Anova Technologies, the preeminent financial and exchange connectivity provider, has launched wireless RF between 755 Secaucus, the home of DirectEdge, and 165 Halsey, a SFTI POP for NYSE. This build has achieved a latency that is virtually at the speed of light, clocking in at a scant 66.4 microseconds (µs) between radio endpoints. The “as the crow flies” straightest distance of between these two locations translates to 66.3µs of distance-dependent latency, which means the proprietary Anova equipment adds only nanoseconds. As a further comparison, the latency over the fastest fiber route between 755 Secaucus and 165 Halsey is 154µs, which means firms can achieve a 54% reduction in round trip latency by utilizing Anova’s RF system for this particular trade. Anova’s offering also comes with a 99.99% uptime SLA, giving trading firms a robust availability that is very close to what a traditional fiber path can offer.
