NORCROSS, GA and MARTINSRIED, GERMANY and MUNICH, GERMANY--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) -

Optical Networking today announced that its solution has been selected by CFN Services to provide the industry-leading latency from Washington, D.C., to the New York/New Jersey trading venues. The availability of this route provides trading firms a competitive advantage for those who utilize data sourced from Washington, D.C. Leveraging ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000, the industry's lowest-latency transmission solution, the CFN optical-fiber network will provide the N.Y./N.J. financial community the fastest available access-3.7 milliseconds RTD-to the Washington, D.C., information sources.

ADVA Optical Networking will be available to discuss the FSP 3000 and CFN's New York-Washington, D.C., route on April 19, 2011, and April 28, 2011, at the A-Team Group conference, "The Business and Technology of Low-Latency Trading," being held in London and New York City, respectively.

"CFN is committed to maintain an evergreen network that can quickly and seamlessly react to market demands and changes. This latency improvement for D.C.-N.Y./N.J. provides another proof-point to this commitment," said Wil Tirado, vice president engineering and operations with CFN. "The ADVA FSP 3000 has firmly proven itself as the industry's best-performing solution for low-latency financial trading, which supports CFN's commitment to offer best-in-class solutions. ADVA Optical Networking's technology roadmap and team of more than 500 engineers best position our customers to stay on top of the innovative features and functions that are required in this space today and in the future."
