Optimum Lightpath has announced the availability of a low-latency optical transport service aimed at customers in the finance, healthcare, media and government sectors, the new service is available on pre-equipped and pre-conditioned routes on Optimum Lightpath’s footprint, and uses a simple, flat-rate pricing model.
The low -latency optical transport service can deliver speeds down to the microsecond level with guaranteed
service level agreements that originally were developed for Optimum Lightpath’s vertical sector customers, particularly large financial institutions. But large customers in the healthcare and government sectors have also expressed demand for low latency services, the company says.
Optimum Lightpath’s point-to-point, low latency services are supported by a guaranteed minimum latency and circuit turn up time frame, and rapid time to market availability. Route distances are minimized by bypassing common carrier infrastructure, offering each customer their own private expressway, and more routes will be added over time.
The offer is designed for customers that require 1 gigabit and 10 gigabit wavelength services in pre-determined low latency routes within Optimum Lightpath’s NY metro area footprint.
