Avelacom Launches Lowest Latency Fibre Route Between Tokyo and Seoul

Subscribe to our newsletter

Avelacom, a specialist in ultra-low latency networks and IT infrastructure, has announced the introduction of a new fibre route connecting Tokyo and Seoul, marking a significant achievement in Avelacom’s expansion within North Asia following the opening of its Hong Kong office earlier this year. According to the company, its new route offers the lowest latency figures in the industry, achieving a round-trip delay of under 22 milliseconds.

Responding to the increasing need for rapid access to global cloud services, the new route is directly connected to the relevant Amazon Web Services (AWS) regions. This is designed to cater specifically to the requirements of institutional traders, especially those in the cryptocurrency sector, who need to operate across both traditional and digital asset markets.

The initiative includes the establishment of a new point-of-presence (PoP) at the KINX Gasan data centre in Seoul, which offers an expansion point for Avelacom’s network in APAC, EMEA and the Americas.

Coming in the wake of the company’s recent launch of its JPX Connectivity Solutions service, the new route underscores Avelacom’s commitment to delivering innovative and best-in-market connectivity solutions, particularly for latency-sensitive firms.

Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom, commented: “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.”
