Hibernia Atlantic, a submarine transport cable provider, and Equinix, a provider of network-neutral data centers, has announced that Hibernia will provide ethernet transport services to the aggregation of companies operating within Equinix Internet Business Exchange centers in the Chicago, Frankfurt, New York and Washington, D.C. area markets.
Hibernia’s Transparent and Layer 1 GigE service provides SDH performance with full ethernet functionality. The service will provide an additional network option for the aggregation of companies operating within Equinix’s network-neutral data centers, specifically the financial industry customers participating in the Equinix Financial eXchange service.
This service provides a highly resilient and low-latency platform for financial trading exchange companies to interconnect with each other and multiple service providers.
In addition to proximity services that offer direct market access to major trading exchanges, Equinix also provides its Financial eXchange community members with the high levels of connectivity they need to access the growing number of multiple trading venues they need to connect with in today’s post MiFID and Reg NMS environments.
