Aviat Supplies Wireless Transmission Gear for Low-Latency Financial Network

McKay Brothers, a provider of low-latency private carrier services to High-Frequency Trading (HFT) firms, will use Aviat Networks' low-latency wireless transport equipment and services for its microwave network connecting Chicago and New York City financial centers. The installation will use Aviat's Eclipse Packet Node microwave radio platform, which meets the requirements of McKay Brothers in terms of latency, flexibility and upgradeability.

"For McKay Brothers, the Eclipse Packet Node wireless transmission platform proved ideal for building a low- latency wireless transport network," says Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "Plug-in modules for the Eclipse platform enabled us to quickly accommodate McKay Brothers' need for a low-latency solution in its wireless transmission network."
