03 November 2015 |

Equinix has revealed that the newly launched Hibernia Express cable system now directly connects the Equinix NY4 data centre in New York and the LD4 data centre in London.

Equinix’s NY4 and LD4 international business exchange (IBX) data centres now serve as carrier-neutral landing locations for the transatlantic route.

“Equinix remains committed to providing fast, secure and interconnected routes between the world’s most significant financial centres,” said Jim Poole, VP of global service providers at Equinix.

“This new transatlantic connectivity gives Equinix customers further opportunities to driving business advantage in today’s global economy.”

The new fibre pathway between London and New York is designed to support the connectivity requirements of the financial markets on either side of the Atlantic with its low-latency capabilities.
