Moscow-based network service provider Avelacom expansion of its optical fiber network, which reduces latency on its London to Moscow route, will have a ripple effect of decreasing the latency for trading between the UK and Asia, because Moscow acts as a hub for transmitting to Hong Kong, Tokyo and South Asia markets, according to Alina Karpichenko, marketing manager at Avelacom.

“This route will be of interest to clients interested in trading in markets in Russia and Asia,” she said. “This route can improve flow from Europe to Hong Kong, from Europe to Tokyo.”

Avelacom serves clients in emerging markets, Dubai, Mumbai and China, as well as the UK and the US. Its network covers more than 30,000 miles overall across Europe, Russia, Asia, North America, South Africa and Australia. The company’s routes use 100 Gbps DWDM technology.

“For traders, hedge funds, market makers and investment banks, latency is a crucial factor,” said Karpichenko. “For any companies involved in electronic trading, using algorithms, it’s important to be first. For using arbitrage strategies, even being one microsecond ahead can improve performance.”
