Datapipe is teaming up with Hibernia Networks (news) to connect up its data centers in the New York and London metro areas. They've purchased wavelength services from the submarine cable operator to bring lower latency connectivity to their clients, and especially their financial clients I assume.
Meanwhile, Hibernia Atlantic will also add network PoPs in both of Datapipe's London and New Jersey facilities, broadening their reach to better serve the various financial customers connected to their own network. They've always had a very substantial terrestrial footprint on each side of the Atlantic to feed into their core submarine cable assets.
Hibernia is also still busy building that new lower latency transatlantic link, Project Express, which will surely become a part of this Datapipe relationship when it comes online sometime next year. Overall the company has been rather quiet lately though, hopefully we'll get another update on their build progress before long.
