Spread Networks offers up 15.75 msec wavelength service

Spread Networks may be the latest service provider to take advantage of the low latency networking craze, but its new 15.75 millisecond wavelength service between New York and Chicago will likely help it stand out from the growing crowd of low latency providers.

Targeted at financial center customers, Spread Networks' 15.75 wavelength service, which provides each customer their own dedicated wavelength, will be available in 1 and 10 Gbps services. By giving customers their own private network connection, financial customers are able to get a ‘clean speed' so data can run as close to the true speed of light through fiber.

This is the second product in its low latency product suite. In August, Spread launched a sub 13.33ms round trip service, which also connects NY and Chicago. 

Financial center customers that sign up for Spread's service will be able to get connectivity between Chicago and Carteret, N.J., the location of NASDAQ's data center. To achieve its low latency wavelength ambitions, Spread Networks said it built a network by trenching a long-haul fiber route that travels the shortest "possible path connecting New York and Chicago."
