These are critical locations for financial markets.

The new route is over 45km long and includes 14km of ultra low latency CoreSmart® cable. Lumenisity® Limited (“Lumenisity”) supplied the award-winning CoreSmart cable, which is based on NANF® hollowcore technology to enable transmission over long distances and is compatible with regular single mode fibre – both major constraints on other hollowcore fibre architectures. The route is the longest commercial deployment of hollowcore fibre technology to date and its use is exclusive to euNetworks and its customers. It is also the first commercial construction of a long distance hybrid route of hollowcore fibre and regular single mode fibre.

Offering euNetworks’ dedicated network platform euTrade, at bandwidths between 1G and 10G, this hybrid route is 10% faster than an equivalent all single mode fibre cable. It’s the third deployment for euNetworks following successful deliveries of the first hollowcore fibre based commercial route in April 2021 and the second in March earlier this year.

“We have successfully delivered increasingly longer deployments of hollowcore fibre in our network, becoming the first fibre provider in the world to utilise the benefits of this new fibre technology in commercial markets,” said Paula Cogan, President of euNetworks. “From the initial 1km pilot, the teams have gone on to deploy hollowcore cable lengths of 7km and 14km on our network, as well as successfully blending hollowcore fibre with regular single mode fibre on this latest route. We continue to be focused on delivering the best possible bandwidth solutions for our customers and look forward to deploying longer routes with Lumenisity in the coming quarters. Leading the market in fibre-based ultra low latency services throughout Europe remains a key focus for euNetworks.”

“We are pleased to partner with euNetworks again, successfully deploying this new route and achieving this hollowcore cable link length”, said Tony Pearson, VP Sales & Marketing at Lumenisity. “We are excited to reach this milestone with euNetworks, and will continue to deliver a unique cable solution offering longer reach and lower latency for their customers.”

Data travels 50% faster in hollowcore cable, reducing latency by 33%, and providing a round trip saving of 3μs (three microseconds) per kilometre. These latency savings are hugely significant in financial trading applications. They can also be scaled to increase the separation of data centres by 50%, whilst maintaining the latency envelope, more than doubling the area of land in which these data centres can be located.

euNetworks’ euTrade solution is a dedicated network platform supporting the bandwidth needs of the financial services community. The company continues to optimise routes between all the key trading exchanges in Europe, and is supporting major exchange moves this year. This focus ensures delivery of the shortest paths and lowest latencies available in the market.
