Spread Networks Cuts Chicago-New York Latency to 12.98 Milliseconds Roundtrip

Spread Networks  announced further performance improvements on its low-latency Chicago-to-NYC fiber route.


Spread's flagship Ultra Low Latency Chicago-New York Dark Fiber service is now operational at a roundtrip latency of 12.98 milliseconds roundtrip, a 100 microsecond improvement from Spread's previous 13.1 millisecond offering.  

Spread's Ultra Low Latency Chicago-New York Wavelength service promises operational round-trip latency between Chicago and New York below 14.1 milliseconds roundtrip when it becomes operational on October 12th.  Spread said these latency improvements to the ULL Wavelength service follow up immediately upon its recent deployment of 100G technology on the same ULL Wavelength service.

  • Spread's network, which is powered by ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 platform, supports a full-fill capacity of 80 wavelengths at 100Gbps, allowing up to 8 Tbps of data transfer per fiber pair. ADVA's 100G technology integrates into Spread's existing platform without service impact, even though Spread already achieves a high number deployment of in-service 10G wavelengths. 100G waves are coherent detected via transponder enablement with SD FEC (Soft Decision Forward Error Correction).
