Web Hosting WireSummit, NJ, Dublin, Ireland & Foster City, CA – Hibernia Atlantic, the only diverse transAtlantic submarine transport cable provider, and Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced the expansion of its Global Financial Network (GFN) into the Equinix New York-2 (NY2) and New York-4 (NY4) International Business Exchange (IBX(r)) data centers in Secaucus, New Jersey. This expansion further drives Hibernia Atlantic’s redundancy within the New York metro area and reinforces the company’s commitment to provide reliable connectivity to its financial customers, bypassing major congestion points located within major metro city centers. This link into Equinix Financial eXchange, a neutral electronic marketplace of active market participants located in the NY2 and NY4 centers, is also a much-desired route for financial exchange traffic, moving from Chicago to Secaucus (bypassing Manhattan when and if necessary) and across the Atlantic Ocean to Slough, UK (bypassing London when and if necessary as well).

With five different dark fiber providers across New York metro as well as 13 network Points of Presence (PoPs) now in the New York metro region, Hibernia’s GFN is one of the most resilient, reliable and fastest best-of-breed networks serving the financial community in the metropolitan area and beyond. Hibernia’s GFN, built upon 24,000 Kilometers of fiber optic cable, is layered over Hibernia Atlantic’s diverse fiber optic network that reaches key financial cities including Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Stamford, Weehawken, Secaucus, Newark, White Plains, New York, Frankfurt, Reading and London. Hibernia’s GFN uniquely meets the demanding performance and reliability requirements of the global financial community, by providing fast, active service, low-latency and high performance network connectivity.

The new PoPs extend Hibernia’s GFN into Equinix Financial eXchange in the NY2 and NY4 centers,” said John Knuff, director, Business Development for Equinix. Equinix Financial eXchange is an established community of execution venues, buy and sell side firms, and technology utilities that have located at Equinix’s high-performance data centers.

“Our continued GFN expansion in New York metro and in other major financial centers reflects our core commitment to provide ‘security through diversity’-our company philosophy that offers world-class, redundant solutions to our financial customers,” continues Bob McMann, VP of Provisioning and Procurement. “As always, we are committed to finding innovative ways to provide quality, diverse routes, low latency, and rapid provisioning to meet the demanding performance and reliability requirements of the financial community.”
