NOVEMBER 10, 2009 -- Transatlantic submarine carrier Hibernia Atlantic and Equinix Inc. have announced the expansion of Hibernia’s Global Financial Network (GFN) into the Equinix New York-2 (NY2) and New York-4 (NY4) International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in Secaucus, NJ. The expansion further drives Hibernia Atlantic’s redundancy within the New York metro area.

The link into the 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), the companies assert.

Hibernia’s GFN now boasts five different dark fiber providers across New York metro as well as 13 network PoPs in the New York metro region. The GFN, built upon 24,000 km of fiber-optic cable, is layered over Hibernia Atlantic’s diverse fiber optic network that reaches such financial cities as Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Stamford, Weehawken, Secaucus, Newark, White Plains, New York, Frankfurt, Reading, and London.
