Hibernia Atlantic’s Irish Connections Start To Pay Off

May 25th, 2010 by · Leave a Comment

Transatlantic cable operator Hibernia Atlantic put a lot of effort last year into its connectivity to and within Ireland with Project Kelvin, adding a cable landing at Portrush and a land network southward through Northern Ireland and across the border down to Dublin.  All that hard work into some unique infrastructure now seems to be paying off.  Yesterday morning it was a win for their Hibernia Media division at RTE, last night it was the contract with ISP North West Electronics Wireless, and this morning they are announcing a partnership with Tibus.

North West Electronics (NWE) Wireless provides fixed wireless and WIMAX services in the north of Ireland on both sides of the border.  By leveraging this new onnectivity from Hibernia Atlantic, NWE will be able to extend its WiMAX coverage southward into the rest of Ireland as well, including Derry, Coleraine, Letterkenny, as well as Dublin. 

Northern Ireland's Tibus, on the other hand, has been selected by Hibernia Atlantic as its market partner Northern Ireland.  Tibus, a division of UTV Media, offers a range of managed services, hosting and media delivery to many vertical markets and handles streaming for UTV to the media vertical.  They will incorporate Hibernia Atlantic's offerings into their portfolio, especially the direct transatlantic connectivity.
