Avelacom’s New PoP Takes London-Warsaw Latency Down to 22 Milliseconds

The initiative is designed to provide access to a wide range of financial ‎‎institutions in Poland.

Avelacom, a provider of connectivity and infrastructure ‎solutions, has established a new ‎point of presence (PoP) in Atman Data Center facility to improve customers’ ‎access to the electronic systems of Warsaw’s exchanges. ‎

The initiative is designed to provide access to a wide range of financial ‎institutions in Poland over a low-latency network that also connects ‎trading venues in Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe, and North America.‎

Increasing demand from global investors to access emerging markets in Europe ‎led Avelacom to extend its geographical reach via the new PoP in Warsaw, says the Russian low-latency network operator.

The new PoP is also aimed at ‎expanding the number of options available for the ‎financial services industry to speed up trading while ‎identifying new arbitrage trading opportunities across key ‎financial and derivatives markets.‎

The development will benefit HFT traders who will be ‎able to turbocharge their trading through a super-fast ‎connection that has lowered the latency between WSE and ‎London’s LSE to 22.1 milliseconds.

The new presence has also lowered the latency between WSE ‎and Frankfurt FR2 to ‎‎13.6ms, ‎while the transatlantic ‎latency from WSE to New York has been ‎reduced to ‎‎85.91ms.‎

The decrease in milliseconds is particularly ‎important to banks, high-frequency trading (HFT) firms, ‎FX related applications, and other financial organizations, ‎that ‎now have a super-fast single point of access to ‎international trading opportunities. ‎

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.‎

Aleksey Larichev, Avelacom’s Managing Director, commented: “Clients ‎increasingly want to be able to trade multiple markets across a wide range ‎of assets and geographical locations. They require a faster pace of global ‎growth to source liquidity and diversify their business strategies. This is why ‎we’re expanding our footprint to provide more cross-border opportunities for ‎the financial industry. Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) is on the radar of ‎global investors that’s why we are here to help companies to speed up their ‎trading and enhance customer experience.”‎

Daniel Szcześniewski, Chief Marketing Officer of Atman, added: “Warsaw ‎has become an important telecommunications hub in CEE region ‎connecting the East and the West of Europe which is confirmed by many ‎prestigious international carriers and content providers already present here ‎for decreasing the connection’s latency. We are proud of our carrier-‎neutrality and happy to connect customers already attracted by Atman Data ‎Center solutions with other market players helping to expand and develop ‎their business.”‎
