Avelacom enhances connectivity across Middle East and East Asia

Rick Steves

“Network latency is a critical factor in their operations across multiple, fast-moving markets where seizing arbitrage opportunities instantaneously is essential. We are dedicated to continually optimizing our global network paths. Our London to Tokyo route, a flagship for Avelacom, has been upgraded alongside other key markets in Asia, India, Turkey, and the Middle East.”

Avelacom, a leader in networking and IT infrastructure solutions, has announced a significant upgrade to its backhaul network by shortening fiber optic path lengths by up to 140 kilometers.

The move led to improved network latency for major capital markets across Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, India, Israel, Thailand, Taipei, and Japan.

Faster market data feeds and more efficient order execution

Avelacom specializes in connectivity and IT infrastructure solutions that bolster market-making, arbitrage, and liquidity aggregation strategies.

With a global network featuring a robust 100G DWDM backbone core, Avelacom offers direct access to over 80 trading venues across EMEA, APAC, and the Americas, ensuring sub-millisecond speed for market data and order flow across various asset classes, including equities, commodities, FX, crypto, and derivatives.

The new upgrade marks a pivotal development for global institutional investors and professional traders who operate across multiple exchanges. With this enhancement, users can expect faster market data feeds and more efficient order execution. This improvement is particularly beneficial for sophisticated trading strategies, such as algorithmic arbitrage trading.

Avelacom also upgraded London – Tokyo route

Key financial hubs in the Middle East and East Asia, including Borsa Istanbul, Dubai Gold and Commodity Exchange (DGCX), Saudi Exchange/Tadawul, Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, Thailand SET, Taipei Futures Exchange (TAIFEX), Japan Exchange Group (JSE), and various exchanges in India, are now directly connected through Avelacom’s optimized network. This network provides low latency exchange connectivity, colocation, managed hosting, real-time market data feeds, and order flow, interconnecting these exchanges with global FX, equities, commodities, and derivatives markets.

The optimization primarily occurred in the European network segment, crucial for shaping connectivity routes from European and US markets to those in the Middle East and Asia. The shorter and more direct fiber optic paths ensure faster, more reliable data transmission, enhancing overall market connectivity.

Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom, commented on the upgrade: “Institutional traders and investors are continually seeking enhanced connectivity to markets. Network latency is a critical factor in their operations across multiple, fast-moving markets where seizing arbitrage opportunities instantaneously is essential. We are dedicated to continually optimizing our global network paths. Our London to Tokyo route, a flagship for Avelacom, has been upgraded alongside other key markets in Asia, India, Turkey, and the Middle East.”
