Tata Communications Launches Global Low Latency Network
The network is touted to deliver unparalleled global connectivity, scalability and flexibility.
Tata Communications today launched a low latency network which will connect major financial capitals in Asia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The network is the first low latency service that offers a multipoint Ethernet platform to the financial services sector and other global industries and will enable financial firms to execute a high frequency trade between locations through a single network and single supplier model.
John Hoffman, Head of Ethernet Product Management, Tata Communications says, “In this hyper-connected world, connectivity drives the global economy. We are at the centre of this information age with our expansive global network reach and the world’s first wholly owned cable ring around the world. The new low latency network is the latest cutting-edge offering in our portfolio. Global financial trading firms initially drove the need for this solution as every millisecond of latency is critical for trading. However, due to rising complexity and importance of specific mission-critical applications, we are also seeing an uptake in demand for similar levels of latency from a growing range of sectors and businesses.”
Customers can build multipoint low latency networks that communicate from city-to-city rather than exchange-to-exchange to serve applications for which latency is crucial, regardless of the software or trading platform used.
Joel Stradling, Principal Analyst, Current Analysis, says, “Tata Communications has been an aggressive early-mover in Ethernet and currently offers the largest multipoint-to-multipoint service network in the market. The combination of its strong global footprint, a broad portfolio of Ethernet choices, operational simplicity that helps to drive cost reductions and an unmatched PBB technology rollout, makes the company’s new Low Latency offer compelling to prospects.
