“Hibernia’s Global Express Platform connects high frequency traders to global exchanges along the lowest latency, purpose built network”

Hibernia’s Global Express Platform serves the financial community, including global broker dealers, hedge funds, and capital markets across the U.S., Canada, Europe and the Pacific Rim. The Global Express Platform is one of the most resilient and reliable next generation multi-gigabit ultra low latency networks with access to Hibernia’s global network offering over 120 Points of Presence (PoPs). In addition, the Global Express Platform offers rapid installation with industry-leading 5-day turnaround.

“Hibernia’s Global Express Platform connects high frequency traders to global exchanges along the lowest latency, purpose built network,” states Joe Hilt, Vice President of Sales North America for Hibernia Atlantic. “With direct access to international interconnection facilities, Hibernia provides global businesses the source for fast and secure financial connections. The Global Express Platform is an exclusive, custom designed network built on Hibernia’s diverse footprint. More customers in both the financial and enterprise industries are requiring ultra-low latency connections around the globe. Our Global Express Platform caters to these specific needs.”

Hibernia’s “Project Express” will enhance the existing Global Express Platform by providing the lowest latency fiber optic cable system connecting the greater New York City area with London. This transatlantic cable will be the first build of its kind in over ten years and will offer financial clients such as traders, global banks and exchanges, connectivity with sub 60 milliseconds latency between NY and London. Once completed, Project Express will be the fastest route across the Atlantic Ocean. This will also provide faster connections between Chicago and London or Frankfurt utilizing this new cable route.

The Global Express Platform connects the world’s largest exchanges’ data centers to its direct participants through secure and diverse dedicated, high bandwidth, ultra low-latency Ethernet and optical-level service from multimegabit to 10-GigE, LanPhy wavelengths and traditional SONET/SDH services. Utilizing the Hibernia Atlantic diverse and secure backbone, the Global Express Platform offers world-leading broker dealers, hedge funds, market data providers and other financial firms connectivity into key capital market cities.
