Avelacom is expanding its footprint in Warsaw by launching a new point of presence at the Atman Data Center colocation facility.
The new PoP will see Avelacom offer its clients improved
latency and throughput performance to connect to a wide range
of financial institutions in Poland. It will also allow clients
to integrate with its equity and derivatives market
participants through a single cross connect.
The PoP forms part of the company’s
pan-European fibre network, which offers latencies from Warsaw
to London of 22.1ms; Warsaw to Frankfurt of 13.6ms; and Warsaw
to New York of 85.91ms.

South America, South Africa and Australia.
