euNetworks invests in Stockholm and Moscow routes

Fiber-optic network infrastructure provider euNetworks Group Ltd (SGX: 5VT.SI) says it has invested in a new fiber-based route from London to Stockholm, with dedicated DWDM technology delivering what the company claims is market-leading latency.

Fiber-optic network infrastructure provider euNetworks Group Ltd (SGX: 5VT.SI) says it has invested in a new fiber-based route from London to Stockholm, with dedicated DWDM technology delivering what the company claims is market-leading latency.

euNetworks first began offering ultra low-latency services to Stockholm in 4Q 2010 (see “euNetworks adds London to Stockholm route to finance network”). The upgrade reduces the latency on the London to Stockholm route by 5%, the company says. The straight point-to-point route from London to Stockholm now offers a round trip time of less than 21 ms.

euNetworks has also added Moscow to its euTrade service portfolio, connecting from Moscow back to London on its dedicated finance network. The service provider asserts this route also launches with market-leading latency, offering a round trip performance of 38.19 ms (from Interxion’s London data center to the M1 Moscow MICEX colocation area) with further optimization planned. The offer of low-latency cross-connection in the M1 facility to MICEX also overcomes a significant obstacle for many customers.

euNetworks says the investments demonstrate commitment to important markets, following strong demand from its financial services customers.

“Demand for low-latency connectivity to Stockholm continues to increase, prompting our fiber investment on this important route,” said Brady Rafuse, chief executive officer of euNetworks. “The addition of Moscow means that today, euNetworks delivers leading low-latency euTrade services across our London metropolitan network, through to Slough and Basildon, to Frankfurt, Stockholm, Zurich, Milan and Moscow, directly to multilateral trading facilities.”

He added, “We continue to see great success and strong growth from our euTrade service portfolio, and as a bandwidth infrastructure provider, we will continue to invest to deliver the network performance that our clients need to maximize their business potential.”
