BTI Systems Introduces Ultra Low Latency Transponder with 20 Nanosecond Transit Time

Dual 10G Transponder Sets the Benchmark for Speed when Time Equals Money

OTTAWA, June 14, 2010 // As others tout speeds in milliseconds and microseconds, BTI Systems is raising the bar for 10G networks, setting the benchmark for ultra low latency route performance with 20 nanosecond transit time in network deployments. The ability to transmit information in nanoseconds meets the needs of service providers and enterprises where ultra low latency connectivity is required to maintain a competitive advantage. Businesses including financial firms conducting direct access trades on the Electronic Communications Network, high-frequency trading applications, and cloud networks running delay-sensitive applications are built on speed of transactions.

Available today, the Low Latency Dual 10G Transponder is optimized to ensure rapid system processing and transparent transmission for 10GE, 10G Fibre Channel and wavelength services. Validated through customer network testing, BTI Systems Low Latency 10G Dual Transponder adds a mere 20-30 nanosecond delay in transmission. This value is equivalent to 6 meters of fiber cable, adding virtually no latency into the network. The 10G DTPR-L, along with EDFA amplifiers and FBG Dispersion Compensation Modules provides an optimized, engineered approach to low latency networking for campus, metro and regional applications. This portfolio capability enables network and service providers to address a diverse range of applications for on-demand services for communications, securing business-critical information, and collaborating with partners and content suppliers.

“In today’s competitive financial marketplace, speed matters. Reducing latency by mere microseconds can provide measurable advantages to traders and financial firms,” states Robert McMann, VP of Provisioning and Procurement for Hibernia Atlantic. “Hibernia’s Global Financial Network was specifically designed to deliver low latency, secure connectivity which is critical to the financial marketplace. Rapid transaction response is crucial and the ability of a network to handle equipment latency at nanosecond rates translates into millions of dollars for our customers.”

“Our design philosophy is to create industry-leading platforms providing high operational value that are simple to deploy,” said Robert Keys, chief architect, Optical, BTI Systems. “In part, this means a no-nonsense design tuned for rapid transmission. The 10G transponder solution epitomizes this approach and that translates directly into customer profitability.”
