Hibernia Atlantic Calls For Increased Submarine Cable Awareness

To Ensure Constant Security For Trans-Atlantic Cable Networks

BOSTON and NEW YORK, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Hibernia Atlantic, the only diverse trans-Atlantic transport provider, and one of the two trans-Atlantic cables that are U-S owned, calls for the greater awareness and need for government understanding of the submarine cables linking North America with Europe. Hibernia Atlantic is concerned that the cables' importance as an economic infrastructure has not been properly addressed within the global community.

Simply stated, Hibernia Atlantic views awareness in two different ways to ensure continuity of submarine cables. 1). Government assistance. (Designating protection zones, placing several cables in to one bore pipe, restricting fishing activities and increasing military air surveillance). And/or 2). Educating network purchasers in laying out a plan for sufficient geographic diversity. Both examples are proactive protection approaches versus reactive.

Some countries have already recognized the extreme importance of the communications infrastructure, and have already proposed a call for action and government protection. For example, Australian Media and Communications Authority (ACMA)'s just announced a new protection regime proposal, restricting and prohibiting certain maritime activities up to 40 nautical miles off the Sydney beaches. These beaches are the limited landing points of some of Australia's most important submarine cables.

Hibernia Atlantic has been actively educating and promoting its cable diversity to governments, carriers, enterprise customers and related industries, assuring all that Hibernia's Trans-Atlantic cable is as diverse as possible from all other submarine cables. This North Atlantic cable lay provides greater options to the global business community, when designing their mission critical communications infrastructure.

"Business and community life are now, more than ever, highly reliant on secure communications," states Bjarni Thorvardarson, Chief Executive Officer of Hibernia Atlantic. "The significance of secure links has increased dramatically in the past few years. Current protection schemes are still vague to most, even though global economic infrastructures rest within the cable."

Already Hibernia Atlantic works closely with the submarine industry and fishing communities to increase awareness of all cable systems, in order to avoid accidental damage or cuts of submarine cables. Hibernia Atlantic also communicates with the emergency preparedness groups in Canada and all other associated regions.

"We at Hibernia Atlantic believe that promoting education on the trans- Atlantic existing communications networks will generate increased submarine security," states Derek Bullock, Sr. Director of Operations and Submarine Activity for Hibernia Atlantic. "Currently there are only seven modern fiber optic submarine cables in use in the Atlantic Ocean. And all but two of these cables are owned by foreign organizations and a majority of these companies are sharing common backhaul. We need to consider the security of these lines as the highest priority."
