McKay Brothers, a provider of telecom networks for latency sensitive traders and risk managers of banks, funds and trading firms, today announced a latency reduction in its industry-leading millimetre wave link between Carteret and Secaucus-NY2 to as low as 182 microseconds per round trip.
The improved performance is the culmination of McKay’s ongoing effort to eliminate excess latency through route improvements, data center optimization and network equipment upgrades.
McKay Brothers co-founder Bob Meade said: “The trading of US Treasury instruments is extremely competitive. It is essential for liquidity providers and other market participants to use the best low latency telecom infrastructure.”
