state's financial trading community.

Built by partner Cross River Fiber, a dark fiber provider, the new network will offer a series of dark fiber, dim waves and lit waves to customers looking for alternative fiber and optical service provider options.

To deliver its 10G lit wavelength services along this new route, Hibernia will leverage Vello Systems' latency-optimized optical equipment.

Hibernia said that Vello's equipment will enable them to offer 10G lit services to customers on the new route with an SLA of 239 microseconds RTD. The secret sauce inside Vello's gear appears to be its use of software-defined networking (SDN), an architecture that runs the network's control plane in software and make the data plane itself more programmable.

The timing for this new network route follows two recent events in the New Jersey competitive telecom and financial trading markets.

Cross River itself just built a new "express connectivity" link between Mahwah and Carteret, Secaucus and Weehawken, N.J. It made this move in response to the NYSE Euronext's announcement last week to open its data centers to more service providers.
