JUNE 22, 2010 -- Transatlantic carrier Hibernia Atlantic says that Deutsche Börse Systems, the IT subsidiary of Deutsche Börse AG, has selected Hibernia’s Global Financial Network (GFN) for high-performance, protected connectivity between Frankfurt and Chicago.

Hibernia says Deutsche Börse Systems chose the GFN because of its full route diversity throughout the entire transatlantic, long-haul network, as well as down to the local metro loop level. The new high-capacity route will serve Deutsche Börse Group’s large financial client base. The route also avoids highly congested network areas, such as around the New York and London waterways, thereby offering security through physical diversity, the carrier asserts.

Deutsche Börse Systems offers a wide range of services to optimize the processes and systems of financial service and global capital markets providers. The Deutsche Börse Systems network architecture is designed to provide low latency, high capacity, and failsafe robustness. The new GFN high-bandwidth link Frankfurt–Chicago will be integrated into Deutsche Börse Systems’ backbone network, further improving routing diversity and latency performance, Hibernia says.

“With the optimization and diversification of our ultra low latency network between the major financial hubs in Europe and the US, we provide a real benefit to our customers,” states Michael Girg, director, networks support of Deutsche Börse Systems. “Partnering with Hibernia for the critical transatlantic routes gives us the flexibility and diverse connectivity needed to meet the most stringent demands of financial networks.”

Built upon 24,000 kilometers of fiber optic cable, with diversity at every level of the network, the GFN has more than 100 points of presence (POPs) throughout North America and Europe.
