BTI Systems claims 20-ns transit time for low latency transponder

BTI Systems says it has set the benchmark for ultra low latency route performance with 20-ns transit time in network deployments. The ability to transmit information in nanoseconds meets the needs of service providers and enterprises where ultra low latency connectivity is required to maintain a competitive advantage.

JUNE 16, 2010 -- BTI Systems says it has set the benchmark for ultra low latency route performance with 20-ns transit time in network deployments. The ability to transmit information in nanoseconds meets the needs of service providers and enterprises where ultra low latency connectivity is required to maintain a competitive advantage -- in particular, financial firms conducting direct access trades, high-frequency trading applications, and cloud networks running delay-sensitive applications.

Available today, the BTI’s new low-latency dual 10G transponder, the 10G DTPR-L, is optimized to ensure rapid system processing and transparent transmission for 10GbE, 10G Fibre Channel, and wavelength services. Validated through customer network testing, BTI’s 10G DTPR-L adds 20-30 ns delay in transmission, the company asserts.

The 10G DTPR-L, along with EDFA amplifiers and FBG dispersion compensation modules, are designed to provide an optimized, engineered approach to low latency networking for campus, metro, and regional applications.

“In today's competitive financial marketplace, speed matters. Reducing latency by mere microseconds can provide measurable advantages to traders and financial firms,” states Robert McMann, vice president of provisioning and procurement for Hibernia Atlantic. “Hibernia's Global Financial Network was specifically designed to deliver low latency, secure connectivity which is critical to the financial marketplace. Rapid transaction response is crucial and the ability of a network to handle equipment latency at nanosecond rates translates into millions of dollars for our customers.”
