Over in western Europe, euNetworks has made some new investments into its low latency connectivity between key financial exchanges. They are now claiming to deliver the lowest latency to the Euronext exchange from both London and Frankfurt.
The Euronext exchange’s core data center is in the Italian city of Bergamo, which lies an hour or so east-by-northeast of Milan. The upgrade reduced euNetworks’ route lengths by 52km and leveraged equipment upgrade to optimize data traffic.
While we don’t hear as much about high frequency traders as we did in the past, their hunger for getting data a few microseconds faster than everyone else continues to drive infrastructure demand on many routes. In this case, the problem of passing around or over the Alps makes it a particularly tricky problem that lends itself to creative solutions.
