Avelacom’s network stretches over 30,000 miles of long-haul fiber routes across Europe, Russia, Asia, North America, South Africa, and Australia. The company uses 100 Gbps coherent DWDM technology upgradable to 400 Gbps, providing an array of products which are available in more than 25 major trading venues and include superfast fiber routes to emerging markets, at-exchange co-location, ultra-low latency market data delivery and order routing, managed dedicated servers hosting, financial cloud, and other ready-to-trade solutions.
The office will be headed by Gabriel Bassas, Avelacom’s VP of APAC sales. In his new role, Gabriel will build on his knowledge of client and partner needs, as he was already tasked with the company’s business development globally, based out of London.
Commenting on his appointment, Gabriel Bassas, said, “Moving to Singapore and the APAC region presents a significant opportunity for Avelacom to grow both revenues and market share. I have already seen the client demand for our services in Asia, as trading institutions manage their geographic considerations in terms of latency, availability and cost.”
