Avelacom, a global network service provider specialising in low latency connectivity and infrastructure solutions, announced today that it has just completed a new segment of DWDM network, designed to be the lowest latency route between London and Moscow.
The project includes deploying 900 km of terrestrial fibre and three new points of presence (PoPs) across Europe: Amsterdam, Bremen and Helsinki. The backbone is connected to Cinia’s C-Lion cable in the Baltic sea and Avelacom’s fiber network in Russia. The latest update helps to achieve sub-35 millisecond latency (round-trip delay) London to Moscow.

Latency is a hot topic among capital market firms.
London to Moscow is one of Avelacom’s flagship routes and follows the company’s 2011 launch of its transit network in Europe, resulting in best-in-market round-trip delay of 37.1 milliseconds. The link was mainly used for providing services to capital market companies looking to gain lower latency connectivity, market data delivery and order flow to trade between Moscow Exchange and European financial venues.
Aleksey Larichev, Managing Director of Avelacom, said: “Latency is a hot topic among capital market firms. Our recent upgrade cuts up to two milliseconds off to help to support and optimize low latency trading between Europe to Russia. It also leverages access to further markets in Southeast Asia, lowering latency to Tokyo and Shanghai accordingly. Our network testing shows outstanding results: deterministic latency profile, no latency spikes. These are key characteristics for high-performance trading infrastructure.”
Avelacom’s network stretches over 30,000 miles of long-haul fibre 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 fibre 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.
