Hibernia lights new PoP in Telecity's Dublin data center

Hibernia Networks has built a new point of presence (PoP) at Telecity's Northwest Business Park data center in Dublin, a move that immediately deepens its presence in one of Ireland's key cities.  

This is the fourth PoP Hibernia has built in Dublin and its third in Telecity data centers in the city.

Out of this facility, the service provider will deliver its suite of optical transport and IP transit services through the new PoP at the site, which also is the home of Ireland's Internet Neutral Exchange (INEX) facility.

The new PoP will benefit Hibernia and Telecity customers. Existing and new Telecity customers will be able to access Hibernia's Project Kelvin submarine and terrestrial cable network that connects Northern Ireland with North America and Europe.

"The addition of this PoP will improve our service and allow regional businesses to meet the recent increase in demand for data transport and extend their existing footprints," said Fergus Innes, regional vice president of Europe, Hibernia Networks, in a release. "We also have PoPs with TelecityGroup in the UK and Germany, so have first-hand knowledge of the excellent data center facilities the company provides."

Beginning in September 2015, the site will also provide access to Hibernia's Project Express submarine cable system that will provide a low-latency route between New York and London, connecting Halifax, Nova Scotia and Brean, UK, with terrestrial fiber to extend connectivity to the major metro areas.  

Bringing fiber-based connectivity into data centers continues to be a growing trend for service providers like Hibernia. By strengthening its bond with Telecity in another part of Dublin and other parts of Europe, it can become an even more attractive option for other carriers and large multi-national enterprises that need access into the North American market.
