Global capacity provider Hibernia Atlantic has rebranded its Global Financial Network (GFN) as the Global Express Platform. While the name has changed, the network continues to supply reliable, high-speed, low-latency services to the financial community, including global broker dealers, hedge funds, and capital markets across the US, Canada, Europe and the Pacific Rim, the company says.

The Global Express Platform provides connectivity to more than 60 global exchanges and over 120 entry points around the world. In addition, the Global Express Platform offers rapid installation with five-day turnaround, the company says. The company’s Project Express transatlantic cable system between New York and London will provide a crucial element to the Global Express Platform – and perhaps, inspired the new name.

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