With microseconds equally dollars for financial traders, Spread Networks by Zayo has upgraded the link between Secaucus and Carteret, New Jersey with a 5 Gbps wireless solution that provides an improved latency of 90.065us.
At a line rate of 5 Gbps, a 64-byte packet is now processed in 100 nanoseconds, five times faster than competing wireless systems. The route also has five times the bandwidth of a typical low latency wireless network.
Spread’s technology uses a larger dish on an active gimbal to penetrate adverse weather and optimize signal strength, enabling a robust network.
“Microsecond improvements in network speed can translate to a significant advantage for financial traders,” said Brandon Gouin, general manager of Spread Networks by Zayo. “This route offers the leading commercially available solution between these two key data centers in the financial corridor. With our ultra-low latency fiber route between Mahwah and Secaucus, and Spread’s flagship fiber route between Chicago and New York, we offer traders the lowest end-to-end latency solutions.”
Zayo acquired Spread Networks in February and created a standalone business unit, Spread Networks by Zayo. The company also expanded in Europe, South America and Asia.
