ADVA Selected for Ultra-Low Latency NY-WASH Route

CFN Services has selected ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 optical transport solution for an ultra-low latency network linking Washington, D.C., to New York/New Jersey trading venues. The CFN optical-fiber network will provide the N.Y./N.J. financial community the fastest available access -- 3.7 milliseconds RTD—to the Washington, D.C..

"The differences in optical-networking routes and gear have grown more distinct and important as the tolerance to latency in executing trades has minimized," said Brian Quigley, senior director of global strategy with ADVA Optical Networking.
