N.J. companies announce trans-Atlantic cable project

By ,

New Jersey-based companies Hibernia Networks and TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company, announced Monday the commencement of the new Hibernia Express submarine cable system.

The cable will stretch approximately 2,850 miles and provide the lowest-latency fiber optic path between New York and London. It will connect Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Brean, U.K., with terrestrial fiber optics and connect major metropolitan areas.

Summit-based Hibernia’s CEO, Bjarni Thorvardarson, spoke to the future capabilities of the cable.

“Having a unique, low latency route combined with increased capacity allows Hibernia Express to offer unmatched services to trans-Atlantic connectivity customers,” Thorvardarson said in a statement. “As a pillar of the submarine cable industry, we are confident that TE SubCom will deliver a highly advanced cable system and world-class implementation. We’re thrilled to have reached this critical point in the deployment of Hibernia Express.”

Despite Eatontown-based TE SubCom’s experience, this project presents a technological step forward as well as new challenges, according to President John Mitchell.

“Our company’s technology portfolio and extensive trans-Atlantic installation experience make us an ideal supplier for the Hibernia Express system,” Mitchell said in a news release. “We’re looking forward to tackling the special challenges of this unique project and supplying the newest high-capacity, low-latency cable across the Atlantic.”
