FREMONT, CA: Hibernia Networks, a provider of global telecommunications solutions, has announced that it has established a Point of Presence (PoP) in Dubai, UAE. The new PoP enables customers to benefit from Hibernia Networks’ comprehensive suite of data and media services, as well as low latency connectivity solutions in Dubai to other major financial and media centers in Europe, North America and Asia.

“With its strategic location, Dubai is a major international hub for financial markets as well as media and content distribution throughout the region and beyond,” states Omar Altaji, CCO of Hibernia Networks. He further adds, “Hibernia Networks’ presence in Dubai confirms our commitment to strategically expanding our global network reach into new geographic locations in order to provide customers with the high-speed, high-quality connections they require around the globe for applications such as split second financial transactions and live broadcast feeds. We look forward to continued growth in key local and regional markets to better serve increasing global demand for secure and diverse low latency connectivity solutions.”

The new PoP is located in one of Dubai’s major telecom hubs, enabling seamless cross-connects to other networks extending into the Middle East and the rest of the world. The Ethernet-based connectivity service leverages the unmatched latency performance of Hibernia Networks cable across the Atlantic, which connects Europe and North America.

According to TeleGeography, demand for international bandwidth between the Middle East and North America is projected to grow 39 percent annually from 2015 to 2022.

“Network latency has become a critical performance factor for financial firms, content providers, and cloud computing platforms,” stated Erik Kreifeldt, senior analyst at TeleGeography. “These industry segments stand to benefit from the low latency connectivity option that Hibernia Networks has introduced to and from Dubai.”
