Sidera network upgrade targets lower latency

19 July 2012 |


Sidera Networks will upgrade its network in a bid to reduce latency between financial data centres and exchanges in the New York/New Jersey metro area.

The upgrade to its Xtreme Ultra-Low Latency Network will reduce latency between a number of key locations in the area, including the NYSE’s data centre in Mahwah, New Jersey, helping to better serve financial institutions.

“Since the development and launch of the Xtreme Ultra-Low Latency Network in 2010, Sidera Networks has proudly served the low latency requirements of the financial services market,” said Clint Heiden, president at Sidera Networks.

“We have committed to customers that we will maintain our low latency edge so that they can meet their application requirements, including electronic trading. When completed, this upgrade will deliver on that commitment.”
