euNetworks Fiber UK Limited, a Western European bandwidth infrastructure company, has deployed an additional 26km of hollowcore fibre cable between Basildon and London. This is connected to the 14km of hollowcore fibre cable deployed in September 2022. With this new development, euNetworks now offers an end-to-end hollowcore fibre route from Basildon to The London Stock Exchange in London, with a 40km total system distance with no mid-span amplification. As with previously deployed hollowcore routes, its use is exclusive to euNetworks and its customers, and delivers ultra-low latency performance.

euNetworks has already successfully deployed three hollowcore fibre-based routes and is committed to augmenting its leading position across major trading routes, delivering the best available latencies in the market. Future deployments will target further ultra-low latency metropolitan and long-haul routes across Europe to support euNetworks’ high frequency trading (HFT) customers.

“We continue to be focused on delivering the best possible bandwidth solutions for our customers and look forward to deploying longer routes of hollowcore fibre in the coming quarters,” said Paula Cogan, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “We have great teams focused on deploying this product on our network to maintain market-leading latency margins in our euTrade services.”

The hollowcore fibre was manufactured by Lumenisity, which was acquired by Microsoft in December 2022.
