Hibernia Atlantic says it has put into service a new low-latency route between 165 Halsey and 1400 Federal Boulevard in New Jersey. Cross River Fiber provided the fiber-optic infrastructure.

“Our initial customers have been pleasantly surprised to find the actual latency on the new route was lower than expected,” states Joseph Hilt, senior vice president of financial services for Hibernia Atlantic.

“This was a true team effort, with Cross River and Hibernia reviewing every aspect of construction to the highest standards,” adds Michael Sevret, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for Cross River Fiber. “If something wasn’t perfect, we went back and did it over. No detail was overlooked.”

The route uses optical transport platforms from Vello Systems, which are engineered with low latency in mind. Hibernia says the platforms enable it to offer customers 10-Gbps lit services with an SLA of 239 ms RTD.

“This new low-latency route marks an important milestone for Hibernia and its commitment to New Jersey,” states Kathy Perone, COO for Hibernia Atlantic. “Our deep understanding of the region and customers in the area made implementing this route possible. As Cross River Fiber is also a New Jersey-based company with proven technical capabilities, selecting their network services for the new route was an easy decision for our team. In addition, our team selected Vello Systems because of its low-latency infrastructure systems with high port densities and for its robust technology roadmap – all affording Hibernia key competitive advantages.”
