Submission + - Low-Latency Network Connects London And Hong Kong ( 1

An anonymous reader writes: Financial traders and law firms are set to benefit from a new low-latency network between London and Hong Kong, which can conduct data on a round trip from Europe to Asia in around 176 milliseconds.

The cable network, run by UK-based trading technology company BSO Network Solutions, has been in place for some time, but previously had to route around large parts of Russia, due to difficulties laying fibre in that country.

However, a new lower latency and higher availability ‘Transit Mongolia’ connection has helped to reduce the time of a round trip by more than 20 milliseconds during the last 12 months.

The news follows an announcement from Hibernia Atlantic last week that a new transatlantic submarine communications cable will be installed on the Atlantic seabed, to connect financial traders in New York and London. The cable will initially be lit with 40Gb technology, which could be upgraded to 100Gb technology in the future.
