The Race to Zero: Metro Wireless Ultra Low Latency High Frequency Trading Networks

In our initial “Race to Zero” paper published in January, 2012 we described how using wireless microwave communications paths implemented by NexxCom Wireless provide the capability to connect datacenters between major trading corridors such as NJ-Chicago or London-Frankfurt to name just two, can dramatically reduce roundtrip latency. As these networks are now in the implementation phase the financial trading firms that are deploying them will see latencies reduced by 30% and more over existing optical fiber paths between the same datacenters.
