Avelacom Launches PoP in Virginia to Reduce Crypto Latency

The company has established a PoP in Ashburn to access the Amazon AWS North America region.

Avelacom announced this Thursday that it had expanded its footprint in the American state of Virginia with a point-of-presence (PoP) in Ashburn in order to access the Amazon AWS North America region.

Following the establishment of the new PoP, Avelacom’s AWS Ashburn to AWS Dublin route, which is one of the most popular for cryptocurrency arbitrage, is now the fastest line available in the market, the statement from the company said, with a guaranteed round-trip latency of 65.3ms.

With the new connection to AWS Ashburn, the global connectivity and IT infrastructure provider can provide greater geographical coverage and, according to the company, increased predictable performance for the arbitrage strategies of its clients, which include crypto hedge funds, asset managers, broker-dealers and more.

AWS, which is Amazon Web Services, hosts some of the leading crypto exchanges. In order to keep up with growing demand, the connectivity provider has previously established low latency connections to AWS locations in cities around the world – Dublin, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, and Hong Kong.
