Some low latency news and some remote connectivity solutions for workers and for students:

Avelacom has added another US/Asia low latency link to its network. Yesterday the financial services networking specialist launched a new Chicago-Tokyo back-up route. It's geographically diverse from the PC-1 route but still within 5ms of latency of that option. Avelacom says it is is preparing for possible surges in financial market volatility over the next few months. 

EllaLink has lined up some data center connectivity for its planned cable system between Spain and Brazil. They have tapped Equinix to open interconnection and colo PoPs in Madrid, Lisbon, and São Paulo. EllaLink's connectivity could reduce latency between Latin American in Europe to some 60ms when it comes online in Q1/2021.

Comcast Business has teamed up with HP's Aruba to empower teleworkers. The two have launched a Comcast Business Teleworker VPN solution aimed at enabling enterprises to more securely connect with their increasingly remote workforces. The pandemic has definitely pushed the industry as a whole to start solving this problem more smoothly and reliably.

And Ciena has teamed up with Verizon for some remote learning. Verizon Innovative Learning will be leveraging devices and security software provided by Ciena to students at Hubbard Media Arts Academy in San Jose, California and also at Baltimore Design School in Baltimore, Maryland. Verizon's program supports students in 264 middle and high schools around the country both with the underlying connectivity and with support for learning the skills needed in a digital world.
