Many service providers may claim to have networks specifically designed for the financial services industry, we measured Frontier Networks round trip latency against some of these offerings and are pleased to announce that our high capacity, high availability broadband link offers one of the lowest latency paths between Toronto and New York – all while being supported by SLAs that guarantee performance and up-time.
The low-latency market is all about incremental changes, and small differences between one provider’s offering and another’s can mean the difference between winning or not winning the business from the financial firms that use the services. However, Frontier Networks also believes low latency will directly impact the success of our client’s high demand multi-service voice, video and data traffic requirements.
In telecommunications, the round-trip delay time (RTD) or round-trip time (RTT) is the length of time it takes for a signal to be sent plus the length of time it takes for an acknowledgment of that signal to be received. This time delay therefore consists of the transmission times between the two points of a signal.
Frontier Networks customers have a choice of service performance levels to prioritize their traffic flows, ensuring that critical business application traffic meet their high performance requirements. Frontier Networks Ethernet Services enable customers to seamlessly extend their LAN into the metropolitan area and beyond.
Frontier Networks is committed to providing routes that offer diversity, low-latency and resiliency for all of our customers, not just those in the financial sector.
