Transatlantic high bandwidth connectivity provider Hibernia Atlantic has acquired MediaXstream Inc, a specialist in the provision of network services for the media production and broadcast industries. MediaXstream is currently operational in 20 major markets in the US and Europe, serving the increasingly growing demand for High Definition (HD) video networking and production services by TV and film production, sports, news, mobile content and IPTV. The purchase by Hibernia Atlantic expands the network reach of MediaXstream into more than ten key European markets while the acquisition of MediaXstream expands Hibernia’s North American network to 17 additional key Points of Presence (PoPs) in 14 cities in the South and West, including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Tampa, Miami, Atlanta, Washington DC, Baltimore, San Diego and Las Vegas. The combined operations will offer customers diversity in a range of scalable services, including colocation, interconnection and support, with critical monitoring carried out from Hibernia’s Network Operations Centre (NOC) in Dublin, Ireland, and MediaXstream’s Television Operating Centre (TOC) in Baltimore, MD. Hibernia’s submarine cable and terrestrial fibre network offers over 92 redundant network PoPs throughout Canada, the US, the UK and mainland Europe on over 24,000 kilometres of infrastructure.
