Colt Deploys Infinera in Low-Latency European Backbone

Colt has deployed Infinera's optical networking systems to support low latency services on its next generation pan-European network.

Colt is now offering services with a measured latency of 4.22 milliseconds between London and Frankfurt and 2.65 milliseconds between Paris and Brussels.

Infinera said its low-latency solutions are engineered to provide significantly lower latency than conventional DWDM solutions through the use of innovative optics and electronics that drive latency out of the optical network. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"We've worked closely with Colt to customize a solution to deliver the lowest possible latency to the Colt network," said Infinera vice president for network strategy Chris Liou.
