‘LINX From Anywhere’ is designed to help networks connect to LINX without having to pay for and arrange a physical presence in London. The service provides Hibernia’s North American customers with access to LINX enabling them to join the association and peer with the existing 330 global members without the need for additional equipment, space or power.
As one of the layer 2 carriers selected by LINX to participate in the ‘LINX From Anywhere’ program, Hibernia Atlantic offers available (POS) Packet over Sonet Ethernet ports for its secure transport services to LINX members in London. LINX members, including global and UK ISPs and content delivery network providers, can now quickly connect to Hibernia for secure and fast access to North America.
Hibernia Atlantic’s diverse footprint avoids traditionally congested routes, like the waterways around London and New York, and instead provides a more northern route across the Atlantic directly connecting the UK to Canada and then south to the US. This unique, physical diversity is necessary for companies carrying critical communications, such as content delivery networks and service providers, who rely on secure and fast connections, for high quality of network service.
“We are proud to have Hibernia Atlantic offer layer-two transport for our ‘LINX From Anywhere’ program,” states Richard Yule, Sales and Marketing Manager of LINX. “In addition to the major UK and global ISPs, the ‘LINX from Anywhere’ service provides a reliable and straightforward solution to the connectivity needs of network operators looking to expand into London. Our network marketplace makes LINX a compelling place for international peering and Hibernia’s secure and diverse network a compelling offering within the ‘LINX From Anywhere’ family.”
“We are proud to build upon the long-time, existing relationship between LINX and Hibernia by announcing this new access point,” continued Eric Gutshall, EVP of Sales and Marketing for Hibernia Atlantic. “LINX and Hibernia are both highly committed to optimal network service and the high-quality, online end-user experience. We are proud to be part of the ‘LINX From Anywhere’ program and look forward to servicing the LINX members and Hibernia customers with fast, direct and secure connections.”
