Hibernia Networks and TE SubCom today announce that they have commenced the manufacturing of the Hibernia Express trans-Atlantic cable system, the newest and fastest fiber-optic path between New York and London. The 4,600km cable is targeted to be in service Summer 2015.
The state-of-the-art system will connect New York and London, as well as connecting Halifax, Nova Scotia and Brean, UK with terrestrial fiber to extend connectivity to major metro areas. The Hibernia Express cable system will boast a total cross-sectional design capacity of 53 Tbps and launch with 100Gbps transmission capacity by using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform. Additionally, the 6-fiber-pair cable features a portion of fibers that are optimized for lowest latency and a second portion that are optimized for 100×100 Gbps design capacity.
“Having a unique, low latency route combined with increased capacity allows Hibernia Express to offer unmatched services to trans-Atlantic connectivity customers,” said Bjarni Thorvardarson of Hibernia Networks. “As a pillar of the submarine cable industry, we are confident that TE SubCom will deliver a highly advanced cable system and world-class implementation. We’re thrilled to have reached this critical point in the deployment of Hibernia Express.”
