Application Note: Ultra Low-Latency Optical Networks

  1. 1. APPLICATION NOTEUltra Low-LatencyOptical Networks “A 1-millisecond advantage in trading applications can be worth $100 million a year to a major brokerage firm, …” Richard Martin, Information WeekInnovation for Run-Time Sensitive ApplicationsIn today’s high-frequency trading environment, fractions of a second make all the difference. As technologyadvances, faster networks drive revenues. Decreasing latency by reducing time in the transport network takesadvantage of the significant differences that exist in optical networks today. It is no longer sufficient to employsmart people and fast computers running great software. The transport network with the fastest equipment andthe shortest fiber distance also makes a significant impact. Successful time-sensitive applications require lowest-latency data transmission – something only achieved through dedicated fiber-optic networks with the fastestelectronics. But not all fiber-based networks yield the same performance. It is a combination of the shortest routeand the optimal transmission equipment that makes the difference.Our Solution –the Fastest System on the MarketOur scalable optical transport solution, the FSP 3000, the ability to provision additional 1Gbit/s or 10Gbit/sis designed to achieve the lowest-latency transmission channels faster than anyone in the market.possible to respond to the demanding requirementsdriven by time-sensitive applications.
