- Less than 22ms: lowest latency in the industry
- Establishes a new point-of-presence (PoP) at KINX Gasan data center to connect Seoul to Tokyo
- New Route linked to associated AWS regions for crypto cloud connectivity
Riga, Latvia – 16 November 2023 – Avelacom today announces the launch of a new fiber route connecting Tokyo and Seoul. The latency tests have been successfully completed and show the lowest latency figures in the industry, with a round-trip delay of less than 22ms.
Avelacom is a provider of ultra-low latency networks, IT infrastructure, and data solutions for the financial services industry. This project shows Avelacom’s progress in further expanding its network presence in North Asia while delivering innovative and best-in-market connectivity.
In response to the growing demand for low latency access to global cloud providers, the new Tokyo <> Seoul route is also directly linked to the associated Amazon Web Services (AWS) regions. This initiative therefore meets the needs of institutional traders, particularly in the crypto sector, who rely on mission-critical applications to operate across markets.
The project involves the establishment of a new point-of-presence (PoP) at KINX Gasan data center to connect Seoul to Tokyo, and then to Avelacom’s other PoPs in APAC, EMEA and Americas. Avelacom’s PoP in Seoul is a strong base for expansion and also supports institutional traders involved in stocks and derivatives.
Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom, said: “By launching a new point-of-presence in Seoul – along with establishing a brand-new route to connect with Tokyo – Avelacom shows our ongoing commitment to the North Asian financial services market and in providing innovative connectivity solutions that allow the market to develop further.”
Avelacom’s connectivity & IT infrastructure solutions are designed to improve market making, arbitrage and liquidity aggregation strategies, all of which are highly sensitive to latency. Our strength comes from our global network that connects to 80+ trading venues in EMEA, APAC, Americas. We help achieve sub-millisecond speed of market data and order execution across all asset classes: equities, commodities, FX, crypto and derivatives.
