TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company and an industry pioneer in
undersea communications technology, today announces the commencement of
the new Hibernia Express submarine cable system. The 4,600 km cable will
provide the lowest-latency fiber-optic path between New York and London,
connecting Halifax, Nova Scotia and Brean, UK, with terrestrial fiber to
extend connectivity to the major metro areas.
Hibernia Express will initially launch with 100 Gbps transmission
capacity using TE SubCom’s C100 SLTE platform. It will be a 6-fiber-pair
submarine cable, with a portion of the fibers optimized for lowest
latency and a portion optimized for 100x100 Gbps design capacity. The
total cross-sectional design capacity of the cable will be over 53 Tbps.
“Having a unique, low latency route combined with increased capacity
allows Hibernia Express to offer unmatched services to trans-Atlantic
connectivity customers,” said Bjarni Thorvardarson of Hibernia Networks.
“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.”
“Our company’s technology portfolio and extensive trans-Atlantic
installation experience make us an ideal supplier for the Hibernia
Express system,” said John Mitchell, President, TE Subcom. “We’re
looking forward to tackling the special challenges of this unique
project and supplying the newest high capacity, low latency cable across

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies.

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are:
Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)
Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
