With services aimed at the financial trading community, Nexxcom Wireless is rolling out its microwave wireless data network in the NYC/NJ and London, UK metro areas, beating the latency of fibre-optic wired services by a significant margin.

The company has provided these latency figures for several popular routes:

PATH LATENCY RTT* SPEED of LIGHT**
Carteret, NJ-Secaucus, NJ < 220uS 174uS
Carteret, NJ-Weehawkin, NJ < 225uS 181uS
Carteret, NJ-Halsey St., Newark,NJ < 155uS 119uS
Weehawkin, NJ-Halsey St., Newark,NJ < 110uS 85uS
Secaucus, NJ-Halsey St., Newark, NJ < 95uS 64uS
Slough, UK-London, UK < 355uS 260uS
Basildon, UK-London, UK < 375uS 272uS


* Actual designed network ** Speed of light as the crow flies.

As a single point of comparison, Nexxcom’s Carteret/Halsey St. wireless network delivers 155 (round trip) microseconds, versus Hibernia Atlantic’s new fibre optic link, which has an SLA of 239 microseconds.

Nexxcom is focused on building turnkey networks for clients. Once a client supplies the end points, Nexxcom engineers the network, gains client approval, acquires the spectra license, negotiates roof rights and tower assets, supervises civil works, installs and aligns radios, etc.
