Colt Activates Low Latency Dublin-London Route

 Colt has activated a new low-latency network route from Dublin to London. The company reports a record low latency of 4.267ms between Colt nodes in London and Dublin as well as improved resilience for connectivity up to 10Gbps. The new route is part of Colt’s ongoing investment in its network infrastructure in Ireland and will be followed by an extension from Dublin to Cork, Ireland’s second largest city, toward the end of the year.

Colt currently carries over 500 Gbps of traffic across the Irish Sea. With this announcement, Colt’s total capacity between Dublin and London is now 4.8Tbps.

The route, which is part of Colt’s wider strategic network investment plan for Europe, incorporates the new Sea Fibre Networks cable, CeltixConnect (the shortest, most diverse sub-sea link between Ireland and the UK) and has an optical layer based on the Infinera DTN platform for seamless integration into Colt’s existing 100Gbps ready long distance network.
