HFN Delivers Next Generation of Ultra-Low Latency with RF Wireless
50% Faster Route vs. Prior Lowest Latency Path Optimized Network Redundancy between Weehawken and Secaucus
PARAMUS, NJ (May 14, 2014) – Hudson Fiber Network (HFN), the leading U.S.-based transport and IP services provider, announced today its launch of the fastest route between 300 Blvd East, Weehawken, NJ and 755 Secaucus Road, NY4, Secaucus, NJ. The new route is delivered via wireless RF technology through HFN’s exclusive partnership with ULL Networks.
The new route will significantly enhance network diversity between two key data centers: NJ2 in Weehawken and NY4 in Secaucus. Testing on the ultra-low latency RF wireless path has confirmed a latency metric of 32µs RTD at the Gig level and 34.5µs RTD at the sub-Gig level. This measures at roughly 50% lower latency than the prior fastest fiber route between these key sites.
“We continue to see massive demand for ultra network performance and redundancy delivered across the fastest paths available,” said Brett Diamond, President of HFN. “We are proud to deliver this new industry standard by leveraging advanced wireless capabilities that strategically enhance purpose-built advantages for enterprise and financial clients. Our exclusive relationship with ULL enables us to maximize these advantages through wireless and hybrid offerings not available with other providers.”
“As a best-in-breed wireless provider, ULL Networks is excited to team up with HFN to bring top-of-the-line connectivity services to the market,” adds Ed Kopko, CEO of ULL Networks. “Successful launch and testing on the Weehawken to Secaucus route confirms that wireless is creating a new low-latency delivery standard. The fusion of ULL Networks RF technology with HFN fiber will prove to have a powerful impact on the high-frequency trading industry.”
HFN will offer a highly flexible portfolio of ultra-low latency RF wireless services on the route, including bandwidth options from 10MB to Gig E and ranging from month-to-month up to three-year agreements, giving its customers more agility and diversity to ensure security and performance.
