CFN Services has selected ADVA Optical Networking’s FSP 3000 low-latency transmission system for its optical-fiber network, designed to bolster the N.Y./N.J. financial community with the fastest available access (3.7 milliseconds RTD) to Washington, D.C., information sources.
The availability of this route is intended to provide trading firms a competitive advantage for those who use data sourced from Washington, D.C.
“CFN is committed to maintain an evergreen network that can quickly and seamlessly react to market demands and changes. This latency improvement for D.C.-N.Y./N.J. provides another proof-point to this commitment,” says Wil Tirado, vice president engineering and operations with CFN.
“The differences in optical-networking routes and gear have grown more distinct and important as the tolerance to latency in executing trades has minimized,” says Brian Quigley, senior director of global strategy with ADVA Optical Networking. “We have a long history of partnering closely with financial firms around the globe to help them satisfy evolving requirements and to achieve business objectives, and these lessons-learned continue to inform the ongoing development of our FSP 3000 solution. We look forward to working with CFN and the users of this innovative New York-Washington, D.C., network.”
ADVA Optical Networking will be available to discuss the FSP 3000 and CFN’s New York-Washington, D.C., route on April 19 and April 28, at the A-Team Group conference, “The Business and Technology of Low-Latency Trading,” being held in London and New York City, respectively.
