Internap Adds Hibernia Atlantic to Carrier Diversity Model


TransAtlantic submarine transport cable provider, Hibernia Atlantic, today announces it has been added by Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP) (Internap), to its diverse network of backbone providers. The decision by Internap was designed to further enhance its already robust connectivity between the US, Europe and Canada. Internap is expanding capacity to its international backbone as part of a previously-stated strategy of investing in its core Performance IPâ„¢ services.

Internap's patented routing technology chooses the best path for content delivery - offering their customers reliability and performance guarantees unmatched in the industry, Internap delivers and distributes applications and content for more than 3,000 companies over its managed Internet and Content Delivery Network (CDN). With the addition of Hibernia to the "best-path" options available within this architecture, Internap's private network backbone solution is even less susceptible to failures in the rather unlikely event that more than one of its other providers were to experience simultaneous outages.

"Internap is always looking for ways to build in redundancy and reliability while reducing costs," said Eric Cooney, President and CEO of Internap. "Hibernia Atlantic's security, diversity and flexibility met our requirements for inclusion as part of our network.

"Hibernia's network offers Internap a reliable, yet cost-effective, option between its hubs in the US, Canada and Europe. The addition of Hibernia also reflects Internap's growth on a global level. We are proud to have been chosen by Internap because they pick only the best providers to be a part of their network," says Eric Gutshall, EVP of Sales and Marketing for Hibernia Atlantic.

"Hibernia Atlantic's network of local and regional networks in North America and Europe, coupled with its recent capacity upgrade, leave the carrier well-positioned to meet the rapidly increasing bandwidth demand that will be driven by increasing consumer demand for video services," said Cindy Whelan, principal analyst, Telecom Services for Current Analysis. "Internap's selection of Hibernia Atlantic for its international backbone builds upon Internap's reputation for provisioning the most secure, reliable avenue to serve customers today and demonstrates anticipated growth in the future."
