07 November 2016 | Jason McGee-Abe


Hibernia Networks has continued the expansion of its content delivery network (CDN) platform by establishing a point of presence (PoP) in Milan, its first deployment in Italy.

After expanding the CDN platform in Dublin, Prague, Brussels and Toronto earlier this year, Hibernia Networks has scaled the platform to 13 European countries and now reaches 27 major cities globally. It will facilitate enhanced end-user experience for accessing video on-demand content, file downloads and live streaming services.

“Hibernia Networks is absolutely committed to the continued expansion and development of our Content Services offering. Establishing a local presence in Italy is an important step to more effectively serving this growing market for CDN applications,” states Martin Ford, vice president of sales at Hibernia Networks.

“Online gaming and software distributors, video-on demand and live streaming companies, and enterprises delivering services in Italy will benefit from the flexibility and performance capability of Hibernia Networks’ CDN platform.”

Hibernia Networks’ CDN is comprised of a custom and purpose built software solution, leveraging the company’s owned and operated fibre-optic infrastructure and global IP backbone, delivering best-in-class performance for live streaming, video-on-demand, caching and other CDN applications.
