Perseus Wins Global Telecoms Business Award for Second Year

  • Fastest Network Repeats 1st Place with GTB Innovation Award 2013
  • GTB Fixed Network Infrastructure award goes to Perseus for QuanTA the fastest network connection between New York and London

Perseus Telecom, a leading provider of ultra-low latency, high capacity global networks, today announced the Global Telecoms Business 2013 Innovation Award for Fixed Network Infrastructure has gone to Perseus Telecom and partner Reliance Globalcom for QuanTA the fastest trans-Atlantic network connection.

The challenging efforts by Perseus to meet the demands the industry faced in trans-Atlantic latency reduction, has been recognized but equally shared by the successes of customer companies benefitting from this market leading speed. Being able to achieve the lowest latency trading connection between the two major markets of New York and London for customers is a continuing effort by Perseus, who is dedicated to market-to-market connectivity as a core philosophy in the company philosophy.

“Last year Perseus was recognized by GTB for the fastest network between Nasdaq OMX in New York and the BM& Bovespa in Sao Paulo,” stated Marcos Guimaraes, President of Perseus Brazil. “We are grateful for the partnership with GlobeNet that allowed us to build the leading network enjoyed by global stock and derivatives exchanges and their traders who rely on this connection for market leadership.”

QuanTA connects the markets of New York and London in less than 65 milliseconds round-trip-delay (RTD). This is the fastest network connection available in the market for both ultra-low latency as well as big data. The secret to the success of QuanTA is true engineering excellence, dedication to research and development and partnership engineering of Reliance Globalcom and Ciena working together make this milestone for the industry possible.

“Perseus is ecstatic to be awarded by GTB for QuanTA,” says Dr. Jock Percy, CEO of Perseus Telecom. “The race to zero reducing trans- Atlantic latency is important to our customers’ applications of critical real-time data for financial services, digital media, broadcast and big data. We owe a big thanks to our partners who we share this award with and our customers who we look to continue to serve and innovate for every day.”
