ADVA Optical Networking grows market share in high frequency trading with ultra low-latency technology

Popularity of the company’s flagship product with financial community

September 27, 2010.

In the race for fastest access to exchanges and information feeds, financial firms are continuously on the lookout for better solutions. An increasing number of high-frequency trading (HFT) organizations have turned to ADVA Optical Networking to deliver the lowest-latency transmission solution available in today’s market. The latest release of the FSP 3000, ADVA Optical Networking’s flagship product, once again raises the bar for high-speed connectivity thanks to novel low-latency technology.

“The latencies of yesterday do not serve today’s competitive landscape,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO of ADVA Optical Networking. “Best performance can only be achieved by optimizing every aspect of optical transport. Our FSP 3000 has a dedicated low-latency feature suite that has been designed from the outset with the demanding requirements of the financial community in mind.”

Receiving, analyzing and processing data faster than anybody else is fundamentally important to financial firms that engage in time-sensitive trading activities. High-frequency trading is one application that demands the absolute lowest latency between the traders’ computing resources, information feeds and exchanges. The latency of optical transmission systems continues to play an increasingly important role in the end-to-end solution.

“Adapting existing product to this specialized application does not fulfil the marketplace demands,” continued Glingener. “We shave off microseconds and nanoseconds from every component along the path. In addition, we meet regularly with members of the HFT community to help them optimize their overall implementations. While other system houses are trying to catch up with older platforms, we continue to innovate, win customers and build market share.”

ADVA Optical Networking has been a trusted partner to the financial community for more than 15 years. A large majority of the latency-sensitive traffic on the competitive Chicago-to-New York route runs on the ADVA FSP 3000, and new customers are turning to ADVA Optical Networking for their New York metro connectivity, as well. With more than 500 highly-trained engineers on staff, the company is committed to delivering innovative features for low-latency applications that continue to be proven in some of the industry’s most high-impact trading environments.
