Hibernia Networks extends global network with new Dublin point of presence in TelecityGroup

Hibernia Networks, a provider of global telecommunications services, has chosen TelecityGroup's Northwest Business Park facility, one of the largest data centres in Dublin, to host a new point of presence (PoP) on its global network. The agreement marks Hibernia's fourth PoP in Dublin and third in TelecityGroup's Dublin data centres.

As the number of web-centric businesses in need of secure and diverse connectivity in and through Dublin continues to grow, Hibernia's new presence in Northwest Business Park is designed to meet ever-increasing customer demand for its services. Hibernia will deliver optical transport and IP Transit services through the new PoP, increasing the peering and connectivity options available at the facility, which is also Ireland's Internet Neutral Exchange (INEX) facility.

The PoP will provide TelecityGroup's customers with access to Hibernia's Project Kelvin network, an extensive submarine and terrestrial cable deployment that directly connects Northern Ireland with North America and Europe. It will also provide access to the Project Express transatlantic cable system offering high capacity, diverse and low latency connectivity from September 2015.

Maurice Mortell, TelecityGroup Vice President Developing Markets and Managing Director Ireland said, "With demand for telecommunications services continuing to grow, the ability to offer high quality, flexible and secure connectivity is more important than ever. The implementation of an additional Hibernia core PoP in Dublin underscores the unrivalled connectivity options that TelecityGroup provides for businesses located in Ireland."

Bjarni Thorvardarson, CEO of Hibernia Networks said, "Hibernia's presence in TelecityGroup's Northwest Business Park data centre further enhances our dense connectivity options in Dublin. The ever-increasing demand for high quality communication and applications is driving the need for advanced telecom infrastructure to host and transmit data, and TelecityGroup's facility offers the premium power availability and unrivalled connectivity we need to deliver this."

Fergus Innes, Regional Vice President of Europe, Hibernia Networks continues: "Our commitment to delivering premium, high speed connectivity and services throughout Ireland means that we're constantly looking for ways to expand our connectivity options. 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. We also have PoPs with TelecityGroup in the UK and Germany, so have first-hand knowledge of the excellent data centre facilities the company provides."

Hibernia Networks' cutting-edge network technology allows carriers and service providers, as well as content providers, to leverage its reliable, next-generation services. Its network is engineered for reliability with redundant ring architecture and direct access to over 170 points of presence across North America, Europe and Asia including with TelecityGroup in London, Manchester and Frankfurt.
