Avelacom expands its pan-European 100G fiber network to support demand for low latency data flow

Avelacom has completed a new segment of DWDM network, designed to be the lowest latency route between London – Moscow. The project includes deploying 900 km of terrestrial fibre and three new points of presence (PoPs) across Europe: in Amsterdam, Bremen and Helsinki. The backbone is connected to Cinia’s C-Lion cable in the Baltic sea and Avelacom’s fiber network in Russia. The latest update helps to achieve sub-35 millisecond latency (round-trip delay) London to Moscow. London – Moscow has always been one of Avelacom’s flagship routes. In 2011 the company first launched its transit network in Europe resulting in best-in-market round-trip delay – 37,1 milliseconds. The link was mainly used for providing services to capital market companies looking to gain lower latency connectivity, market data delivery and order flow to trade between Moscow Exchange and European financial venues.

Aleksey Larichev, Managing Director of Avelacom, said: “Latency is a hot topic among capital market firms. Our recent upgrade cuts up to two milliseconds off to help to support and optimize low latency trading between Europe – Russia. It also leverages access to further markets in Southeast Asia, lowering latency to Tokyo and Shanghai accordingly. Our network testing shows outstanding results: deterministic latency profile, no latency spikes. These are key characteristics for high-performance trading infrastructure.”
