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.

Avelacom managing director Aleksey Larichev said: “Clients increasingly want to be able to trade multiple markets across a wide range of assets and geographical locations. They require a faster pace of global growth to source liquidity and diversify their business strategies. 

“This is why we’re expanding our footprint to provide more cross-border opportunities for the financial industry. Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) is on the radar of global investors that’s why we are here to help companies to speed up their trading and enhance customer experience.”

Avelacom’s network stretches more than 30,000 miles of long-haul fibre routes across Europe, Asia, North and South America, South Africa and Australia.

It has more than 40 PoPs across the EMEA, APAC and North America regions, including its existing PoP in the ATM facility in Warsaw.

Atman has over 13,000sqm of total data centre space and hosts one of the largest financial hubs in the Central and Eastern European region, offering colocation services for the electronic trading ecosystem.

Daniel Szcześniewski, chief marketing officer in Atman, said: “Warsaw has become an important telecommunications hub in CEE region connecting the East and the West of Europe which is confirmed by many prestigious international carriers and content providers already present here for decreasing the connections latency. 

“We are proud of our carrier-neutrality and happy to connect customers already attracted by Atman Data Center solutions with other market players helping to expand and develop their business.”

Last year, Avelacom added a new PoP in the Australian Security Exchange’s Liquidity Centre. It also deployed a PoP at AT TOKYO.
