Hibernia Networks will expand its global network platform from Chicago to the financial hubs of Moscow and Mumbai, India. Hibernia also says it now offers improved latency to the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange in Dubai, UAE.
According to Hibernia, round-trip latency performance for the three routes is 105.40 ms between Chicago and Moscow; 176.95 ms between Chicago and Mumbai; and 172.85 ms between Chicago and Dubai. The three routes boast the lowest-latency transatlantic connectivity using Hibernia Express, a transatlantic submarine cable system optimized for latency performance, Hibernia asserts (see "Hibernia Networks touts protected wavelength service across transatlantic submarine network").
"Emerging markets are experiencing significant growth in the financial trading activity," says Kevin McPartland, head of research, market structure and technology at Greenwich Associates. "Upgrading the network infrastructure to industry-leading latency performance between emerging markets and global financial exchanges ensures instantaneous access to market information, driving greater trading efficiencies."
